Happy birthday (or shall I say late) to you, Sam!

Miss MarsApr 4, 2013

"Ouch! What was that?" - Grasshopper, crying out as he got hit by a spider in "James and the Giant Peach".

Miss EarthMar 18, 2013

I am watching Fry & Callow here! Join me!

Miss VenusFeb 26, 2013

His birthday is June 19th, not the 24th! Go back to school!

Miss MercuryFeb 16, 2013

Hi there, Simon! Do you have any hobbies, man?

CowgirlDec 22, 2012

You and your roles are so nuts!

HotdogSep 7, 2011

Keep on working, man! Don't be shirking, man!

RabbitJul 20, 2011

Oh, gosh! He might be dancing, but I don't know that yet.

troubled20yearoldJul 11, 2011

One question, y'all: Do you think that he might be on "DWTS" at another season? If you don't know, hold that thought.

GooseJun 30, 2011

I can't say anything stupid like the singings or jokes, but I can say is he was wild! No offense.

BeeJun 27, 2011

He buzzed on with his roles, and "Amadeus" and "4 weddings and a Funeral" are 2 examples.

MouseJun 12, 2011

Look at his crazy costume as crazy, if you see. In "Amadeus", he has a clown jester suit and a pointy hat.
