INTO THE WOODS Princes Billy Magnussen & Chris Pine Fraternize; Plus, Rehearsal Shots
Recent Broadway headliner and rising film and TV presence Billy Magnussen stars as Rapunzel's Prince in the new Disney-produced feature film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's fairy tale-themed musical INTO THE WOODS, directed by Rob Marshall, and the actor has taken to social media to share some of his experiences working on the highly anticipated project thus far - including sharing a shot of himself alongside the other prominent prince in the story, played by STAR TREK franchise superstar Chris Pine.
Magnussen wrote on Twitter yesterday, "I mean it is Sunday football right?!
#Gunners" before sharing a pic of himself alongside INTO THE WOODS cast-mate Chris Pine attending a soccer match, incognito.
Previously, last week Magnussen posted a photo commemorating his first day filming on the set, writing, "My first day of shooting!!" and posting a shot of his specially-designed Rapunzel's Prince director's chair on set.
Additionally, Magnussen also recently shared a picaresque, woods-set shot of himself and Protos, the white steed that will act as his horse for INTO THE WOODS.
The confirmed complete cast for INTO THE WOODS is as follows: Meryl Streep as The Witch, James Corden as The Baker, Emily Blunt as The Baker's Wife, Johnny Depp as The Wolf, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as Cinderella's Prince, Billy Magnussen as Rapunzel's Prince, Mackenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, Lucy Punch as Lucinda, Tammy Blanchard as Florinda, Christine Baranski as Cinderella's Stepmother and Tracey Ullman as Jack's Mother, with Lilla Crawford as Little Red Riding Hood and Daniel Huttlestone as Jack.
