So there I am, watching The Waiting Room (as part of my effort to watch as much stuff with Rupert Graves in it as possible) when I had to stop watching temporarily because of a fit of the giggles. Why? Because Rupert's character in this (George) just happens to be married to Zoe Telford - who was Sarah in Sherlock. I had no idea because I generally don't look up these things on IMDB before I watch. There is a channel on youtube with a fair bit of RG's stuff on it http://www.youtube.com/user/supergravesdigger
I watched this movie a while ago but it has only recently occurred to me to post it here. The movie is called 'Wild Target' starring Bill Nighy as Victor Maynard, A middle aged hit man with family problems and plastic on his sofa, who is hired to kill a woman after she cons a mobster out of £900,000. When he fails at this (after falling in love with the woman) the mobster hires another hit man to take care of both the woman and Victor. Martin Freeman plays Dixon, the sadistic assassin who is second-fiddle to Victor Maynard. While in awe of Victor, Dixon jumps at the opportunity given to him by the mobster to dispose of the greatest hit-man ever known. The movie in general is pretty funny and also stars Rupert Grint (Ron from Harry Potter) as Victor’s bumbling apprentice he later acquires. I love Martin Freeman in this movie however. He is so good at playing bad. See another side of Dr. John Watson! A must watch for fans of Martin Freeman.
Gabriel Byrne, Douglas Hodge, Gina McKee, Charles Dance, Rupert Graves and Ruth Negga star in the four-part drama written by Robert Jones (Murder, Lennon Naked) and directed by Ed Fraiman (The Philanthropist), which is inspired by Chris Mullin's novel A Very British Coup. Deputy Prime Minister Tom Dawkins (Byrne) vows to take on the American petrochemical company Petrofex after a devastating accident on British soil. Following the suspicious death of the Prime Minister in a plane crash, Dawkins' understated political ambitions are tested as heavyweights Ros Yelland (Sylvestra La Touzel) and Felix Durrell (Graves) vie for the top job, but neither appears to have justice for the victims at the forefront of their campaign. ~*~ Unfortunately the first episode of this was on Wednesday on Channel 4 but there are another 3 to watch (next on the Wednesday 14th at 10pm) and the first can be seen on 4od if you're in the UK - http://www.channel4....ecret-state/4od Interestingly, some of this was filmed in Liverpool so I have more than just the excuse of seeing RG to watch it. I have recorded it.
