Fwaaah, Mr. Simm

Oh, he's lovely. And he used to date Baby? his I did not know!

One of the best actors of his generation, and long a cult star and unlikely sex symbol, Simm, 36, has been threatening to hit the big time for a while. State of Play raised his profile. But it was the time-travelling cop show Life on Mars that put him on the map. Not only did the show pull in more than seven million viewers, the DVD became one of last year's biggest sellers. In November, Life on Mars won Best Drama Series at the International Emmy Awards. And Hollywood producer David E Kelley (of Ally McBeal fame) is planning to make a US version.

Bit worried about that last part. Great, Kelly will try to redeem the Gene Genie, Sam will talk to an imaginary baby and Annie will be anorexic in the US version. Yay. Go America.
