    Just pointing out that your picture of Ben Barnes is not Ben Barnes.
    It’s his co-star from Killing Bono, Robert Sheehan, who is also in the E4 series Misfits.

    When is Olivia going to leave House already? I understand loyalty, but her film career is exploding. I’d rather see her in movies.
