jonFeb 14, 2015

Excellent actor. I love Sherlock. Wish I had a voice like his.

yunshanNov 27, 2014

He should really win an Oscar

Just in time!Nov 22, 2014

WOW! Really set on winning that Oscar, huh?? Good on good old sav.vy Harvey & Co. for getting the engagement news amidst the Oscar-race! Now the lear.ned Academy memb.ers are free to marvel at Benny's portrayal of a famous hom.ose.xual secure in the knowledge that he himself is as straight as engaged/married to a woman man can get. Or are they? Hope everyone gets my meaning correctly.
