Bits I like:
1. "Peter is responsible for the deeper background information," Gross explains, "and I get all the punchlines … we're just in the process of rehearsing now. It's going to be seamless, professional and absolutely Earth-shattering."
2. When pressed for details on the roles he'll be enacting, Gross won't give any clues, but says, "I intend to improvise quite a lot. I have some things I'm just going to come up with on the spot. Some interpretive dance."
Oundjian looks at him cautiously and adds: "And I have the controls to his microphone."

Once present we received from a fellow living-history buff was a 'Merlin' DVD - I'm now utterly obsessed with it. Colin Morgan? Best young actor I have seen for years and years, and the show's brightest asset by far. Must be something in Irish genes...
