Ben Cross has crazy chops

For the last 20 years, the meme has been that "Nobody likes the Dark Shadows Revival series." It was something I'd come to believe myself until I noticed the significant bumps in traffic this website experiences whenever I mention the show.

BEN CROSS, who played Barnabas Collins in that series, is a talented guy. His acting career has been all over the map and suggests a man of good taste. He's also an accomplished jazz singer and performs live whenever his schedule allows. On Nov. 29, he hit the stage at the Sofia Live Club in Bulgaria. I know nothing about jazz beyond some rudimentary experience with Dizzy Gillespie, because A.) I used to live in his home town and B.) Gillespie and I had a few acquaintances in common. Just because I've heard "A Night in Tunisia" doesn't make me an expert on jazz.

Cross was recently in my neck of the woods, filming a new show for Cinemax in Charlotte, N.C., called BANSHEE.  I mention that because the idea of Cross playing a Russian gangster named Mr. Rabbit sounds badass, and because I can't figure out how to end this post. Somebody drop a cow on me!
