Subby's obviously never seen 'Daredevil' or 'Seven Psychopaths' cause that dude's acting is awesome. He deserves a statue somewhere at least, probably in Bruges (ha! Another Colin Firth reference, I'm on FIRE!!!)

That's like erecting a giant statue of Matt Damon in Times Square.

Matt Damon isn't from New York City, he's from Boston. I don't agree with the analogy, though. Firth may not technically be from London, but he's spent time there so I don't see how the location is inappropriate. What is wildly inappropriate is the amateurish way in which the statue has been carved out. Has no one seen the picture?

They should have done it in Scotland. It could have been the Firth of the Firth of Forth.

Thanks for reminding me I have yet to watch 'Seven Psycopaths', and I watched 'In Bruges' with friends and I was the only one who thought it was good....but not a movie to drink to! lol

Okay - I think Colin Firth is incredibly adorable, but that is frightening.

/runs away screaming from Giganto-Firth.

Statue should have been put in the Firth of Forth.

The 1st half is pretty good but it kind of goes down hill from there. I thought it was a little disappointing.

I've erected several times to Colin Firth.

Look upon my works, ye mighty and despair, becaus,e let's face it, I'm Colin Firth. Not exactly a, uh, paragon of acting. Um...yeah.

/going for self-effacing there
//don't think I nailed it
///I like Colin Firth, but he's a fairly humble guy who likes to downplay how good he is.
