On the train back from work, I saw a guy who seriously looked like Sam Neill. He had glasses and reminded me a lot of this piccy here (from Sirens). Put a smile on my face, that did. Think he got off in Hucknall, so if you look like a ’93 Sam Neill in glasses reading this and live in Hucknall – you rock!
Pixar/Disney have announced a Monsters Inc. sequel, apparently. Don’t really remember the first one, but it was cute…? The One Show‘s resident grumpy Brummie Adrian Chiles is defecting to ITV, gasp! How very dares he! Top Gear will be getting a US spin-off. Well done! Top Gear is a brilliant show. I know it’s about cars, but why watch it for the motors when the guys are hilarious? Not many people would try to make a rocking chair and a blender from a V8 engine… 😉
Guess who were on the front cover of the latest Sky magazine, btw? Richard Armitage and Orla Brady! As it’s the May issue, it has three pages on Strike Back. There were short interviews with both of them.
If I can find the right leads to the scanner, I’ll scan it in. If not, there will be photos, unless someone else scans it in before I get around to it. Richard talks about being exhausted after the training and how he learned how to break someone’s neck with his bare hands – and thinks that’s a bit scary. Aww. It’s basically the stuff that’s not mentioned in the interview on the Sky1 Strike Back site. It also has a photo gallery, and other bits and bobs. OH, SNAP! And wallpapers! 😀 The premiere red carpet gallery has lots of RA pictures as well. Porter mania begins 5 May at 9pm on Sky1.
UK media have reported about the Hitler Downfall meme, because the company behind the film have made a move to remove them off the net. Good luck with that. I’ve actually got Der Untergang, but haven’t seen it yet. Will get around to it at some point.
Et finalement, Sky1 have made another Discworld adaptation: Going Postal, showing in the end of May. I haven’t actually read that book, so it’ll be interesting to watch. Really enjoyed Hogfather and The Colour of Magic; they were very well done, so Going Postal should be a good watch as well.
Have a nice weekend!
