  1. Is that still from the commercial? Seems like Ebeneezer Scrooge is modelling his look on Santa!
    Slight clash of ideologies there, unless it’s at the end of the story or he’s emulating the Grinch and using it as a cunning ruse for stealing people’s flatscreen TVs!

  2. That picture scared the hell out of me.

  3. This is another of those pointless Pink News articles along the lines of ‘Person who happens to be gay does something (that has absolutely no bearing on their sexuality)’

    And this is a victory for who? Or what? Jacobi’s bank balance surely. How does this relate to gay awareness or rights? Oh wait Jacobi is “openly gay”, fair nuff.

    Derek Jacobi is such a good star who deserve it. He is my one of the favorite and famous gay actor.

  9. I am writing to express my disappointment on seeing Sir derek Jacobi appearing in a TV advert for Sony.
    I remember years ago reading an interview with Sir Derek where he declared his loathing of actors appearing in commercials, stating he would never do it himself.
    I am writing to ask why? Why did he go back on that undertaking? Surely he doesn’t need the money?
    To be honest I can’t see why actors and ‘celebrities’ feel the need to do adverts. If they are on their uppers surely there are more decent ways to make a bob or two?
    It’s funny, only a few weeks ago I was explaining how the only actor I know who had said he would never ‘sell-out’ and do a commercial was… well, never say never I guess.
