Looking back at notes I've made I was very scathing about Rory Kinnear in Festen, wonder whatever happened to him.
Which way did he go McGill?

I LOVED him in Festen, and the play as a whole too. A highlight of all my theatregoing

Does no one remember Cornell John as Javert in Les Mis?

He murdered the role as much as the Jonas child murdered Marius.

A few off the top of my head:
Nick Jonas in Les Mis 25th - beyond hideous.
Alexia Khadime as Eponine - dreadful, her screeching and riffing during 'On My Own' hurt my ears, badly miscast.
Marti Pellow in Jekyll and Hyde - so so bad, can't sing, can't act. Dread seeing him in Evita.
Lee Mead as Fiyero - really bad.
Simon Bowman as Valjean - poorest Valjean performance I've ever seen.
Sienna Miller in Flare Path - about as wooden as a plank.

Sienna Miller in Flare Path?  What???  Perhaps you attended an entirely different show than I did.  She got that particular role just right.
Excuse me if I seem jejune
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.
