Got to love James Purefoy. After making quite an impression on me with his cameo role in A Knight's Tale, the British actor made an even bigger impression with his enormous er, rod on the set of Rome. Seriously, some prosthetics must have been involved.
I even enjoyed his character Rawdon in Vanity Fair, but almost all of my affection goes towards his role as Mark Antony on the HBO series.
That being said, James Purefoy is back again to star in Blue Star Entertainment's I Hate Valentine's Day.
James Purefoy for I Hate Valentine's Day
Written by Nick Hurran and co-starring Nia Vardalos, I Hate Valentine's Day follows a commitment-phobic woman who closely adheres to a set of dating rules but finds them put to the test when she falls for a Brit who dumps her.
"He's mischievous and dirty on the phone, so he's a joy to write for," Vardalos said about Purefoy. "The part was written for an American guy in mind, but I'm now revamping the script to make it about a British guy who doesn't understand the ways of American women."
Though one could only pray that some day HBO agrees to do more seasons of Rome (or perhaps a similar series), it is sad to know that Mark Antony will not be returning after a small incident with a blade - to say the least.
