One of my colleagues works with a computer system named Lucius. I found this out when she mentioned it by name...because it was being a right bastard.
In other news: I had my mind blown this morning by an actor connection I'd never made, and another one I didn't even know about.
Ever since I watched s1 of Sherlock, whenever someone mentioned Sebastian Wilkes actor Bertie Carvel, I would think, "I've heard of him...what else have I seen him in?" and click over to his IMDb page only to not really recognize things--at least not at the level that I seemed to know him. But this morning I was lying in bed, delaying getting up and half-asleep and reading Twitter, and I saw a tweet mentioning Bertie Carvel without
mentioning Sherlock. The immediate association I made in my head was to the actor who played Leo Frank in the great Donmar Warehouse version of the musical Parade:
(Song starts at 1:18. BTW, seriously, if you like modern musicals--especially Jason Robert Brown ones--seek this recording out. They recorded all the dialogue as well as the songs, so you can really get the plot, and the music is great.)
But see, in my head, that character looks the same way he did when Brent Carver played him on Broadway--very slight, kind of short. So I hadn't connected it to well-built, tall Bertie Carvel at all, until I saw his name without the Seb Wilkes context. So that blew my mind a bit, and I kind of didn't believe it--was I misremembering the name? It's pretty similar to Brent Carver, anyway, so maybe I'm just mixing it up. So I looked up the cast and--
HOLY FUCK LUCILLE IS PLAYED BY LARA PULVER
(song starts around 1:50 btw)
Leo and Lucille are the two main roles, by the way.
SO ANYWAY MY MIND IS KIND OF BLOWN RIGHT NOW THEY ARE BOTH SO GOOD. I'VE HAD THIS RECORDING FOR FIVE YEARS AND NEVER REALIZED.
