Did that photo service really describe her as "actress" Dana Broccoli? She owned the James Bond franchise! A very powerful and formidable woman indeed and one who's death has suprisingly received very little press coverage here and in the UK.
It does; and it looks like he has a goatee, too. And don't tell me he cut his hair for the funeral. Please, tell me he didn't cut it for Matador, though! And methinks with this haircut he could use an ear cut as well, at least on those pictures.
Considering that The Matador begins shooting in about 3 weeks, whether he cut it for the film or not it will be short for it. Really, better to cut your hair early for a role, so just in case it's a tad too short you can grow it out a bit.
Music, dancing and Pierce Brosnan are on the bill for Luton's fifth St Patrick's Day festival.
The nine-day long celebrations begin tomorrow and are being organised by the Luton Irish Forum.
Forum member Joe Ward said: "This is the biggest festival outside of Birmingham and London in the whole country."
The week's centrepiece will be the St Patrick's Day Parade, which marches through the town centre on Sunday, March 14.
The parade will be decked with banners and flags of all 32 Irish counties, and flanked by stilt walkers, marching bands, line dancers, and the Luton University pipe band. It starts at 11am on Manor Road, while the day's celebrations will have a main stage at Market Hill.
A second stage at Smith's Square in the Arndale Centre will also have music and dancing throughout the day, and an Irish market will run from Market Hill to George Street selling Irish food and arts and craft.
On Saturday March 13 there is the Grand St Patrick's Ball at the Holy Ghost Centre, with music from the Brose Walsh band and dancing from the Abbeyknockmoy set dancers.
The Arndale Centre first hosts Luton Alive - Alive-O, a mixture of music, song, dance and laughter on Sunday March 14 from 11am.
And on St Patrick's Day it houses a three-hour show of Irish dancing and music.
The Library Theatre is the base of the final three nights, beginning with Thursday March 18 movie screenings of Agnes Browne, and the Pierce Brosnan flick Evelyn.
From 8pm on Friday March 19 there will be a combination of music and dance, featuring Celtica dancers, a harpist, and folk music.
And the week concludes with the theatrical drama The Rare Oul' Times, about the playwright Brendan Behan and poet Paddy Kavanagh, beginning at 7pm on Saturday, March 20.

Sounds quite fun, although by March 19 they'll be into St. Joseph's Day, which some girls I used to know celebrated more than St. Patrick's Day, they said because their heritage was Italian. (What connection does St. Joseph have with Italy?)
