Matt Lucas chats to us about Little Britain, Doctor Who, hair, fandom and his new memoir...

Matt Lucas was on his way to Yeovil when we caught up with him for a chat. He’s been promoting his excellent memoir Little Me, and he spared us half an hour for a natter that covered Doctor Who, Little Britain, his book, grief, mental health, hair, a Twix bar in the fridge and Les Mis.

The chat went like this…

It’s a really good book you’ve written, appreciating that sounds like insincere waffle, but it’s genuinely true. My question whenever anyone has written such a personal book is why, and why now?

Two things. One was I like to keep busy, and when I was signed up to do Doctor Who, I thought »

‘ER’ Actress Says George Clooney Helped ‘Blacklist’ Her

16 October 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Now things are starting to take a rather insane lean to the crazed side of what could have been a very revealing episode concerning Hollywood and the level of corruption and harassment that goes on throughout the entire industry. It’s only one voice thus far but in all honesty one voice is all that’s needed to speak up. The only problem is that anyone with a bone to pick and not necessarily a legitimate case could come from virtually anywhere. Cue ER actress Vanessa Marquez, who is at this point slamming George Clooney after he decided to denounce Harvey Weinstein,

There must be a shortage of actual twins in Hollywood, because actors increasingly have been taking on double duty when the role calls for it.

We're going to see it again this month in George Clooney's Suburbicon, which has Julianne Moore playing twin sisters. Suburbicon follows a seemingly normal family whose lives are rocked after a home invasion. Written by the Coen Brothers, this is going to be one wild family "drama". It's also got us thinking about more occasions when one actor took on the role of siblings. 

Here are our five favourite times one actor played twins:

Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct and sexual assault by dozens of women who have come forth over the last week, with allegations stretching back over three decades.

Hanks said he "never worked with Harvey." But when columnist Maureen Dowd asked the Forrest Gump actor why Hollywood spent decades protecting the producer despite knowing of his allegations, Hank responded with the following: "Well, that's a really good question and isn't it part and parcel to all of society somehow, that people in power get away with this?" he responded.

In an interview with her Murder on the Orient Express co-star, Olivia Colman, for Net-a-Porter's The Edit magazine, Pfeiffer admits that she's much more at ease when she's by herself than with a group of people.

Film Academy Responds to Harvey Weinstein Allegations: ‘Repugnant, Abhorrent’

11 October 2017 12:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein are “repugnant, abhorrent, and antithetical to the high standards of the Academy and the creative community it represents,” the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said in a statement Wednesday.

The organization, which annually hosts the Oscars ceremony, further announced a special meeting of the Academy’s Board of Governors set for Sunday, Oct. 14, “to discuss the allegations against Weinstein and any actions warranted by the Academy.”

Earlier on Wednesday, the British Academy suspended Weinstein “indefinitely,” noting that the organization “considers the reported alleged behavior completely unacceptable and incompatible with BAFTA’s values.”

Weinstein’s films have been a mainstay on the Oscar circuit, from “My Left Foot” in 1989 to “Lion” last year. He himself has been nominated twice, for best picture, including a win for “Shakespeare in Love” in 1999.

The New York Times broke the first story last Thursday, detailing “dozens »
