James Nesbitt

1. – David Thewlis, The Omen, 2006. For his second successive re-make, Southern Irish director John Moore suddenly cooled on the Northern Irish TV star for the paparazzo Jennings…  whose photographs turn up so many hidden images that Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert said we could possibly reconstruct Blow-Up from them.

2. – Matt Smith, Doctor Who, TV, 2010.  The Beeb’s favourite Northern Irishman  (Murphy’s War, The Passion, Occupation, etc)  had been quite another  doctor  for Aunty – Jekyll, 2007.
