Suckage de luxe. This had potential; unfortunately, TV series don’t get the chance to grow and develop anymore, it’s either instant success or the axe. The pox on your houses, big wigs at ITV!


Now could somebody please cast Jack Davenport in something that will last? Not ending up dead would be a bonus. We don’t ask for too much, do we?

(Incidentally, this is post no. 222 – so how about a series lasting 222 episodes over 22 seasons?!)

According to IMDB, it is rumored that Jack Davenport is going to be in the next Pirates of the Caribbean installment, Dead Men Tell No Tales. Check it out for yourself here.

Also, according to Mr. Davenport’s CV posted on his agent’s site HERE, he’s going to be playing a character named Lancelot in the upcoming movie The Secret Service. This seems to be less of a rumor than the POTC news, but until it’s officially announced, we’ll still call it a rumor.

We’ll keep you posted as this news is confirmed (or not!).

Jack has been hard at work in the Simon & Schuster Audio studio recording Bellman & Black: A Ghost Story by Diane Setterfield, available November 5. Oh, and even more good news: The version he’s reading is unabridged.

In a desperate bid to save the only precious thing he has left, he enters into a rather strange bargain, with an even stranger partner. Together, they found a decidedly macabre business.

And Bellman & Black is born.
