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).

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…

Oh Look! It’s Him Again! – Recognizing Actor Timothy Spall

“There’s the funny-looking character actor who plays the same role every time. But I’m the funny-looking character actor who plays many different kinds.” – Timothy Spall Tim Spall is one of those brilliant, chameleonic actors who can turn his hand to any role but — probably because he isn’t classically handsome — isn’t a top […]

RIP Sir Ian Holm – Farewell to Bilbo, Ash, Father Cornelius, King Lear and more

Sir Ian Holm has died as of June 19th, 2020, at the age of 88, due to complications with Parkinson’s. This versatile actor will not be forgotten, through the epic roles in epic tales he’s left behind. There’s an old theatrical trope that says if you want to get on you’ll take any part however […]
