Regarding JRM, I don't know if I would say he's a bad actor but he's very miscast as Henry VIII. He's just so physically wrong for the part that I am unable to suspend my disbelief. TV Henry should be HEAVY. He should look something like the historial Henry. I don't believe for a minute that Showtime can't find a talented sexy actor who happens to be heavy and red-haired. It's like casting Amanda Seyfried as Cleopatra or Jackie Chan as Genghis. I mean, WHY, Showtime, WHY?!
