It was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor...
By now everyone in the UK (and probably everywhere else come to that) must have seen reports in which
Ricky has pretty well dropped David's name in all of his recent interviews on TV and radio in the UK, and the story hit the UK press with a bit in The Sun yesterday.
I asked DB if there was any substance to the story, and this was his measured response: "This may happen, yes. But it'll depend on what the weathers like next year." So let's pray the climate is pleasing to DB in 2006 as my mind is already working overtime trying to imagine what kind of character would be created for him.
For the first series, stars Ben Stiller, Ross Kemp, Kate Winslet, Les Dennis, Samuel L Jackson and Patrick Stewart all played distorted versions of themselves, all to cringingly convincing effect.
Ricky must be applauded for persuading Les Dennis to get his clobber off if nothing else...and for the incredible faces he pulls himself as a camp Genie of the Lamp in the same episode, which was one of the funniest things I've seen on TV, ever.
