Wasn't sure on where to post this.    Very disappointed A single man isn't mentioned.

Colin Firth made CBE in Queen's Birthday Honours List


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-13731039


Colin Firth, already enjoying an Oscar-winning year, has been appointed a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours.

The actor, who won an Oscar for playing King George VI in the King's Speech, was recognised for services to drama.

It comes 16 years after he achieved heart-throb status as Jane Austen's brooding hero, Mr Darcy, in the BBC TV adaptation of Pride And Prejudice.

His other films include Bridget Jones's Diary, Fever Pitch and the Abba-themed movie musical Mamma Mia.

Firth also picked up a Bafta and numerous other awards for portraying the Queen's father in the King's Speech. The monarch herself may now present him with a CBE medal at a future Buckingham Palace investiture.

I don't even remember what "Fever Pitch" was about.  Yes, "A Single Man" was arguably his best performance ever and should never be left out of any account of Colin Firth's career.  >:(

Isn't that the guy who played the hustler in the movie? I wasn't quite sure if he really was a hustler, he was so smooth and nice about it. Or am I just being a pollyanna as usual?

Yes, that's Jon Kortajarena.  As for his profession, he was an out-of-work actor, who just happened to be for rent.

Looks like he probably gave value.

Enjoyed re-reading this thread.  Such a special film.

Sadly, Jon Kortajarena hasn't been in any other films; just some TV.

However, Nicholas Hoult has had a good year, with Warm Bodies and Jack the Giant Slayer.

A little fashion trivia:  Jon used to be the Tom Ford eyewear model, but has been replaced by...Nicholas!

Dumb move, Tom.  8)
