Badurday June 5, 2010

Here’s a new guy for you.  His name is Oliver Milburn. Just re-discovered him in a spectacularly horrible movie. He was the most interesting (and by interesting, I mean cute ’cause his character was as dull as the rest of the cast) part of the movie. He’s got great dimples.  The movie was called Me Without You and I could have done without the whole thing.  But it was like a train wreck- I kept watching it out of the corner of my eye as I read a novel, wrote emails and talked to the kid (see how it held my attention?). 

This movie had Michelle Williams and Anna Friel (two pretty good actresses normally) and Trudie Styler (Sting’s wife) of all things!  It was just one BAD movie.  But I googled the guy that played Nat and he qualifies as a Badurday boy because he was in a little gem of a movie called Driving Lessons  with Laura Linney, Rupert Grint and Julie Walters.  He played the lover of Laura Linney’s character that was married to the local priest who was having an affair while she pretended to teach her son to drive.  Cute movie and MUCH better than Me Without You.

For you lovers (like moi) of period pieces, he played in David Copperfield and Byron.  Gotta check out more of this guy’s work.  I’m sure he has done some other good stuff.  Enjoy.

  1. He is a cutie! And do you mean the dimples in his cheeks–or the one in his chin? lol

    And he does wear period clothing well. Not many guys have the jawline to carry off an ascot!

  2. Yum! Yes, he’s a keeper – especially in the Regency clothing (or out of it!)

  3. He did an awesome job of being very bad in Driving Lessons. Great movie. Thanks for sharing Oliver with us. I’ll be keeping a look out for him in other things now.
