    I think he looks really good here.

    Slavery supporter. Evil.

    • Kaye1 says:

      I feel exactly the same way. I will never see another one of his movies again. I used to think of him as a victim of Scientology, but the truth has come out. He is a bad person who actively works to hurt vulnerable people. His facade sickens me.

    Judging by the lack of moobs I’m going to guess that Tiny Tommy’s Mum finally took him shopping for a training bra.

    • duncecap says:

      I can still kinda see the moobs. Can’t not see them now.

    • T.Fanty says:

      Amelia, you are making me very happy today. Please carry on.

      • Amelia says:

        As you wish – there is a certain man that goes by the name of Cumberbatch who is headed your way this merry afternoon under strict instruction to read aloud whatever piece of literature you put before him.
        Be gentle with him though, the poor dear is a bit knackered from . . . archiving. Ahem.
        Now, there’s a suit of armour kicking about somewhere that I need to steal.
        I can sense Eve’s stabbiness over the broadband . . .

      • T.Fanty says:

        Excellent. I’ve written something that is both deeply p0rnographic, yet adheres to the principles of iambic pentameter. He will love it. Then it’s off to the train station…

      • T.Fanty says:

        Hey @Amelia: have you seen Warsaw Spies (with Tennant)? It’s just been made available on iTunes and I wondered if it was any good..

      • Amelia says:

        Bloody hell, Eve, either you’ve got Cumberbatch on Google alerts or you’ve got a 6th sense for sexy aliens.
        I’m guessing it’s the latter.
        I happened to check C/B when I had a spare moment inbetween tapestry romps and you could see Cumby get a bit perky when your posts cropped up.
        Do you know if Star Trek ID is doing a South American tour? Because I think it’s only fair to warn him if he’s going to be staying in Brazil for an extended period of time. The poor bloke’s ever so pale, he’s going to need to buy stock in sun block.

      • Amelia says:

        Oh, I remember seeing a bit of that on BBC4, I didn’t watch it all the way through though, I only caught a little of the first episode. Mainly because I’m a scatterbrain and completely forgot it was on rather than a lack of interest.
        The half hour I saw was quite good. Tennant is a suitably brooding hero (I’m guessing that’s probably his factory setting) and there’s train sex between depressing stares at one point if that floats your boat at all.
        It’s a little slow to get off the ground and wasn’t overtly tense for a spy thriller, but then again, I didn’t see the concluding episode so they may have been setting things up for a cracking finale for all I know. The atmosphere struck me as being a little bit like a lite version of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (a film I love, incidentally.)
        A couple of historical inaccuracies as well (1950′s jazz featured in 1930′s Warsaw, for example. Although I suppose he was Doctor Who . . .)
        I think it’ll be good for a quiet night in and a glass of white (or red, whatever takes your fancy :) )

      • Eve says:

        Sixth sense to sexy alien lizards indeed. It’s that, plus some Beetlejuice-appearing properties, you should know that by now (say my name and I’ll show up).

        As for a possible Star Trek South American tour: I don’t know…and even if he did come here, it’d be probably to places like São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro (both far from where I live).

        About sun lotion — I know a really nice way to put that on him (can’t say it here though).

      • T.Fanty says:

        Hm. Not a glowing endorsement. Allons-y loves Tennant, so I’ll see if she can muster up a little more enthusiasm before I part with my $2.99 per episode.

  5. jenn says:

    That high collared grey ensemble reminds me of Dr. Evil for some reason. Just sayin’.

  6. Apples says:

    What the everlasting crap is with his fixation with turtlenecks paired with a business suit jacket?!
    He always reminds me of those old newscaster clips from the 1970′s.
    Why, Tommy? Why?

  7. T.Fanty says:

    @Miss Eyre:

    This isn’t related to anything, so I figured I would post it here: did you ever finish Finger Smith?

    • j.eyre says:

      I did, darling. I fear I did not cotton to it as much as I had hoped. I did like the twists and just when I was losing interest, they would keep me reading but ultimately, there were just one too many twists. And some of the incongruous actions of the characters put me off. I did not dislike it, I just would have liked to see my editor have a go at it before it was published.

      I am reading Z, A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald now. I’ll let you know.

      On the subject of “other things” I have another shirt for your Cumby in the works. We launch the shop next week. I will give you a link as soon as it’s all done.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Excellent! I shall look forward to it.

        I’m disappointed you didn’t like Fingersmith, although I kind of understand. I thought the good outweighed the bad, though. Keep me posted on the Zelda book. I’m just finishing Bring up the Bodies and am trying to decide on a new book. I’m thinking of going old-school and finally reading I, Claudius.

