Wow, did Leonard *really* just try to tell Ciaran Hinds what nationality he is?? You invite an Irishman on your show and the first thing you do is feel the need to talk to him about British people, call him British and, even when he implies 'let's not go there', you explain to him that he's British. Uhh, nice.

Does Ciaran Hinds ever get a chance to rest? He has to be the hardest working actor in show biz, as well as one of the best.

It was funny when Leonard asked why it's a limited run, and the actors' ensuing awkward answers. Read yesterday's NYT article about how Hollywood stars call the shots on Broadway revivals and production schedules. It reveals the real reason why "Cat" got revived, again, now.

Most of those Southerners were of Scots-Irish ancestry, originating from northern Ireland, so it is hardly surprising that present day Scots-Irish could accommodate to the Southern accents so readily.

But there is no question, that all those Brits are taking American acting jobs! And Australians too!
