Not many people knew of Tony Revolori's name a year ago, but that all changed when The Grand Budapest Hotel came out in March. Wes Anderson cast the unknown Revolori as Ralph Fiennes' faithful lobby boy and sidekick, earning the still young actor a chance to star among one of the most talented casts that ever been assembled.
Appearing alongside Revolori were the aforementioned Fiennes, along with Anderson regulars such as Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, and Jason Schwartzman.
Most of Revolori's scenes were alongside Saoirse Ronan, who was also a new comer to Wes Anderson films but not to the film industry itself. Ronan earned an Oscar nomination at a very young age and has been acting steadily since then, but Revolori was more than capable of owning his own scenes against the actress. In fact, most critics raved that he was one of the best parts in the movie, and his relationship with Fiennes' character was the emotional cornerstone of the whole story.
Of course, such rave reviews did not go unnoticed among the industry, and Revolori's already landed several high-profile film roles as a result. He is rumored to have a role in the upcoming 'Umrika' alongside Suraj Sharma, but that hasn't yet been confirmed. He is also in pre-production of 'When We Were Pirates', which is a smaller independent film focused on the lives of four friends and their bond through troubled times. Either way, Tony's destined for great things based on his performance in The Grand Budapest Hotel, and we wouldn't be surprised if Wes Anderson also chose to collaborate with him again.