      • j.eyre says:

        Have you read “A Paris Wife?” I loved that one. I am about to start The Thirteenth Tale on recommendation from my mother. She and I usually have the same tastes and loved this book (except for the Dragon Tattoo books – my folks loved those and I wanted to hit someone)

        Yes, I would say the good outweighed the bad. The writing was fine and the story was better than the plot so as I said, I did not dislike it.

        After Tale, I have to read a classic, I have to read 3 a year. Which one, which one? I am thinking of Three Musketeers for the next PlumeNotes – thoughts? Any excuse to read that book again.

      • T.Fanty says:

        I haven’t – the one about Hemingway? I’ll check it out. Have you ever read Regeneration, by Pat Barker? That’s a *GREAT* book.

        I feel the same way about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I just about got through the first book and once I saw that the second book involved torturing children, I happily checked out. If I wanted to be a voyeur of bad writing and gratuitous violence against children, I’d watch Criminal Minds, thankyouverymuch.

        I haven’t read The Three Musketeers for years – I would need your PlumeNotes! We’re reading Frankenstein in my Milton class, which I haven’t read for probably ten years, and is an absolute blast. My students all loved it in high school and are now aghast at what a whiny, hysterical little girl Victor is.

        ETA: Just looked up The Thirteenth Tale. Sold!

      • j.eyre says:

        I loved Frankenstein. I almost had the Heir read it over Christmas break but I did not think he would get the moral part yet. And then I stumbled across Wrinkle in Time and told hm how amazing it was. When asked what it was about, i turned to Wiki that talked of the tesseract, which I had completely forgotten. Little Avenger’s fans don’t need to hear much more than that.

        Paris Wife is about Hemingway’s first wife and yes, him too. It is historical fiction – a novel. I don’t actually read too many biographies. Do you know about the Murphy’s (if not, read We Were All Young Once – that is a bio but a quick one and so decadent.) Anyway, there is a scene in Paris Wife when they are all at the Murphy’s vacation home in the South of France and Hadley comes downstairs to Scott Fitzgerald editing The Sun Also Rises with Hemingway over his shoulder. I swear it was better than any porn I have every read.

        Regeneration just went on the Good Reads List – thank you!

      • T.Fanty says:

        I’ve never read A Wrinkle in Time, but Mr. Beaupleasir is tapping his fingers and waiting for the day the Fantlings are old enough to read it. Have you seen the abridged series of classics for kids? We actually have the Jane Eyre version – they’re quite good.

        Hillary Mantel is bringing me back into the fold of historical fiction. I’ll check it out. Regeneration is *SO* good – let me know when you read it. It’s literary too – about Siegfried Sassoon being committed when he protests WWI. There’s actually a movie of it, too, starring Johnny Lee Miller, when he had hair and was hot.

      • Lulu.T.O. says:

        Mmmm…The Thirteenth Tale. Great premise, great title. I just wasn’t overly impressed with it. I know I’m probably in the minority though…

      • j.eyre says:

        @LuluT.O. – were not impressed with it why, exactly? Was it the writing or did the story fall short. I am just curious so I can know going into it.

        My mother is one of those that reads about 3-5 books a week so sometimes she will like a book solely based on the premise. She is very forgiving if she wants to like something.

        All feedback is good.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Do tell – and quickly! I was just about to place my BN order!

  8. Annette says:

    Whole outfit seems too tight. His face looks good in the last pic but botoxey in the close ups.

  9. Eleonor says:

    Whatever he does Tom looks damn good for a 50 years old. I might start thinking that’s the crazyness. Crazyness keeps you young, like in Halle Berry’s case.

  10. Anon says:

    Maybe Tom’s covering up that turkey neck. He’s 50 and beefy. Starting to get that William Shatner look.

  11. I Choose Me says:

    Poor Olga. I thought her white gown with the lace inset wasn’t the worst thing I’d seen but that pale pink fluff puff of a dress is pure fuggery. Another Marchesa I’d bet.

  12. Gigi says:

    I can’t stand Virgos, so boring–but I would never assume you’re a Virgo by your writing :)

  13. lucy2 says:

    Every time he does that intense smile, I feel like I can hear his brain screaming “love me! love me!” Creep.

    I’m so happy we’re getting more Arrested Development episodes, if a movie happens too, it’s just a bonus.

  14. apsutter says:

    He is such a FREAK and this movie is going to bomb…HARD! The guy who plays Jaime Lannister was on Conan last night and he’s also in this movie and they weren’t allowed to talk about it at all! He couldn’t talk about what the movie is about, his character, the personal life of the stars(cough Tom Cruise cough) or anything. How can you sell a movie without releasing anything about it? I’m guessing it’s a giant turd of a film.

  15. Anne says:

    Saw the promo on tv for Oblivion last night, uh, what’s this movie supposed to be about? Is it about Tom Cruise?

  16. SydneySpy says:

    Turtleneck. Not tight enough.

  17. MM says:

    I think he looks gr8 be quiet u r so negative
