From The Type 40 to the Reasonably Priced Car

OK - I know this was probably shown over in the UK back in February, but it just showed up on BBC America this week - Matt Smith's drive around the Top Gear Track in their Reasonably Priced Car.  I won't tell you where he came out on the list of the other 2 new series Doctors (Tennant and Eccleston) or Billie Piper - you'll just have to see.  So for those of you in the UK and US who didn't see it - here is Matt Smith's trip around the Top Gear track.

If you want to re-live the others - here are the links to Christopher Elccleston's, David Tenant's and Billie Piper's drives:

Toast Of The Great White Way

The gentleman who played the The Doctor's roommate and soccer pal and Stormageddon's father, James Corden, has been nominated for a slew of awards this stage season for his role in the comedy "One Man - Two Guvnors".

He has been nominated as "Best Actor in a Play" (as opposed to musicals - they have their own categories) for all of the big ones and some of the lesser known awards, the Tony, The Drama Desk Award (which covers Broadway, Off Broadway and off-off Broadway - I think those have to have at least a New York Zip Code), the Outer Critics Circle (publisher of Playbill) and the Drama League (support a variety of stage related projects in New York).

As for Corden's competition for the Tony, he is up against some serious American heavyweights of the acting game.  Philip Seymour Hoffman ( in "Death of a Salesman", James Earl Jones ( in "The Best Man", Frank Langella ( in "Man and Boy" and John Lithgow ( in "Ther Columnist"

He's up against men who have played Truman Capote (Hoffman), Darth Vader's voice (Jones), Dracula (Langella) and The Trinity Killer (Lithgow) - a dangrous bunch to be sure.

Against that crowd it would be hard from our "Craig" to win, but you neevr know, I'm pulling for him :-)
