Do I really look like Michael Sheen?

Image of Do I really look like Michael Sheen?


Poor him if I do - but that's the suggestion on Twitter for who would play me in 'Fake or Fortune - The Movie'. He's one of my favourite actors, so that's cool with me. (Tho' Charlie Sheen might be cooler...) Hugh Grant is apparently to be Philip, and Kate Beckinsale will be Fiona.

The final programme in the series drew 3.7m viewers, a little down on the first three programmes. 'The World's Most Expensive Paintings', which was also on BBC1 last night (and in the better slot of 9pm), got 2.8m.

I'm also vain enough to report that another Tweeter (a BBC producer natch) has kindly said I should have my own series! Given my forthcoming encounter with a Spitfire, I can see the opening sequence now:

'Opening Scene: Dr Whatsisname [as they also call me on Twitter] bids for a lost Holbein of Henry VIII in a minor German auction. The hammer goes down at 42,000 Euros. Cut to waiting Spitfire. The Dr takes off, waving the Holbein. He shouts 'Achtung Hans!' wildly. Cue title sequence/Music from 'Battle of Britain'.'
