Whereabouts: Greg Wise

"What care I for colds when there is such a man?" --Marianne Dashwood, Sense and Sensibility

I spotted Greg Wise (Willoughby in Ang Lee's Sense and Sensibility, Guy Thwaite in The Buccaneers, and Emma Thompson's real life main squeeze) guest-starring on Zen, a sadly short-lived BBC detective series featuring another Romancing the Tome fave, the swarthy Rufus Sewell (Middlemarch and the upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). Zen is set in Rome--albeit with a mostly British cast--and currently available streaming on PBS.org. Wise will portray John Ruskin in the upcoming film Effie, with co-stars Dakota Fanning--as Ruskin's teen bride--and Emma Thompson.
