Cultural Life: Ralf Little, actor

The Independent Culture

Television

I love 'The Simpsons' and 'Futurama'. 'Family Guy' is great in its irreverence and 'South Park' in recent series has had some of the most incisive and relevant social commentary on television. Speaking of social commentary, though, nothing beats Charlie Brooker's 'Screenwipe' and 'Newswipe' programmes.

Films

To my surprise, I really enjoyed 'Watchmen'. At times it surpassed the graphic novel. I also can't wait to see 'Brüno'.

Books

I'm halfway through 'Bad Science' by Ben Goldacre. It's about debunking popular 'medical' myths that have no basis in actual science.

Theatre

I saw 'England People Very Nice' by Richard Bean and Shakespeare's 'All's Well That Ends Well' at the National. It's not easy to stage plays on a scale as large as that but the National manages to pull it off with apparent ease and incredible flair.

Music

I'm still enjoying Kings of Leon's 'Only by the Night'. The Killers and Elbow are current favourites, too, and of course being from Manchester I'm obliged by law to mention Oasis.

Ralf Little stars in 'Telstar', out now
