Timothy Spall

  1. Duncan Bell, Troubles, TV, 1988.     A  week’s strike forced many cast  changes, such as Spall having to pass Foster-Smith to Bell.  
  2. John Rhys-Davies,   The Lord of the Rings trilogy, 2001-03.
  3. Toby Jones, The Girl, TV, 2012.    Hitchcock’s back in business!With two films headlinedby UK actors in bad impressions and fat suits. This is the second one (via BBC/HBO, shot in Cape Town!) with Toby Jones’ Hitchcock going off half-cock for Tippi Hedren (Sienna Miller) during Marnie and The Birds. Initial plan was better: Timothy Spall slavering over January Jones. But as Imelda Staunton as his wife, Alma, told Hitch: “The day she ever dropsher knickers you’ll run a mile.”
