Speaking of "older"....I just watched this (dodgy torrent) and I want to know if Jason was ever asked to wear a bowtie and/or use a French accent again ::rofl

Oh I really should watch Tuxedo - the caps look splendid.

It's a real crime that Jason isn't cast in more comedies - French accent or not, the man's hilarious.

For anyone who hasn't seen it, I've uploaded an abridged clip of the show which only includes JI's two scenes and the opening and closing credits. Sorry for the crappy quality.

If you love Stephen Fry and/or mockumentaries, it's worth the search for the entire series. :mrgreen:

Maria, thank you so much! I'd never seen this before! What fun!
The circle of British actors with whom Jason Isaacs has not worked grows very small indeed . . .

Well, according to http://www.jasonisaacsonline.com/page7.html, the most authoritative and complete listing of Jason Isaacs' work currently on the Interwebs (*cough*), it was indeed broadcast in 1988, preceding by a year his appearances in The Tall Guy and Lady& the Highwayman.

Wasn't he still in drama school in 1988?

Oh I'm so glad to have been able to contribute something after having received so much from this place. :D

It's just sad that the video quality is so poor that no-one can read the year at the end of the final credits.

Are you reading this Hat Trick productions? Who cares if it's no longer topical - surely Stephen Fry's popular enough for this to be released on DVD. ;-)
