And look at Dominic West as a foxy Richard Burton!

Yesterday, BBC America released the first promo photos of Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West (you probably remember him from The Wire but you MUST see him in ) dressed as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton for the upcoming television movie Burton and Taylor, based on the critically panned 1983 stage tour of the Noel Coward play Private Lives.
While the Lindsay Lohan flop biopic wasn't even worth its weight in camp value, this looks like it will be stunning. We say yes!

Check out this 1963 photo of Taylor and Burton, the couple that launched a thousand imitators.
