Found this when I googled "master and commander:" Something for next Christmas, perhaps?
I spent last night needlepointing and watching "Master and Commander." Nothing like a healthy dose of men in breeches for what ails ya. Still not operating at 100%, but at least I'm functional. I'm working at a diamond company today (less exciting than it sounds) and so far nothing important has happened--no international jewel thieves, no rogue traders inflating the market, nada.
So I've had lots of time to play "let's google Nicki's favourite actors" which now include Javier Bardem of "No Country for Old Men" fame, which I saw last week. Who is this Javier Bardem and why do I just want to throw Oscars (and other assorted naked things) at him? Damn. I would say he is the Spanish version of Clive Owen, but I'm not actually sure who would come out ahead in a smoulder-off.
Rrrraow. Rumors (okay, www.imdb.com) say that he might be playing Guido Contini in the movie version of Nine, to which I say, if there is a just and merciful God, these rumors will be true. Nine is one of my favourite musicals, and the music is incredible. To have Javier Bardem playing the preening Guido would just be icing on the cake. Delicious icing.
