James Purefoy on BBC1 Breakfast today.

INJUSTICE actor James Purefoy is still set to star in the return of classic TV show The Saint.

Or so it would appear.

I spoke to him about the role of British international playboy Simon Templar when we met in London last month.

James told me that filming of an American TV pilot – The Saint In New Orleans – was due to start in July.

Of which more further down this blog.

But he was not asked about the project when he appeared on BBC1’s Breakfast sofa this morning.

Or during his ITV1 interview with Lorraine yesterday.

Dougray Scott in Father and Son

HE stars tonight – and the next three nights – in Father and Son.

One of the best dramas you’ll see on ITV1 this year.

I met up with Dougray Scott on the banks of the Thames in London at the end of April to talk about his role as reformed gangster Michael O’Connor.

Having also spoken to him at BAFTA last year for Day of the Triffids.

You can read more about Father and Son in my MEN feature here.

We also chatted about the future, including Dougray’s reported involvement in a revival of ITV’s classic 1960s series The Saint.
