28 British Stars Taking Hollywood By Storm
Ricky Gervais' invasion of Hollywood is complete, as he takes the lead in supernatural comedy Ghost Town this weekend.

Guess they were right when they picked up that Oscar for Chariots of Fire: The British are coming.

RE: British Stars Breaking Into Hollywood
Why does Sean Bean never get mentioned in any list of Brits in Hollywood? Goldeneye, The Island, National Treasure and many more big and small films.  Not a new name but not mentioned in the established ones either.  Don't understand the criteria for this list. ... Read More

RE: RE:
alive newbies! The reason that Christian Bale , Daniel Craig, Alan Rickman and the 50 others you mention are not on list is because its a Brits Breaking into Hollywood and not Established Brits in Hollywood article e, although there's nothing in the header or the introductory text to suggest that's the case. Only the absence of so many obvious names. On the other hand, if it really is "Brits Breaking into Hollywood" the inclusion of Gerard Butler, Baron Cohen, Hugh Laurie, Minnie Driver ... Read More

Christian Bale's British... Welsh-born British... I mean, he's Batman. I was surprised he wasn't in this list. And there are many actors here I've never heard of - they're probably not as big as you may think in the UK. I've lived in Canada, South Korea, and now in Japan, and I'm completely unfamiliar with some of those actors... Hmm? ... Read More
