* DoingItForTheArt: He studied painting for two full years before shooting even began on ''Mr. Turner'' so that he could knowledgeably portray one of Britain's greatest painters actually practicing his craft on screen. He developed his skills to a point where he can copy [=JMW=] Turner's paintings and have his version be all but indistinguishable from the original.
