Hi Eric,

Is a male bimbo a 'himbo'????

I also think Jude Law would be good as Darnley...
Timothy Dalton was quite good in Vanessa Redgrave's "Mary, Queen of Scots" back in the 70's...  He managed to be quite a little weasel, although not as smart as one!  More a rodent type.

Indeed. Jude play a similar role in Wilde playing the spoilt but pretty "Bosie". I wonder who will play Elizabeth I in that movie ?  ???

Yes, I think Jude Law would be a good choice.  Orlando Bloom also springs to mind.  I also liked Timothy Dalton in the Vanessa Redgrave film.

As for Elizabeth I, I'm not sure.  How about Catherine McCormack who played her briefly but rather well in a UK drama "Gunpowder, Treason and Plot"?

I'm wondering whether this film will actually get made.  I hope it does but fear it won't.  Scarlett's people might decide that what with the Boleyn Girl she risks overdosing on period dramas.  At the very least they may wait and see how the Boleyn Girl does before going ahead with MQoS.

Sorry, off topic Kim ( I've just been watching Victoria Beckham's adventures in LA  :P). Is that Bamburgh Castle on your new Avatar?

Maybe the Beckams can be sent to the block and do the world a favour. What a nauseous pair they are.

Can we move on from discussing the Beckhams and their various virtues/vices, please?  ;)

I read there was a really popular fiction book about Mary called "Marie Stuart". Both Ludwig II and Sophie Alencon were fans of that book. Was the movie based on that ?  ???
