Gratuitous Brunette: Clive Owen

When these birthday wishes were first posted on this day in 2007, expectations were running high at the Pop Culture Institute for the then-forthcoming Elizabeth: The Golden Age, starring Cate Blanchett as the ginger virgin/firebrand herself and birthday boy Clive Owen as Sir Walter Raleigh. Those expectations were both met and exceeded by the film.

Educated at RADA alongside the likes of Ralph Fiennes and Jane Horrocks, Owen burst into the public consciousness with a role as a soft-spoken hot guy in the film Croupier.

Further roles as soft-spoken hot guys followed: King Arthur, Gosford Park, and Closer; eager to demonstrate his range, he played a hot, soft-spoken guy in Sin City and Children of Men.

The best thing about him, I guess, is he's got such range...

It looks so good I'm not even going to wait for it to come out on DVD - I'm going to see it in the theatre.

Cate Blanchett will almost certainly get the Oscar for it. You heard it here first, folks.
