Even Christian Grey isn't perfect. Jamie Dornan recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show to discuss his highly anticipated film, Fifty Shades of Grey, and he ended up divulging his bizarre quirk. Apparently, Dornan never learned how to walk properly, and when he first began filming the TV series The Fall, the director called out his tiptoe style, asking if he was doing it to get into character. Clearly, Dornan had to find a new walk, but the one he demonstrates here is not an improvement. Watch from the beginning for a bonus clip of Aaron Paul's The Price Is Right past, or just skip to 2:48, when Dornan's part begins. »

Will Fifty Shades of Grey change Jamie Dornan's life? "I have no idea," the handsome Hollywood hunk said on The Graham Norton Show. (Yes, Jamie. The answer is yes.) The man chosen to portray Christian Grey from the popular erotica trilogy stopped by the BBC America series to talk all things Fifty, including what he thinks the aftermath will be once the adaptation hits theaters on Valentine's Day next year. "I mean, look, we're in a really powerful position that 90-plus million people have read the book so if like a third—I mean, a hundredth of those people—that's successful if they go see the film," he said. "It's a nice position to be in, but I have no idea what »
Jamie Dornan's role in Fifty Shades of Grey taught him a very important life lesson. And we're not talking about those scenes. The 31-year-old stopped by The Graham Norton Show and dished about what he learned when he was filming the erotic flick. "In terms of changing your life, it did change your life," Graham Norton said to the handsome thesp. "It did change your life. Physically." "Yes it did, I know what you mean, yes," the Northern Irish actor replied, as the audience laughed. "It isn't as creepy as it sounds," the late-night host added. Then it was explanation time for Dornan. "So basically, I've always had a »

The corporation cannot expect to maintain its £3.5bn a year from the licence fee unless it collaborates with other leading players
BBC charter renewal is a sort of World Cup for the commentariat – it happens at regular intervals, is a festival of hot air for supporters and opposition alike, and comes to a sudden finale. Notwithstanding that, it's entirely healthy for public funding to be subject to the scrutiny it now is. And as digital technology continues to disrupt our heritage media, it's right that the purposes of the BBC should be challenged, refreshed and, where necessary, redefined.
The BBC represents a massive market and social intervention. Historically this has been justified by the delivery of three things: trusted and reliable news and information, substantial output of original programming and a sustained investment in creative talent. In this way the BBC has made a critical democratic, cultural and economic contribution »

Based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt, The Irishman has been a movie lovers dream ever since it was announced a couple of years ago, bringing director Martin Scorcese together with Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci to tell the true life tale of Frank Sheeran, an alledged assassin for the Italian Mob whose wild claims include that he murdered Jimmy Hoffa and that the assassination of JFK was a mob hit. While nothing about the project is concrete, De Niro, who is reportedly playing Sheeran, has been quite vocal about it, letting slip details about it a few months back on The Graham Norton Show. In a recent interview with art publication Flatt, the actor talked about the project yet again, saying, "We have been trying to do the film for the last few years, and I think we will do it »

In Martin Scorsese's The Wolf Of Wall Street there's a scene where Matthew McConaughey and Leonardo DiCaprio have lunch together, which results in some rather odd behavior. No, I'm not talking about the advise to from McConaughey to jerk off, snort coke, and drink til you drop, but rather his strange chest thump/humming, which came out of nowhere. It just seemed like one of those idiosyncratic moments upon first viewing, but McConaughey explains the behavior while on The Graham Norton Show, »

There are a lot of outrageous antics filling the 180 minutes of Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. Little people clad in velcro are hurled at targets. Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill have misadventures with Quaaludes and cocaine. A beautiful blond has her head shaved before a bunch of blood-thirsty stock brokers. But before all this, there's Jordan Belfort's entry into the insanity of Wall Street, bestowed by an especially sleazy suit played by Matthew McConaughey. As Mark Hanna, McConaughey introduces the titular Wolf to the world of insane wealth, loose morals, and hard drugs. He also introduces him to the power of literal chest-thumping and chanting. It's an odd but unforgettable moment that McConaughey took the time to demystify in the clip up top. On a recent episode of The Graham Norton Show, the Academy Award-nominated McConaughey dropped by to talk Wolf of Wall Street--and presumably Dallas Buyers Club. »

The 44-year-old actor recently stopped by The Graham Norton Show where talk quickly turned to his hot Magic Mike role. McConaughey recalled getting used to wearing nothing but a skimpy thong on set.
