Suggests another agenda TBH. He may be a bit out of sorts in this program, but that doesn't mean talentless. He is a very good actor and one of the UK's finest exports at the moment, and one who recognises he is English and doesn't hide in American - like many others.

A least he has the balls to make a fool of himself trying to feed his passion.

That's not to say that he is excellent in The Wire. Would have been better if he had been killed before Snot Boogie

Laughable. Have you seen the promo on Discovery for this? 'This is no act.' - you're bluddy right there! Yet another car/motorsport 'doco' that's only been produced because it has a'celebrity' presenting it. Oh for the days of an informative documentary presented by someone who knows something about the subject.

On the land speed record episode, he had to have a FIA rollcage fitted to the Audi, but then when the Audi wasn't quick enough he just borrowed a standard looking Bentley which didn't appear to have a roolcage. Did he really have to have a roll cage or is the Bentley FIA approved?

He ought to stick to acting then as this is absolutely woeful. He clearly cant do it and I can only hope ari vatenan was given a large bag of money to sit aside him......
