Finally a trailer for The Key Man! And you will not only get to see Jack Davenport, but also the great, the fantastic, the one and only Mitzi, Elrond, Hugo Weaving! Woo-hoo! Yeah! Applause!

And now for something completely different.

If you don’t need visuals: here is something while you wait for Jack Davenport to finally record a reading of the telephone book:

THE FIFTH GOSPEL

Written by: Ian Caldwell
Narrated by: Jack Davenport
Length: 15 hrs and 36 mins
Unabridged Audiobook
$ 22.67

In 2004, as Pope John Paul II’s reign enters its twilight, a mysterious exhibit is under construction at the Vatican Museums. A week before it is scheduled to open, its curator is murdered at a clandestine meeting on the outskirts of Rome. The same night a violent break-in rocks the home of the curator’s research partner, Father Alex Andreou, a Greek Catholic priest who lives inside the Vatican with his five-year-old son.

Credit to Frank for digging out this new feature on IMDB . I’m happy to announce that I beat him, yay! This victory is all the sweeter after my embarassing defeat elsewhere; you know you’re a fannish failure if you play a trivia quiz about one of your favourite actors with a dog and the dog wins. Then again, I’m a dog as well…. eh, enough with the canine navel-gazing, try your luck and see if you can beat Frank and me (shouldn’t be too difficult!)

For now, we’re leaving you with some pictures from “Mother’s Milk”, which really exists, no, seriously, no kiddin’, will be released on 9 November in the UK and promises to be awesome. If you like the pictures below, you can get more on MOTHER’S MILK @ FAKEBOOK.

Why, yes, we think he’s smokin’.

Finally!

“Smash”, the singing and dancing Broadway drama, will start tomorrow Saturday, 10pm on Sky Atlantic!

 

Far too long has Europe been deprieved of Jack Davenport’s excellent dastardly-then-again-not-really choreographer Derek Wills. There are two really good videos of an interview with Jack Davenport talking about the character and his thoughts on the show. Part I is here (can’t be embedded, sorry), part II here.

“He [Derek Wills] couldn’t care less about what anyone thinks about him. I sadly do care what people think about me, I wish I cared less but I don’t and it’s quite liberating to play someone like that.”

Jack Davenport (Derek Wills in "Smash")

I’m very curious how “Smash” will be received over here. The British press loves to eat their own, but at the end of the day, it’s the fans who make or break a show. Up to you now, guys!

I’m leaving you with a shot of Jack on the red carpet of the Olivier Awards. Unsurprisingly, he won the award for Best Tux of the Evening.

BA have bagged Jack Davenport as voice-over for their new spot – as much as I love to hear his voice, but you absolutely must keep a bucket under your laptop while watching, it’s rather dripping with pathos. 😉

TO FLY. TO SERVE.

I’m glad he’s promoting BA. Had he given his voice to Ryanair, I’d have been terribly tempted to turn this website into a fanpage for Hello Kitty.

It’s here! It’s good! And Jack Davenport looks woof!

(He shouldn’t give up his daytime job just yet, though…)

Anybody asking “who?” now – Snow Patrol are a pretty neat band from Northern Ireland. It’s a wicked ton of fun to see Jack Davenport in their new “Called Out in the Dark” music vid – rock on, Sparky, rock on!
