Jane Austen fans know him best as Mr. Darcy, but Matthew Macfadyen has been busy lately. His turn as the rather lumpish plain-looking John Birt in Frost/Nixon (right) was well done, and American audiences will see him this spring as Arthur Clennam in Little Dorrit on PBS (below).
The Haagen Danz commercial featured in this YouTube video is not recent. But for those of you who wonder about Matthew's appeal to the ladies, just LISTEN to his lovely voice. Drool. I don't care if it is 20 degrees farenheit outside, cool me down with an ice cream, quick.
