Thanks. Which (American) Hollywood actor was "blacked" from the title role in BBC TV's 1981 production of Othello as a result of Equity's demand that the part be taken by a Brit?

i remember Anthony Hopkins being caught up in something like that so I'll say it's him.

You're close Abe in that Anthony Hopkins ended up playing the Moor in that very BBC production. But the original choice was an American-born star and character actor and it is his name I seek.

It's taken some digging, but I think it's the fabulous James Earl Jones?

Thankyou :)

Somewhat trite, maybe......but what were the names of Higgins' two Dobermanns in Magnum P.I.?

The idea of an ice cream trying to be a detective is ridiculous so I never watched this. A guess:

Laurel and Hardy
