Anyhow, in the absence of any confirmation on the various projects that are currently being bandied around, I thought I’d honour Richard’s turn as Francis Dolarhyde with a little reverence and self-reference. I am feeling quite smug here (obviously…), having hailed his whole performance as FD last year, and right from the get go.

Congratulations on your second Saturn Award, Richard!
Can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
