Open Question: Why am I attracted to Bill
Like, seriously? He's sixty five, I'm 18, and I've been weirdly attracted to him since I saw him for the first time as Rufus Scrimgeour. That hair and ugh I don't know he's really old and not that attractive and I'm just not sure what it is about him that I find so compelling? My best friend feels the same way, so if you can give us a hint as to why we adore him that would be super helpful.

Time ago I saw a Bill Nighy's movie where the guy he plays get hurt or die... I don't remember the movie well, it was time ago.
Can you help me with simple list of the movies where he gets hurt or die? So I could find the one I looking for...

Resolved Question: Where can I find a Bill
My friend has a soft spot for Bill Nighy (who knows why!) so I want to get her a Bill Nighy calendar as a jokey present for her birthday. There's normally a calendar for most celebrities but cant seem to find one. Maybe someone else will have more luck?

Resolved Question: Do you consider Bill
I love a lot of his older work, like Still Crazy, Love Actually, Blow Dry or The Girl in The Cafe. But lately I can't shake the feeling that he lost his versatility and is only playing "one face fits all lanky strangely moving" characters.
What do you think? Has he become lazy? Does he choose the wrong roles?
BQ: Your favourite role of Bill? Now Now, he was Viktor in Underworld, not Marcus
meepers, I liked him as Davy Jones. But that was one of the last roles I really enjoyed him in. The technical crew also did a fantstic job to translate Bill's expressions into Davy's face, so that it was unmistakably Bill.
