He's NOT my favorite actor, but he did a very nice job in The King's Speech. And he seems like a genuinely nice guy.
I've just found it's hard to resist this photo. I can't give a credit for it, it looks like it came out of a magazine. I found it at TheEnglishMuse ages ago. It's been kicking around here for so long I thought I just had to use it. I love the silvery light, the John Singer Sargent faded elegance quality about it. The photographer did an excellent job here so if you know who it was, let me know! Let's give him/her proper credit!
Anyway, congrats to old Colin. It'll be hard now to go back to some Brigitte Jones or Mamma Mia sequel won't it?
