Matthew MacFadyen & Sonnet 29
Matthew MacFadyen returns to the small screen as Arthur Clennam in Little Dorrit, to be shown in 5 installments on PBS's Masterpiece Classic starting March 29. He has been quite busy since his turn as Mr. Darcy in 2005, starring in Ashes to Ashes, Death At a Funeral (a quirky comedy which will be remade into an American film soon), and Frost/Nixon.

In this YouTube clip, hear Matthew's marvelously unforgettable voice as he recites Shakespeare's Sonnet #29, one of three poems he recorded for a DVD.
In this last clip, hear Rufus Wainwright sing the words to Sonnet #29 to scenes from Pride and Prejudice 2005.
