Guest Post: A Birthday Tribute to James Purefoy!

James Brian Mark Purefoy is the super talented and ultra hunky British actor, and he turns 47 today, Friday, June 3. And "hunky" is not just my opinion: he was voted "Hunk of the Year" by a British television magazine in 1997. Well, as far as I'm concerned, he's very well-preserved and deserves a "Hunk …

British Acting Royalty on Harry Potter Movies: My Top Ten Favorites

Last week, Roger Ebert tweeted 'Why haven't Helen Mirren and Judi Dench ever made a Harry Potter film?' Hmmm, good question, Mr. Ebert... why haven't they? I certainly would LOVE to see both of them in at least one or two installments. Then a few days later, I read a piece of news report about …

Chat-Worthy Actor: Clive Owen

This past Monday, IMDb homepage featured Clive on its actor spotlight section. As he ranks pretty high up there in my favorite actors list, I thought I'd put him on the spotlight here, too.

Why the Brits/Aussies will always rule US TV

Upon learning this news that David Tenant — the popular star of BBC's Dr. Who — will be a part of the Peacock network, I thought I'd resurrect my old post I did back in June. Funny how things haven't changed one bit since then. Brits/Aussies still very much saturate our shows. Just this Fall, another …
