Roger Allam, who could be replaced by Tim Curry in almost anything he's in. I really like him in that, though.
Can someone please write a screenplay about Christopher Hitchens before Roger Allam is too old to play him?
I was stunned when i looked it up and found out that it was Roger Allam and not actually Tim Curry
There is, I think, nothing better on television than the scenes he shares with Roger Allam in Endeavour.
Was chatting to a friend about this recently, only one that's been okay recently was the airline one with Roger Allam.
As a commenter notes, this is incredibly unkind to Roger Allam
maybe just the first and last fifteen minutes, then. And anything involving the wonderful and criminally underused Roger Allam.
I just want Philip Quast and Roger Allam to read fairy tales to my kids.

Roger Allam one of the all time great Falstaffs I think. But I did enjoy this one a lot - think it might have matured a bit.
I was less whelmed when saw it at Stratford. Ashley McGuire & Roger Allam still 'my' Falstaffs.

Shakespeare's Globe on Screen presents THE TEMPEST, screening this Tuesday, 10/28 at 7:00pm! Tickets: Duke of Milan (Roger Allam), usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island. He is comforted by his daughter Miranda (Jessie Buckley) and served by his spirit Ariel (Colin Morgan) and the deformed slave Caliban (James Garnon). When Prospero raises a storm to wreck this perfidious brother and his confederates on the island, his long contemplated revenge at last seems within reach. Imbued with a spirit of magic and the supernatural, The Tempest, recorded live on stage earlier in 2014, is Shakespeare's late great masterpiece of forgiveness, generosity and enlightenment. Director Jeremy Herrin's previous work for Shakespeare's Globe includes 2011's much loved Much Ado About Nothing. Roger Allam won the Olivier Award for best actor for his role as Falstaff in Henry IV Parts 1 & 2 at the Globe in 2010. Colin Morgan is best known for playing Merlin in the long running BBC series "Merl ...

Roger Allam! The man with the best voice in the world!

Roger Allam, and on a stage before me, bouncing off each other - yep, that's what good days are made of.
highly entertaining with wonderful Roger Allam surely one of our greatest actors
Such a waste of Roger Allam's voice :(
Sometimes, out of nowhere, I remember my utterly filthy Roger Allam sex dream and grin like a South Park Canadian for hours.
Really enjoyed Seminar . Roger Allam and the rest of the cast were first class.
Also, she doesn't know who Roger Allam is, which is pitifully sad for her.
So, E5 was on a different level to other episodes AND got Roger Allam/Supermac!
Roger Allam's voice is pure sex, but even I will not buy the Jeffrey Archer audiobooks he narrates. Surprisingly, I have some standards.

Roger Allam has the most glorious voice on the planet
Yesterday Roger Allam narrated wonderful revival of "Oh! What a Lovely War". Available on
Also in cinemas: ‘The Book Thief’ (Brian Percival; USA/Germany) *** I saw this towards the end of last year when I was in New York and while it really isn’t anything particularly wonderful, I seem to remember leaving the cinema fairly entertained. Director Percival has worked on 'Downton Abbey' and this is a comfortable, Sunday evening viewing, film equivalent. It has some novelty though: you don’t often get second World War films about the German civilians living through the conflict, so that’s a bit different; but the most striking aspect is that it’s narrated by Death himself (Roger Allam, excellent), whose dulcet tones give the story a sense of dignity it might not deserve. Sophie Nélisse is very good in the lead and Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson are their usual reliable selves as her foster parents. The main problem here is an uncertainty of tone. As the main character is an adolescent girl, it might have resonated with a teen audience were they not too busy watching and re-watching vam ...
cumberbatchweb: Benedict Cumberbatch, Roger Allam & cast at the rec 1/10
MT Benedict Cumberbatch and Roger Allam share a moment after the final show of John Finnemore's Cabin Pressure.
I read the first book of "A Song of Ice and Fire" and didn't like it. Don't take me wrong, it's fairly well written. The very problem is - while I have a very soft spot for villainy, for intrigue, for a game of thrones well played - there is nobody to like. There's no character I'd care for, with the exception of Eddard Stark, who had "Doom" written on his forehead right at the beginning of the novel. He's not a player, though, but a honorable man, and therefore lost. What have we got amongst those left? Sadistic madmen. Mad women driven by grief and hate. Opportunistic traitors galore. Boring idealists. People I don't care to love, and people I don't love to hate. Just people I don't care for. Having now seen the first season of HBO's GAME OF THRONES changed little, if anything, about my impression from the book, although I enjoyed seeing familiar faces (sometimes just in cameos) like Sir John Standing (lying down), Roger Allam, Julian Glover, Charles Dance, and Peter Vaughan. Having said this, there ar ...

