Art Imitating Life
I didn’t realise that noticing the weird resemblance between Roger Allam and Christopher Hitchens was a new thing. When I watched V for Vendetta years ago, and I saw Allam playing a sleazy, fascist, corrupt talk-show host I briefly assumed that Hitchens had volunteered to do a cameo. Then I discovered that it was a different person, but you can see why I was confused. The style of argument, the mannerisms, and the personality were all as you would expect.
