He was a great Doctor Who. I understand he had back surgery, fucking ouch. Anyone know what happened to his pilot, the one where he plays a lawyer who is so burnt out he basically advises all his clients to represent themselves? That sounded like a fun premise to me. Was it picked up, tabled, shelved, hung on the wall in a frame or what?

I disagree. British men, with the exception of nearly all their celebrities, are hot chowder. Also usually hung, uncut, and the little bit of disdain that they politely try to hide about the fact that you're American and they secretly hate you is also a cozy bit of time by the reality fireplace.

David Tennant's pilot, Rex is Not Your Lawyer got put on hold. There is a chance it could get picked up in the fall, but I wouldn't bet on it. Bummer because not only is David hot but the show actually sounded cool.

David Tennant is uncut, has a nice bush, is slender and is tall.
Other than that, he doesn't have much going for him.

I think he's adorable. I just watched a DVD extra from 2009 San Diego comicon where he kisses John Barrowman, I think I could have watched that again and again and again....hotness.

John Simm is only hot as the master. It's gotta be a power thing, I don't think he's at all attractive on his own TV show, but I'd fuck him senseless on Dr Who.
Or watch him and Tennant go at it. That'd be fun too.

Rex is still under consideration for a fall pick up. They have focus groups running for it this week and next week, and they would not be bothering to do that if it wasn't. The announcement will be made May 17
David is currently filming a new BBC1 drama series playing a man with three children coping with the death of his wife.

I would rather he kept working in the UK. He'd have better luck making British tv than American tv. Rex screams the type of program that will be cancelled on broadcast tv within the first few episodes; it might have a higher chance of surviving on a cable network like USA with its "characters welcome" theme but otherwise I wouldn't have high hopes for something that sounds as quirky as this show having a long run.

R30 I think Rex sounds kinda Ally McBeal-ish. Some people would say thats a bad thing, but the show was on for a number of years.
Aside from David, Rex has a great supporting cast... I love Jeffrey Tambor and Jane Curtin.

Apparently he tied the end because he was being photographed that night (it's from an unpublished press shoot for a play he did in the 90s, which a fan actually stole from the theatre's archive collection and put online), and I guess didn't want to be too revealing, or perhaps to prevent any possibility of erection, so that's perhaps not quite its natural state.

And tying a cock would be more likely to cause an erection, not prevent it.

It is tied -- look at the end. It's something actors do when they have nude scenes.

FYI the 'Rex' pilot was re-edited and a voice-over added, and the new pilot tested well. New scripts have been ordered. So it looks like David will be LA bound.

R32, I remember when Ally McBeal was on. Fox gave it a ton of promotion and prime timeslot and was enormously supportive of it its entire run. I'm not sure if I could see NBC doing that with Rex.
Has the new pilot leaked anywhere yet or is it too soon?

Is Fox much worse than NBC? They're more trigger-happy but otherwise no basic cable network is very patient with new shows these days. Either you're an immediate hit or you're shuffled off to a worse timeslot and cancelled.
Is Rex supposed to be traditional half-hour sitcom with laugh track?

Some guy's unofficial blog on David Tennant and his projects including Rex news.

Rex is an hour long dramedy, or as David describes it, "a drama with funny bits." No laugh track.

R43, get real. Uncut guys do not tie off their cocks. It would constrict the skin and cause an erection. None of the uncut guys I have seen do nude scenes (eg. Ewan McGregor, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Rupert Graves etc) do that.
It is not tied. It is just foreskin overhang.

David uses an American accent in Rex. He had a lot of accent training before shooting the pilot, though, so his American accent should be better, if anyone's heard it before.

I heard him reading something with an American accent and it wasn't sounded kinda bad, so its good to know he's getting accent training.
On another note, Hamlet is on Wednesday! I am so excited! I love Shakespeare and I love David and I love Patrick Stewart. The only obsession of mine missing is John Barrowman, but the man can't act so I can only imagine how he'd massacre Shakespeare! LOL!

His wife's currently heavily pregnant (her third kid), and their first anniversary was only a couple of weeks ago.

Of course this is the first time he's ever publicly acknowledged her existence and not freaked out when an interviewer mentioned her.

I've heard they have an arrangement. She gets very well paid and gets to be a SAHM with a bunch of nannies, and he gets to go off on location for months on end, have discreet relations on the side, and play daddy on weekends. Obviously works for them. He has his own separate home in London.
