Background chatter

By GERALD PEARY  |  February 6, 2007

Second-season highlights include Orlando Bloom obsessed by his great looks and by jealous hatred of Johnny Depp, and, wonderfully heretical, Daniel Radcliffe trying to shed Harry Potter by coming on to older chicks with a rubber dangling in his hand. (This was before he decided to bare all for Equus.)

The big change in season two: Andy has graduated to a BBC TV series starring himself. But don’t celebrate. He doesn’t. It’s a loathsome laugh-track farce in the Benny Hill mold. And there’s still no girlfriend for Andy, only hirsute sit-com groupies whom he describes as “looking like they came out of The Hills Have Eyes!”
