Re: Identity of this "Camp/Gay" magician please

The Illusionists clip shared earlier in the thread appears to have been recorded in front of a UK 'celebrity' audience - the kind of show that ITV does on a regular basis.

Gone Girl

Caught this movie at the cinema today - nice to see NPH in a serious role for a change in this David Fincher film.

Has anyone seen this yet? I would be interested to hear what folks thought of the movie and of Mr Harris' performance.
