I'm short on time to put together a Favourite Things Friday post, since I have to be back to work in a couple minutes, but I do want to play along this week. I was thinking about the subject last night before bed (*snort*) and whaddaya know, my favorite Mr. Darcy, Matthew Macfadyen popped into my head. Yes, he'll do quite nicely, thank you!
I loved him in Pride & Prejudice.
I have since rented movies I otherwise might not have simply because he's been in them. (Don't you do that?) One that was a total departure from his buttoned up, corset movie character was Daniel in "Death at a Funeral." This is the 2007 version, not the new one (which I haven't seen) starring Chris Rock. Laughed my butt off! Rent it sometime.
He also played a great character in the BBC mini-series, "Little Dorrit," which I caught on PBS earlier this year. Another wonderful role.
I so wanted to post the YouTube of my favorite scene in Pride & Prejudice, the one that melts me to goo every time I see it, but it's one of those that is not able to be embedded. But here is the link. (Click the word "link.") Treat yourself!
