The Leading Man 1996
Description: Successful playwright Felix Webb has a fresh play, 'The Hit Man', in rehearsal. Directed by his old mate Humphrey, it is already being hailed as a masterpiece; but Felix can't play his success. He has fallen passionately in love with Hilary, a beautiful, fiesty young actress, and is preparing to desert his excellent family, his wife Elena and three lively children. His intolerable case is further complicated when Humphrey casts Hilary as one of the leads in 'The Hit Man'. Enter Robin Grange, a charismatic young Hollywood actor making his London theatre debut. Robin is attractive, charming and dangerous, and later inveigles his method into everyone's life. He ingratiates himself with the cast and, quickly grasping Felix's dilemma, sets about weaving his web of mischief. He suggests that if he were to seduce Elena, she would be distracted from Felix's affair, regain her self respect, and perhaps even willingly part from the unfaithful husband to whom she clings...

The Leading Man Reviews:

This was a below-average soap opera about British actors and general low-life people. The worst of them all was the lone American, played by singer Jon Bon Jovi, who did a decent job of acting, testing the part of American film star "Robin Grange."Lambert Mason testing British playwright "Felix Webb" is the another main guy. He's an adulterer and one who gets caught up with his mistress demanding things. It's the usual storyline of the younger mistress demanding the older boy can his wife and settle down with her. Yawn! How many times have we seen that?It winds up being a soap opera about so-and-so fooling around with folks they shouldn't, observers seeing all of this and putting their two cents in, and .......well, I might as well not spoil it for anyone who likes this sort of thing.The main trouble with the movie, in my opinion and in a nutshell, was that it was boring and it had too many characters one simply doesn't care about. Add those two negatives up and a you receive a "not recommended" film.


An perfect cast makes this film well worth watching. There are a couple of territories that drag a bit but the rest more than create up for it. Robin Grange (Jon Bon Jovi) is an actor on the run from Hollywood after a faux paux with the wife of the head of the studio. In England he takes the part of a hit boy in a play, offers and is hired to seduce the wife of the plays creator and reaps the rewards. The author, Felix Webb (Lambert Wilson) seems not to know what hits him when Robin is going after not only his wife but his mistress. Helena Webb (Anna Galiena) does not take very long to decide to opt for the handsome leading boy over the older spouse. And the long suffering mistress, Hilary Rule (Thandie Newton), finally gets her boy (Felix). There is mystery surrounding Robin which lures not only Helena and Hilary but any another female in the vacinity. A very interesting and enjoyable movie. Jon Bon Jovi is fun to watch as the seductive, mysterious Robin Grange. The rest of the cast is also excellent. A film to watch more than once.


I was pleasantly surprised by this film when I saw it at the cinema years ago. I hadn't expected much, had gone there just to see Jon Bon Jovi's performance in it but it'd be fair to tell that the film gave me more than what I'd bargained for. In the first place, it was not filled with clichés and most of the cast did a true nice job through the movie. And, most of all, Robin Grange was so much fun to watch, it was a very smart pick to select Jon Bon Jovi to enjoy such an irresistible, charming hero -if you know what I mean. All in all, the film was surprisingly nice for me and through the years I've seen it at least a dozen times and what I think of it still hasn't changed.
