Do you ever have those moment where you are watching a film and have a REVELATION when you realise where you have seen that actor before???

Ta da! Enter Tobias Menzies – as Mr Elliot in Persuasion, and as Villiers (M’s assistant) in Casino Royale.

I also love that I feel like I am the first person to ever make this connection. Perhaps even Tobias himself was not aware of it…

p.s. Just to be clear, I think he looks much better without the sideburns. Although he’s a little less wimpy in Persuasion, so maybe it’s the effect of having sideburns.
