Lol! Too funny!

It's good to see you posting again - it's been a while. : )

So Hugh Bonneville was MP99! I saw him recently in Daniel Deronda and I kept trying to think where I had seen his face before! Now I know. . . well well, Mr. Rushworth. . . he looks really different in Daniel Deronda, still I'm surprised I didn't recognise him.

Is "9" the magic number? Because Jodhi May was in a film with Colin Firth which would have given you a shorter degree of separation if it is a circular thing. Jodhi May was in The Turn of the Screw with Colin Firth.

I forgot that Colin Firth was in The Turn of the Screw, but I guess I wouldn't have mentioned that movie anyway as I find it so dark and ugly and probably wouldn't suggest it to others though the subject manner was handled fairly well.

Loved Hugh Bonneville as Rushworth, it was such a different role after seeing him in Daniel Deronda!

This post just goes to show that IMDb is one of my favorite sites! It's good to be posting again, my time is very limited recently.
