John Hannah
Actor, Sliding Doors (1998)
John Hannah, as the mystery man who may or may not be our heroine’s Mr Right, works a little too hard to be charming, and his character’s tendency to quote from Monty Python struck me as more creepy than endearing.
(Chris Tookey, Daily Mail)
What women don't want, I can tell you now, is the sort of man played by Hannah: someone who entertains his friends by reciting Monty Python sketches in cringe-making silly voices, or who leads embarrassing sing-alongs in pubs. I can't think of a single universe in which any sane girl would touch this drongo with a barge-pole.
(Anne Billson, Sunday Telegraph)
Actor, The Mummy (1999)
Whoever asked John Hannah to play a yellow British buffoon. was presumably blind to the fact that he is sly, slender, smart, and extremely Scottish. However much he was paid to shout the words “I say, bloody good show, chaps”, it was not enough.
(Anthony Lane, New Yorker)
Actor, Pandaemonium (2001)
John Hannah plays William Wordsworth with an accent that alternates between the Lake District and the Gorbals, and a stiffness that suggests a martyrdom to haemorrhoids.
