Just saw a trailer for the final two parts of Strike Back, and I’m happy to announce Toby Stephens was in it! In a suit with short hair, grim expression and American accent.
With regards to the episode, it seems it’s the Americans trying to get rid of people this time… If it’s not the Iraqis or the Zimbabwis, it’s the Americans, eh?
Still, it’ll be nice to see Toby back on screen. Talented actor and handsome fellow that he is, although he looks a bit tired on the pic on the left (from an interview in the London Evening Standard, 23 March 2010). Maybe his little kiddies keep him awake at night?
In the interview, he says,
“On TV a lot of stuff isn’t well written. You spend a lot of time trying to polish a turd. Whereas in theatre you usually don’t have to expend all that energy selling the thing, because the writing is superior.”
I wonder what he thinks of Strike Back. Does he consider that turd-polishing too, perhaps? Still, as long as you get paid, who cares, right? 😉 (Besides, the Mythbusters proved that you can, in fact, polish turds. So there you have it.)
