Graham Norton savages Kevin Spacey
Kevin Spacey very recently attacked BBC TV talent shows like I'd Do Anything, claiming they were a "13-week promotion for a musical". It’s a fair point, leaving aside the anti-coach party tour snobbery behind it. Now the host of the Oliver talent show, Graham Norton, has made an equally fair point about not running talent shows that may have anything to do with Spacey. He says: “I think it would be very bad to do a reality show casting the lead of The Iceman Cometh, called 'We'd Bore Everyone'." This is a most inspired riposte and Norton is my hero of 2008 (thinking of those end-of-year lists, prematurely).
