Patrick Stewart & Ian Mckellen Caught Chatting About Catheter Use Onstage


Patrick Stewart Ian McKellen Harold Pinter

The two friends were chatting onstage before their first act and became so engrossed in the conversation, they missed the curtain-up call and found themselves acting out the insertion of a catheter for a packed theatre.

Stewart explains, "Ian and I were both onstage when the curtain went up... and this night I had been telling Ian, 'I'm having to see this urologist and he's putting this stuff into my bladder... with a catheter'. I said, 'It's a little strange but I've got used to it. The man who's doing it is a friend of mine, so it's all within the family'.

"And Ian said, 'Well, you know, I do that to myself... I don't have to go and see someone else; let me show you how I do it'.

Danny Dyer Harold Pinter

Danny Dyer, the actor once branded one of the most promising young actors in Britain after his excellent turn in Human Traffic, has joined the cast of Hollyoaks, Later.

Danny DyerDanny Dyer Smoking Outside The ITV Studios

Dyer - who has bizarrely been typecast as a hard man - will cause serious problems from  the Hollyoaks cast with "with high-stakes poker, Russian roulette and kidnapping all on the cards," according to MTV. Jane Steventon, producer of Hollyoaks Later, said: "I'm thrilled that we have brought together such an amazing cast for this year's Later and with the addition of Danny Dyer, the adventures can really kick off."

Ian Mckellen's Gay Motivation


Ian McKellen Ben Kingsley Harold Pinter Jeremy Irons

Sir Ian McKellen became an actor to meet men.

The 70-year-old actor - who announced he was homosexual in 1988 - admits he felt isolated when he was younger, but thought he would meet other gay people if he embarked on a stage career.

The Tailor Of Panama Review


Good
Somebody told Pierce Brosnan to change his image.

In The Tailor of Panama -- based on John Le Carré's novel and directed by John Boorman (Beyond Rangoon, Zardoz) -- Brosnan trades in the sophistication of James Bond for the identity of crude, disgraced spy Andy Osnard, an MI-6 operative that has to be shipped off to Panama on account of his loathsome behavior. Once he arrives in Panama City, the bad behavior doesn't stop: Osnard immediately sets upon the task of uncovering "what's going on" with the Panama Canal. Rumors swirl that it will be sold to another country now that Panama has it back from the U.S. Or perhaps there will be a coup from a populist underground?

The Handmaid's Tale Review


Very Good
Margaret Atwood's highly regarded novel came to the screen in 1990 in an uneven yet still gripping production (newly released on DVD). Natasha Richardson makes perhaps the biggest impact in her career as Offred, the "handmaid" at the center of a dystopic future where ultra-right wing factions are in control of the government, martial law rules, and biological agents have rendered 99% of women sterile. Those women who are still fertile and have been convicted of some crime, however ridiculous, become handmaids, stripped from their lives and sentenced to service the remaining rich and powerful, whose wives can't conceive children.

Offred finds herself at the mercy of a good-natured but subtly manipulative commander (Robert Duvall) and his faded-star wife Serena Joy (Faye Dunaway). And soon enough she slips her way into an underground aiming to overthrow the fascist regime.
