Me Mark Strong

From Witterpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

British television and movie actor, notable for providing quality supporting work in bigger movies (which led to the And Mark Strong game and The Mark Strong But Game), and sometimes providing the only ray of sunshine in an otherwise dismal production (RocknRolla, John Carter). He was added to the Hello to... list after his outstanding appearance as the head of the Lebanese security service and the éminence grise - or "greasy eminence", as Mark Kermode translated from the French - in Body Of Lies.

Strong's command of accents is exemplary, which must have been interesting when he starred alongside Russell Crowe in Robin Hood.

In one of Wittertainment's more obscure in-jokes, Simon refers to him as "Me Mark Strong" in a nod to early 1980s Radio 1 DJ Mark Page, whose show was called Me Mark Page.
