Colin Firth on ATC

So it fell to Robert Siegel to interview Mr. Firth about his role in "The King's Speech."  Sigh.  Far be it from me to criticize the interviewing style of the venerable ATC host, but he manages to make an interview with many listeners' favorite actor (okay, my favorite actor) downright dull.  It didn't help that the actor was in New York and the host in DC.  Terry Gross is the only person I know who can concoct chemistry long distance.  And perhaps Firth was sick of answering the same questions over and over again.  But what a wasted opportunity!  Give a listen and tell me what you think.
