The Most Boring Story In The World
Rufus Sewell insists he's really a "character" actor at heart. Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, George Clooney -- you name it, every famous actor has insisted that really all they want to be are character actors. Really, this is the most trite angle imaginable. I'd love to hear some movie star say hell no, they're a MOVIE STAR and you can keep all the shlubby sidekick roles for Paul Giamatti, thank you very much. The joke is on Sewell, actually -- he's never been enough of a box office draw that he needs to fight off the idea that he's a leading man anyway.
