Brian Cox unloads on a bunch of famous actors


My favorite bit:

Steven Seagal is as ludicrous in real life as he appears on screen. He radiates a studied serenity, as though hes on a higher plane to the rest of us, and while hes certainly on a different plane, no doubt about that, its probably not a higher one.

Can’t imagine what he wrote about Bowie. Probably better he didn’t write anything as Bowie is an icon.
Im here only on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays. Thats why Im here now.

If you're a talented character actor, and have had to deal with "movie stars" in the lead, I imagine it might be a sore spot.

Not really news, is it? Bloke who comes across as a spaced out prick, is a spaced out prick. A friend of mine met him at a fan tent at a world cup. Said he was a laugh, but absolutely hammered.

Seen Cox on Question Time in the UK a few times. He seems considered but rarely said anything with which I agreed or didn't feel was aimed at pleasing the audience.
5-time MoFo Award winner.

wow. i guess I'll have to purchase this book now for all the juicy details. Yummy.

I also like that Steven Segal was included with that group above

There are a couple of interesting you tube videos on this subject. One of them is devoted to a bunch of stars who think Chevy Chase is a jerk.

Another one I wouldn't think was news. I don't think I've ever seen CC and not thought that.
