    That’s some pretty dodgy dancing by Mr. Feldman right there. And the Sir Ian clip gets me everytime. It’s definitely my favourite moment from “Extras”. The second fave would have to be the Patrick Stewart clip, brilliant!

      The Sir Ian scene is definitely my favourite too! Although, Patrick Stewart is an absolute classic too – It was so odd to see him portray a character of that kind!

    Nah, my favourite Extras moment is “Little Fat Man With the Pug-Nosed Face” from David Bowie.

    And, wow, some of these are vintage. Niiice.

      I’d have to put the David Bowie scene in fourth place after Ian, Patrick and Winslet.

      A South Park reference. Niiice.

    Dustin Hoffman gets me every single time. I love that man/woman.

      I’m quite fond of the old Hoffmann too. And with Bill Murray? It’s a genius combination.

    I love that Sir Ian McKellen clip. Priceless. 🙂

      How did I know what to say? They had my lines written down on a script. How did I know where to stand? People showed me.

    I love the Bobby D audition for Sonny. So fun and really an interesting glimpse on what another genius interpreting something on his own looks like.

      And he looks so young in that footage! It’s amazing to see, in that short clip, the natural talent he had from the beginning.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog! As for Little Dorrit – well, it’s dense of course, but then it’s Dickens. I am quite liking the characters, and I’m not that far into it yet so I’m hoping the plot will pick up as I read some more. I’ve seen the BBC adaptation already and I liked it (that’s why I decided to try the book), but I’m not sure yet how closely it actually sticks to the original storyline.

      Another notoriously wandering adaptation!

      An adaptation I thought worked quite well was the version of Jane Eyre with Toby Stephens – If you haven’t seen it already, it’s definitely worth a look. It managed to capture the darkness of the story and Stephens did a great job as Rochester. Ruth Wilson was probably the most likeable and accurate TV Jane Eyre so far – Independent, but not completely hardened. It’ll be interesting to see if Fassbender and co do the book justice in the upcoming film.

        I have seen the version of Jane Eyre with Toby Stephens, and thought it was quite a fresh interpretation of the role (although I think my favorite Rochester at this point remains Timothy Dalton). Also it was interesting the way they showed some of the scenes from Rochester’s memories of the West Indies – a bit of poetic license to make it come alive, but not so much that it started straying significantly from the book! I wasn’t aware that another version of Jane Eyre was in production – thanks for the head’s-up!

        I agree – Dalton and the likes are on a whole different level. Although, Stephens’ is slowly but surely nearing that level. I loved those West Indies scenes too! It contrasted so well with the greyness of England in that particular production. This is a still from Mia Wasikowska’s Jane Eyre: http://www.aceshowbiz.com/images/still/jane_eyre01.jpg

        The full cast is available on IMDb – I love their choice of Judi Dench as Mrs Fairfax! There are a few Irish actors sprinkled through the cast, which is great 🙂
