Tom Weston-Jones leads BBC America’s “Copper”

The folks at BBC America have a solid reputation for delivering some of the best in British comedy and drama. It’s taken them a while to finally get into the original drama game, but from the looks of it, they’re starting off on the right foot.

Channel Guide interviews Leif Garrett!

  In the interest of full disclosure, I was one of the approximately 40 bazillion teenage girls who plastered their bedroom walls with posters of Leif Garrett throughout the ’70s and ’80s. In fact, I had it so bad for the sleepy-eyed, flaxen-haired heartthrob that my best bud and I would spend hours throwing suction-tip darts at the images and smooching whichever one we hit. So when I finally scored an interview with Garrett, Channel Guide‘s copy chief, Jill, encouraged me not to share that particular story — or as she sagely put it, “Don’t lead with the crazy.” I […]
