Graham's guests include musician, entrepreneur and The Voice judge will.i.am and stage and screen actor Imelda Staunton, who stars in the new romantic comedy Finding Your Feet. Plus Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr, taking the role of Billy Flynn in Chicago, and musical guest George Ezra performs Paradise.

Cuba's comments about the enthusiasm of the Oscar audience for his freak out was quite a bit more insightful than i usually associate with him. Hmm. Maybe i should reevaluate him...

George Ezra continues to look Not At All like he sings.

More Imelda Staunton, please!

Less Cuba Gooding Jr, please!

I did not like him at all. I didn't like any of his stories. I didn't think he sounded all that great when he sang. Why would anyone hire him for Chicago?

Imelda Staunton, however, was fantastic. I think Graham should have a couch with just a few actors from the Harry Potter movies. Along with Staunton, definitely Emma Thompson,  Miriam Margoyles, and Julie Walters. Maybe also Kenneth Branagh, Mark Williams, David Tennant.... I guess I could go on and on.

I remember reading (a long time ago, so it might not still be true) that Imelda and Tom live next door to Emma Thompson & Greg Wise. How fun would their block parties be? 

How fun would it be to borrow a cup of sugar?

George Ezra is unknown in this house (not uncommon with Graham's musical guests), and when he started singing, Mr. Outlier and I looked at each other wide eyed--neither of us expected him to sound like that.

The first Big Red Chair story was the best.

I watched two episodes in one night, and can't remember which was which.  On one episode, the first story was about a parrot that said "bonjour," and it sounded like a joke and not a real story to me, and I think Norton even said, "That's not true" as he flipped him.  For the life of me, I can't remember the first story on the other episode.

Just came across a clip of his first appearance on the GN Show and Denzel Washington noticed the difference between his speaking and singing voice and asked him about it. He claimed that he hadn't been a good singer until the day he decided to sing with his 'big voice'.
