Every so often an actor pops up while I’m watching something and I think, “Wait a minute, have we ever featured them on Frock Flicks?” and then I discover to my horror that NO WE HAVE NOT AND THIS AGGRESSION WILL NOT STAND, MAN.
That said, once I got to looking at Ian Holm’s IMDB page, I realized I was going to have to break this post into two parts because he was in SO MUCH HISTORICAL STUFF.
