Edi Gathegi: Downton Abbey Addict

This isn’t exactly Twilight related but it’s an awful lot of fun. Edi Gathegi made a video for the Downton Addicts’ site. It’s a spoof on how addicting Downton Abbey is, and from what we’ve seen, many Twilight fans are also Downton Abbey addicts. It make you wonder if Edi got any ideas from seeing exuberant Twilight fans over the years at premieres and conventions.

Edi Gathegi Gets Great Review in Superior Donuts

Edi Gathegi is in a play written by Tony and Pulitzer winner Tracey Letts of August Osage County fame. The LA Times just gave it a thumbs up.

‘The best thing about Arney’s production is the rapport between the two leads. As Franco, Gathegi is always in exuberant motion, busting out ecstatic dance moves at any sign of approval, quipping and exhorting with a breathlessness that is just as dizzying. He’s a charmer, and he works overtime to get a reaction from Arthur, who, as played by Cole, is withdrawn yet not impervious to this young man’s charisma. This old progressive’s dried-up heart can still be touched.”
