Man Of A Thousand Faces? Move Over Lon Chaney! – Christian Bale

Some actors can adopt any number of accents. Others are comfortable under pounds of prosthetics. Yet more can slim down, bulk up, or stack on mountains of muscle. It takes someone very special to be able to manage all three. I would argue that one such actor is Mr Christian Bale. To be honest, the […]

You’ve Been In Two Huge Franchises? A Brief Bio of Benedict Cumberbatch

Prior to 2010 not many people had heard of Benedict Cumberbatch  nor could they, probably, pick him out of a line up. That wasn’t due to lack of exposure; parts in seventeen TV shows, ten films, thirty radio programmes, and eighteen theatre plays gave him a decent amount of public attention but he was never […]

Best of: British Legends of Stage & Screen

    With a lot of encouragement and advice from RunPee C.O.O. Jill I’ve been doing occasional biographical articles about British talent and what they bring to the big — nay — huge blockbuster franchises. It’s one of those mysteries lost in the depths of time…how did this actually start? My recollection is that I […]

Look Up “Talent” And”Versatility” And You’ll Find Anthony Hopkins

There are ways of saying how old you are without saying how old you are. For instance, if you were to say that the first Doctor Who you remember watching is William Hartnell, then you’re of a significantly more mature vintage than if you remember, say, David Tennant. I was thinking there’d be a similar […]

Of Hobbits, Detectives, and Arthur Dent: Martin Freeman

Who do you get when you need an ordinary, man next door figure who will end up being thrust into some decidedly extraordinary situations? Someone who can play an exceptionally ordinary man of the people who just happens to be swept up by aliens and ends up being flung across the galaxy. Someone who can […]

Once more, with freeness: San Diego Comic Con 2021 hosts 2nd Free Online Convention due to Covid

Greetings, fellow geeks and con-lovers! I wrote up the salient points about the 2021 San Diego International Comic Con for you, in an easy to read format (especially if you’re all DR:TL about the press release I posted underneath). DEETS: San Diego 2021 [email protected] Like last year, it’s free to virtually attend (No LINES!) Like […]

The Unusual, Odd-looking, Versatile Dobby — AKA, Toby Jones

Last year I wrote an article about Timothy Spall; one of those actors who you see in lots of character roles. Here’s another such actor. Sometimes small roles, sometimes big roles; always noticeable because he doesn’t look like your stereotypical leading man. In fact, he is what you might think of as — and I’m […]

Dame Maggie Smith – Harry Potter’s Minerva McGonagal, Dowager Countess of Downton Abbey, and so much more…

(Don’t Panic: Maggie isn’t dead. I just wanted to write a bit about one of my favorite actresses.) Dame Margaret Natalie Smith, CH DBE, or Maggie Smith as she’s more commonly known, has been acting for very nearly seventy years. She started out as a student with the Oxford Playhouse in 1952 and made her […]

The Film Legacy of Sean Connery

This weekend I had one of those “aww” moments when you get some sad news. Not so sad as to knock you sideways, like the death of a parent or a favourite dog, but sad enough to give you a moment’s pause to think back and reflect. That moment was when I heard that Sir […]

Rumors: will Tom Hardy be the next Bond?

The news is out! Well… sort of.  A little known Star Trek themed blog called The Vulcan Reporter scooped the rest of the world by announcing on 18th September that the next actor to play James Bond would be Tom Hardy. Now I’m not going to use phrases such as “total fiction”, “definitely made up”, or […]
