 Interview: Rhys Ifans by Elizabeth Weitzman: The actor with a mad poet lurking inside - This Month's Cult Movie Man - ...
"Comedy is at its mast effective," declares actor Rhys Ifans, "when it's at its most subversive." He should know: As the star of the current Human Nature, Ifans wickedly colludes with writer Charlie Kaufman and director Michel Gondry in pulling the rug swiftly and surely out from under their audience.
Welsh-born and London-based, Ifans is best known for providing a proudly lowbrow antidote to the blinding star wattage in Notting Hill (1999), as Hugh Grant's perpetually unwashed and underdressed lout of a roommate.
As Puff, a man who's been raised as an ape in the wild, Ifans is trapped by scientist Tim Robbins and forcefully "socialized." Like Kaufman's script, Ifans' turn is almost too slippery to grasp; the same could be said for this mad poet of a performer.

Rhys Ifans portrays 'Puff' in director Michel Gondry's bizarre romantic comedy, "Human Nature." Casting the part of the wild man raised by an insane father who believes himself to be an ape was a daunting task.
Gondry and Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Charlie Kaufman ("Being John Malkovich") saw dozens of actors before Rhys Ifans auditioned for the intriguing role.
Gondry recalls that Ifans totally understood the character's complexities and immediately blew them (Gondry and Kaufman) away.

 IGN: Rhys Ifans Takes Off
In his latest film, Danny Deckchair, Ifans is reunited with his Human Nature co-star (in a slightly less master-servant capacity) Miranda Otto for a whimsical tale of Australian romance, compounded by the seemingly impossible prospect that a man can fly if he ties enough helium balloons to his backyard lawn chair.
Ifans acknowledges that he is hardly a typical romantic comedy leading man; rather, he enjoys maintaining a more elusive persona in the eyes of international audiences.
At the same time, Ifans confesses that it was not hard to pretend to fall for Otto, a natural charmer who stole many scenes from the climactic battle sequence in last year's Lord of the Rings conclusion Return of the King.

Rhys Ifans stars in the warmly engaging comedy "Danny Deckchair."
Rhys Ifans is a character actor par excellence, a skilled scene-stealer who has lifted from the likes of Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts ("Notting Hill"), Tim Robbins ("Human Nature"), Kevin Spacey ("The Shipping News") and Adam Sandler ("Little Nicky").
Ifans is all charm and sturdy sweetness as Danny, while Otto (about as far away from her icily dignified turn in "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" as you could get) is the perfect foil, equally sweet but with an earthier verve.

Rhys Ifans is perhaps one of the most chameleon-like British actors working in the business today.
Born and raised in Wales, Ifans began acting in Welsh dramas before graduating to the silver screen in August (1996), directed by Anthony Hopkins.
With a menacing turn opposite fellow Brit actor Daniel Craig in Enduring Love, the lead role in a Peter Cook biopic and a part in Michel Gondry's next film, it's safe to assume that Ifans will be continuing to showcase his considerable talents for some time.
