Watch Patrick Dempsey Go From Quirky '80s Star to Silver Fox in 27 Photos
Patrick Dempsey has been in the spotlight for more than 30 years now, but we still can't get over how handsome he is. The 50-year-old actor first stole hearts with his roles in movies like Can't Buy Me Love, Mobsters, and Loverboy, but it wasn't until he became Dr. Derek Shepherd on Grey's Anatomy that our hearts really started pumping. Aside from his impressive acting career, Patrick is a devoted family man; he's been married to his wife, Jillian Fink, since 1999 (they briefly split last year), and is father to kids Talula, Sullivan, and Darby. Cheers to many more years of being able to stare into those McDreamy eyes!

Groundhog Day: The Musical review

John Moore Jul 27, 2016

Tim Minchin and Matthew Warchus reunite - after their success with Matilda - for Groundhog Day: The Musical. Our review...

You have to admire Tim Minchin’s confidence. Groundhog Day represents his second foray into creating musical theatre from much-loved stories. His previous attempt, also alongside director Matthew Warchus, was a rollicking take on Roald Dahl’s Matilda. Pleasingly, that was the kind of musical that unites adults and children in joy and admiration. It's peppered with at least three stone-cold classic songs - in Naughty, When I Grow Up and Revolting Children - melded to great dollops of pantomime humour, and shot through with the ink black fairy tale tone the original book’s author was so famous for.

Of course, fans of Minchin’s grandiose musical comedy will know his contradictory tendencies for self-deprecation and appearances in alongside a 90-odd piece orchestra. Much of
