Post by Guest on Thu 24 Oct 2013, 11:17 am

Just thought I'd start a thread about people who most of us may have heard of but we don't seem to hear that much about these days.

JIMMY NAIL - Perhaps most famous for his character OZ in "Auf Wiedersein, Pet" as well as the Private Eye "Spender" and even dabbling with a singing career at one point, the Sid the Sexist look-a-like seems to have vanished from the telly. In this age of impossibly beautiful but ultimately talentless people dominating our screens, it seems a shame that someone like Nail can't find another vehicle to get himself back on our screen.

Anyone think of any others we really don't see any more but probably should.

He was managing Gabala FC in Azerbaijan last time I saw him.

Looking for Jimmy Nail

Sounds like an idea for a brilliant Sky Documentary (or Channel Five).

Quite an obvious one, I suppose, but Mark Hamill. Don't think I saw anything of him after Star Wars apart from a Simpsons cameo.

Hamill was in "Jay and Silent Bob go to Hollywood" (playing himself playing a character called "C*ck-knocker") In the same film Carrie Fisher played a nun that Jay tried to eat out whilst she was driving.

Missus got us the box set from work. Was going to crack it open last night as she's in NYC but opted for WWW instead.

Sean Bean is my favourite actor (after Denzel Washington and Mr Sidney Poitier of course).

Sean Bean goes in one of the boozers where I used to live infreqently, a number of mates have met him and say he is a genuinely lovely chap. Very down to earth and approachable.

Read a few things along those lines which is fairly impressive given his success across the pond. Did his dog bone your mum's dog or is he a cat man?

I have never met the man Sean so would have no insights into his domestic pet preferences, if indeed he has any.

Having read all of the Game of Thrones books to date, I can confirm that Jerome Flynn is going to have a fair bit availability to go looking for Jimmy Nail.

Just as long as you don't spoil it for those who care about such things.

Wacthed half an episode of GoT and to be honest, don't see what the fuss is about. Mrs667 was bending my ear at the time about the proliferation of naked women and asking whether it was essential to the plot (I wasn't really paying attention to all the words) but once the bosoms were off-screen I lost interest in the story.

May give it another go but am currently watching Breaking Bad and still trying to dechiper why some people think it's the best thing that's been on tv in the last fifteen years. It's OK but I can't see me watching it again...unlike Sopranos/Deadwood/Wire etc

Is also nonsense. Whilst I agree Breaking Bad is spectacularly good the same is true of the Wire and definitely is the case with the Sopranos which is beyond compare.

"Richard Blackwood (born Richard Clifford Blackwood on 15 May 1972, Clapham, London, England) is a British comedian, media personality, and occasional actor and rapper. He co-presents a show on the London radio station Choice FM and guests as a disc jockey at various nightclubs."
