And she had managed to get an entire hard boiled egg in there. Extraordinary muscle control, I expect she did a lot of yoga. Geri Halliwell can perform the same trick Im told. Ah my boy! You really must try this pea soup with stilton. Exquisite. Although I do find it a trifle cruel on the back of the throat. A bit like smoking twenty woodbines through a sock.
So Equity has agreed terms with Eon, the producers of the James Bond films to allow their members to work on the film. The threatened strike is due to begin on December 1st which would have halted the production supposed to begin in January of next year. I dont know, militant bloody luvvies. In my day actors knew how to behave themselves. Hit your marks and learn your lines. Thats what I always used to advise junior thespians who sought my advice. These days theyve all got a solicitor in tow. "How much of the backend can I get?", they cry. Actors are fond of getting hold of a good backend. Oh. Apparently the backend refers to the share of the films profits, Im advised. Funny, Im sure that wasnt what Gielguid was talking about when I heard him talking about back ends. Hmm.
I gather that congratulations are in order for Stephen Daldry and his new bride Lucy. This caused all sorts of kerfuffle in the press because most of them assumed that he was gay. I myself have been on the receiving end of this kind of unwarranted press intrusion. Mind you, I did have to pay a lot of money to plant the story, "Whiners Gay Romp Shocker" in all the tabloids. I was being sued for maintenance by a woman who claimed Id fathered her children. The fact that she was married to me at the time only made the case more difficult to defend. However my brief successfully proved that I was gay during the period my children were born and therefore I couldnt possibly have fathered them despite all the DNA evidence to the contrary. He then proceeded to sue the tabloids whod printed the filthy lies about me being gay as I could prove conclusively that I was 100% straight. Honestly, you cant let these people get away with that sort of thing.
Ralph Fiennes is being courted to play the serial killer Frances Dollarhyde in the forthcoming remake of Red Dragon. Oh dear God. What are casting directors on these days? The man is about as terrifying as Robert Kilroy-Silk on that hopeless new game show of his. I tell you who they should cast Jonathan King. Well he scares me."
