OK, I should probably explain. I've long harboured a desire to have tea and cake with certain famous people and by desire, I don't mean anything other than wouldn't it be nice to sit and have a good old natter over a pot of tea and a large slice of moist Victoria sponge filled with cream and jam.
Ben Whishaw has long been on the list, indeed the list probably started because of him. Not least because I'd love to have a good old natter over a cuppa but also because he looks like a man in need of a good slice of cake. Incidentally, I recently discovered an interview from around the time of his Hamlet in which Trevor Nunn said all the women of the cast were obsessed with his food intake and continually asked him what he'd eaten.
Mackenzie Crook is a recent addition for similar reasons because, as I think I commented in my The Aliens review, he makes Mr Whishaw look fat.
But now there is Martin Freeman who easily makes it onto the list following last night's performance and comic quips at the Clybourne post-show Q&A. He is a funny man and it was great to see him making the jokes rather laughing at him in character.
Much of what he said that was funny was a case of 'you had to be there' but trust me, he would be an entertaining tea-time guest.
