Well, he did actually graduate in Law from Glasgow university but was fired one week before the end of his post-qualification training that would have allowed him to practice. Personally, I'd rather kid-on putting shiv in some nuts nutter - probably pays more, shorter hours and longer holidays.He does alright for a failed porridge wog solicitor...........he always seems to stick a knife into someones skull.

Seen. Good call.
we watched the Wave and the Quake having googled ‘movies like the day after tomorrow’ and gave them a go. I’m sick to death of cycling through the same American produced shit - I’ve seen them all twenty times before.
we are working our way through the top 20 Norwegian films and the four we have watched so far have been superb. Well made, well acted and the subtitles don’t bother us at all. The films have been very easy to follow.
We’ll probably move onto other countries after we’ve done the Norwegian films. It’s making a nice change
Remember that the Germans appropriated Czech French Dutch Polish and of course Belgium weapons for redistributionBattle of the Last Panzer. One of those 1960 "spaghetti western" war films made by Italians and shot in arid, sunny Italy/Spain. A spotters paradise - the Tigers are M47 Pattons, the German infantry appears to be armed largely with the R1 or other FAL variant/derivative, the German waffenfarbe and shoulderboards are not WWII era, or even German, the US soldiers appear to be wearing Fallschirmjager or post-war Italian helmets, the chevrons and rockers on the American sergeants are not US pattern, the German TCs sidearm is not the expected P38 or Luger and doesn't look like anything in the German inventory - ditto the feldwebels MP40; it goes on and on. The dubbing isn't bad, though.
The plot and direction is typical of the genre, though, so if you're a fan of spaghetti flicks crack on. Find it on the MGM channel on Prime (I'm using the seven day free trial).
Edited to add: actually, the FAL-looking things, when I paused it to get a decent look, look more like CETME 58s. A bit of research reveals that a lot of the personal weapons seem to be post-war Spanish or Italian designs, actually.
I would put his appearance down to his mum..... A lovely woman who leads (or did) his fan club.I have seen him in a couple of the US late night talk shows he explained his arrival in acting during one interview - he lives in Malibu. As you say he was binned during his last week of his articles whilst at a London firm of solicitors, he admitted it was down to his like of drink and partying - apparently turning up for work still shit-faced is not the done thing.
One thing I noticed is that unlike American actors who turn up looking like a refugee from either a hippy, biker, or pimps convention, he still looked like a solicitor wearing a suit suitable for the City. Actually, most of the British actors tend to look respectable, when interviewed, compared to their American counterparts.
