I have heard Brand is partly responsible for making those hideous skin tight jeans with the crotch fallen down fashionable.

That's true, shame on me, I love Muppets; Grover is a genius compared to Brand...

I forgot to watch it- was playing my Piano! I hardly watch TV- didn't have one for years and now I'm in a house with shared lounge with TV still don't watch it!
Must remember next week- would like to see Ben in this.

New interview with Bright Star actor Ben Whishaw to promote Richard II on TV. He briefly mentions his identification with Keats:
