Good Boy, Sparky! will be updated this weekend and undergo some changes which will hopefully improve performance. So from Friday to Sunday you may encounter the 404 page of doom. No worries, all is fine, and things should be up and smoking running again come Monday.

Unbeknown to most, Sparky Davenport used to be the Marlboro Man

Oops, another year (almost) gone by – time’s flying! With flying times come flying changes, and what’s true for life in general is also true for websites.

Good News: Frankie will be a new dad very soon. Congratulations and all the best to him and his girlfriend, and I wish the little one a great start into her life! Huzzah!

Bad News: Due to Frankie being a new dad very soon, he doesn’t have the time to look after Good Boy, Sparky! anymore. Absolutely understandable, but still: *sigh*

So to him and you and all of us a Merry Christmas, Blessed Yule and a very happy New Year!

Cheers!

This just in: Christian Borle will be responsible for the music in “Smash”.

AFTERELTON asks a just question:

HOW GAY IS NBC’S “SMASH”?

And while it’s not often that AfterElton praises the inclusion of a homophobic character, here, Dererk, to be played by Flash Forward’s Jack Davenport, in this case, we’re happy to see it.

Having Derek be a straight homophobic choreographer not only gives Tom a foil with which to spar, thus giving him more potential storylines, it also deals with the fact that homophobia is still very much a part of American society. And having it be a supposedly sophisticated New Yorker, rather than a stereotypical rural or conservative character behave homophobically, gives it a fresh spin.

Fully agree with Michael Jensen there. It all depends on how this will be written, of course.
And anybody who knows fandom will prepare for a bazillion of “Derek coming out of the closet” fics…

Next: a new picture of “The Key Man” has surfaced!

In further news, “Mother’s Milk” is rumoured to be out in spring (of 2011, until further notice…)

Hamilton and Hodell have added a show reel to Jack’s page.

You know what I really dislike about Jack Davenport’s relocation to the USA? It takes twenty times more work to get information. And when something finally lands on my desk, it’s outdated. So this news from L.A. Theatre Works is not really “news”, as “Henceforward” by Sir Alan Ayckbourn, the radio play in question, was already aired on 1st of January. But at least you got the chance to get it streamed on demand, so it’s not non-news.

A reclusive composer hopes to reunite with his estranged wife and daughter, hoping their reconciliation will allow him to create his greatest musical masterpiece. But his own erratic impulses hinder his journey to creative freedom.

Starring Jared Harris as Jerome, and Anne Heche as Nan in Act One and Corinna. With Moira Quirk, Paula Jane Newman, Darren Richardson, and Jack Davenport.

Directed by Martin Jarvis

Regarding the website: new screencaps and interviews will follow soon. You may not see it at the moment, but Frank and the pixels are slaving away behind the scenes. Thanks for your patience!

We’ll get to Jack Davenport’s whereabouts in a minute, but let me introduce a friend of mine first:

Frank the Poodle!

As you can tell, Frank’s a bad role model. Frank doesn’t care, though. Nor do I. So please, no emails about the dangers of smoking again, cheers. He’s not particularly interested in Jack Davenport (ok, let’s be honest, he had no idea who Jack Davenport is), supports the worst football team on this planet and there’s not one TV show we both like. But still, Frank’s a great mate and offered to jump in to help me out with “Good Boy, Sparky!”, and here’s why:

The recent lack of updates was partially due to Jack Davenport working on whatever he’s working that I don’t know of (and therefore can’t tell you anything about – does that make any sense?) and partially because I’ve been and still am a bit under the weather. Unfortunately, that won’t change any time soon, but I didn’t want to give up the website. I’m very happy that Frank offered to maintain the website for me; he’ll start updating the galleries next week. I’ll still be around though, no worries.

Cheers, Frank! Woof!

And now for the all-important question:

“WHAT’S JACK DAVENPORT BEEN UP TO, LATELY?”

Well, there was the becoming-a-parent-bit. Kids keep one busy. And awake. And you have no idea how much cleaning-work is involved after feeding children pea soup or puréed spinach. So it’s  not unreasonable to assume he’s spent more time with the family.

There is no information about the movie project in France that Jack mentioned a while ago. Internet rumours claim that he’s actually been hidden away on the set of “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” instead and will have a cameo as a zombie-Norrington (Zombington?)  in the movie. I won’t deny that miracles can happen – after all, Damian O’Hare as Lt. Gillette will return as well (huzzah!) – but so far, there’s not one person, picture or source out there to confirm that anything about that rumour is true.

DEATH KNIGHT LOVE STORY is still in the works.

According to some users of Spotify, Jack Davenport is doing a voice-over for Alfa Romeo. That’s very nice, but I’ll stick to public transport.

If you’d like to enjoy Jack’s voice without added that special car-salesman-touch, I recommend you’ll listen to his latest audio book:

SUM: Tales from the Afterlife
by David Eagleman
(various episodes)

Or, if you prefer radio: BBC4 will repeat

THE YEAR OF SPAGHETTI
by Haruki Murakami
read by Jack Davenport

tomorrow, 0.30am.

As for new releases:

FLASH FORWARD is now available on DVD!

And if you live in the UK, here’s some excellent news for you:

SWINGTOWN IS COMING TO ITV1!

Starting on 7th September, 10.35pm, ITV1 will show all episodes of the series. Better late than never, eh?

What else… oh, yes. Jack Davenport and Michelle Gomez were guests at the wedding of Anna Paquin (whom I like a lot) and Steven Moyer (he worked with Jack in “Ultraviolet”). As far as I know, nobody was bitten. All the best to the newlyweds!

And last but not least – and not completely unrelated to weddings! – I have news from Ziko, the HeroRat sponsored by “Good Boy, Sparky!”:

“First, Mrs. Ziko and I are happy to announce the safe arrival of three new babies!  Can you imagine?! Triplets! (Truth be told, that’s pretty normal for us Giant African Pouched Rats, but its totally new to me!) The three of them are healthy and active little buggers always squirming around and begging for more milk!  Of course, we have already picked out their future professions: HeroRATs!”

Mrs. Ziko is a very busy new mum!

Three little HeroRattlings!
