08:23 pm - The Devil's Whore
I'm looking forward to seeing John Simm in the new Civil War drama The Devil's Whore (Channel 4 Weds).

TV Scoop
His role as morally corrupt mercenary Edward Sexby in The Devil's Whore is a little bit of a departure for him, featuring as he does as something of a brooding man of few words. ... as The Master in Doctor Who, he was all manic tapping and maloevolent energy. In The Devil's Whore he's scarred, silent and doesn't really give a monkey's about anyone. He's great, really great.


JS in the Radio Times:
"When I started acting there was a list of parts I wanted to play - cowboy, knight, vampire, all those things. So... when I was offered the part of a swashbuckling hero with a scar and a metal hand, riding on horseback, rescuing the heroine and living feral in a wood, I thought, 'Yes! I've never starred in a Western and this maybe the nearest I come. Sexby is like Clint Eastwood!".


Sexby?

Doesn't look like they'll be Bringing Sexby Back though.

Would you happen to know if it's going to be broadcast in the US? They might figure we're too dumb, ignorant, and insular to watch a show about somebody else's history.

I don't know - it looks slightly like it might be made with half an eye on global sales.

Sexby?

It sounds rather like a parody, doesn't it?

Really. Also, with a metal hand he sounds a bit like the Travis of the 17th century

He was a real person, so you can make your own mind up on the basis of that. :)

I'm looking forward to this, too - Dominic West from The Wire is also in it.

I think, like 'Swearengen', they wouldn't dare except that real life trumped credibility
