While he hasn't done much lately, he was one of my favourite actors when I was a kid. I think he was the best Hercule Poirot on film -- I just watched Death on the Nile again last week and he was great. And as the Beeb says: he was a well-known raconteur. And I love any and all raconteurs.
If I could fix me up a week of twilight hours we'd sit on the point and watch the sun continually flounder. Bathed in gold we'd plug into some kind of power and connect with those days back before all of this went sour.
No joke Roy. The double shot of '24' & 'The Shield' on Tuesday is a little slice of heaven on my TV. I have a feeling that Shane's chick is playing him and she's either a.) not pregnant or b.) the kid's not his.
