I literally have no idea what undiscovered talents they could've seen in Caulfield ~ ~ ~
I'm sure his looks had something to do with it, but I found him very entertaining and convincing on The Colbys.
Convincing i'm not sure about. But entertaining and hot as f*ck - HELL YES!!!
He was perfect for the role because he could be whatever it was that was required for a scene or situation.
I can't imagine another actor playing Miles Colby.
It would take a man for all seasons. Marcus Gilbert? (Georgiou, Connie’s ex-toy boy lover aka Hutch Corrigan in another world, who’s not remotely related to George Costigan aka Arnie, Connie’s ex hubby.) What a chameleon.
Brings to mind something about David, Connie's fella. (Who's not to be confused with Miles's bird.) "This could kill someone my age, you know that? Where did you find him? In the little gingerbread house in the middle of the bad wood? Does he talk to the birds and the trees? And are you plucking up the courage to break the appalling truth about Santa Claus and the tooth-fairy to him?" ~ Bea, to Connie.
I just watched the first episode and it feels like I'm literally standing in the middle of the 80s because the style is so similar to the Dutch dramas we had back then.
I was going to say, the black actor reminds me of Sylvester ("do you wanna funk"), turns out he's a singer too.
Can't wait to see the battle between Connie and her bitch stepsister Nesta! Roll on ep. 3.
I know the actor who plays Connie's ex, Arnie. He's the nicest man. I played him the theme song from Connie once and asked him to guess what it was, but he didn't recognise it. He said that after Stephanie Beacham went to Hollywood, she would send him and his wife postcards telling them how rich she'd become.
I "recognized" him from one of my own music top ten nominations (movie themes)
Just finished episode 3. The dialogue is very literary which makes the scenes surrealistic melodramatic. No problem with that, but unfortunately I have no idea what they're talking about.
There was something with a sweater, the act of deceit as the ultimate token of whatever, a young fashion designer student being upset about something and Connie is working with/for-not working with/for whatever the name of the company is.
But the actors are very entertaining so I'm going to finish the series.
Some other names not previously mentioned: Burt Lancaster and Stewart Granger were offered Jason, Katharine Hepburn was offered Connie, Faye Dunaway and Susannah York were offered Sable and Elizabeth Ashley was offered a role but I don't remember if it was Sable of Frankie (originally named "Anthea").
Separate names with a comma.
