Best line of the day comes from an interview with Bill Nighy:
“There is nothing lonelier than being on stage in pantaloons.”
I didn’t see State of Play as I missed the first episode, and I feel like I discovered Nighy’s general delightfulness rather late. The first time I noticed him was in the wonderful Lawless Heart, in which he was hilarious in an understated English fashion. Anyway, pantaloons. Beware.
