Isn't he awesome? I love this anecdote Stephen Fry told about him on Q.I.:
There is a very good story, though, about Peter O'Toole, who was once getting drunk in his Celtic hell-raiser days in a pub in London, and, uh, they were throwing out time at lunchtime, and he said, "Let's go and see a play." And, at one point, O'Toole nudged his friend and said, "This is brilliant. This is the bit where I come on. Oh, bollocks!"
I really hope he's doing a commentary or something for the DVD.
i'm reading stephen fry's paperweight right now but i wonder if i made the wrong choice from his writing . . . i feel rather lost in it.