Had an marathon today. Eps after the pilot were much better, Roger Allam is sublime, really. Excellent detective drama!
Is there anything Roger Allam isn't it?
When is the new Endeavour? That serial is easier for me. Shaun Evans reminds me of Shane which is comforting and it has Roger Allam.
Really weird hearing Roger Allam stutter, used to him being smooth and sarky as Douglas.
Why can't I find a clip of Roger Allam doing that clip from Copenhagen at National Theatre's 50 years... I'm desperate to see it again...
John Finnemore uses Cumberbatch more interestingly in his relationship with Roger Allam in radio’s “Cabin Pressure”.
Why did waste FANTASTIC actor Roger Allam as Illyrio Mopatis in the first few episodes?

This makes sense. Roger Allam is pretty great.
Do you know how many otters Benedict managed to imagine in an airplane? Well him, John Finnemore, and Roger Allam
New post: Thanks to the Globe's DVD series (and to my uncle's Christmas generosity) I've finally been able to admire the 2010 production of Henry IV, dominated by Roger Allam's brilliant Falstaff. In typical Globe style it's full of humour and bawdy comedy and makes a fascinating counterpoint to the Hollow Crown's more serious version. Very highly recommended - and if you managed to see this live, please allow me to tell you how utterly jealous I am of you.
Just seen Roger Allam (spotted by Shame I haven't got my lemon with me.
New post: Delighted by the DVD of the Globe's excellent 2010 Henry IV - featuring a sublime Falstaff from Roger Allam.

Also, just realised that one of the actors was Roger Allam who played Prospero in 'The Tempest', which I saw this summer. Nice.
There's a TV travel ad with Roger Allam's voice asking "Spain or Turkey? SPAIN OR TURKEY?" Were those the MJN Xmas in-flight meal options?
And Roger Allam and Stephen Fry! Easily best comic book adaptation ever. And I don't like comics turned movies.
whilst They're doing a crossover they should have roger allam in to make it a three-way.
Just got a bit overexcited hearing Roger Allam's dulcet tones on an advert. He could sell me anything.
Am hoping to get the brilliant British actor Roger Allam to play Hitchens. He's a dead ringer, no pun intended.
Sounds like it could be Roger Allam
Am I a bad Cumberbabe if I'm a little sad Roger Allam lost the Best Actor award to Benedict, both having been nominated for their work in Parade's End? I love Ben, but I also like Roger. I mean, a lot. (and OMGZ it's Captain Martin Crieff and First Officer Douglas Richardson. I swear. Whenever I watch Parade's End I can't help but giggle whenever these two open their mouths because when I forget the age difference I ship Martin/Douglas to no end. And also Papa Cumberbatch aka Timothy Carlton was in it.)
Roger Allam IS a detective in something (actually he's been one three times)
I want to say Cabin Pressure because Benedict Cumberbatch is Sherlock and because Roger Allam should be a detective in something
Roger Allam as a camp, moustached RAF officer in Foyle's War! Yes!
Roger Allam > Russell Crowe (thats the mathematical symbol for 'greater than' not an arrow)
I don't care. I just had a chat with Roger Allam.
