Here are a few short bits for today:

Wormtongue in Space

For those in range of the Fox station KCPQ in Seattle (which includes those of us up in Vancouver who get it on cable), they are playing the two-part Star Trek Voyager in which Brad Dourif plays ‘Suder’. The first part was last night (Thursday), but the second half, in which he has a major role, is tonight (Friday) at 11:00 p.m., PST. He’s going to make a great Grima Wormtongue!

Thanks to Colleen for the tip!
