A few weeks old yet apparently breaking news: actor Jon Finch died on 28 December 2012.

Looking at Finch's biography, to the extent of course that Wikipedia or IMDB is reliable, it appears he missed a shot (by choice or accident) at being an A list star. He was reportedly a candidate to play James Bond, was offered John Hurt's role in Alien and an unspecified part in the Lester Three Musketeers. Looks like he did a lot of stage and TV work after the early '70s. At least he'll have Frenzy and Polanski's Macbeth to be remembered by. RIP

To say nothing of his BBC Shakespeare appearances. He was a great Bolingbroke/Heny IV, and I will always remember him that way.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.
