Also, while discussing editing - it seems strange to have his career divided into 'Film career' and 'Other Work' and 'Singing career'. Especially when 'Film career' and 'Other Work' both include television - and when his 'Singing career' is part of his 'Film career'. Possibly it's time for a re-write of his resume. 'Television', 'Film' and 'Stage' perhaps? Or simply 'Acting' if his other categories remain as 'Writing' and 'Personal life'. Is someone monitoring this site?

He starred in the film Fourplay but it isn't in his filmography. I'd do it but I don't know what year it was. Michaelritchie200 12:09, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
- It's listed as a 2001 release with the alternative title Londinium. I took care of Wikifying both titles with internal links. -- Deborahjay (talk) 15:47, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
Tumbledown (BBC drama)
Always amazed that the media never refer to Firth's starring role in Tumbledown, the BBC drama about the Falklands War. Probably one of the most controversial tv programmes ever made. The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:212187.153.230 10:40, 15 January 2007

- In almost every film he's been in since Pride & Prejudice, he ends up in a wet shirt. In Mamma Mia!, he is topless but still doused in water.
I've added La Fenice (2004), reported by IMDB as being in development at that time, with a projected release date of 2005. Peter O'Toole was to co-star in a film based on mystery writer Donna Leon's novel Death at La Fenice. Firth was vague when questioned in interviews about the proposed film, and the film has yet to be made. K. Kellogg-Smith (talk) 12:08, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
Academy Award on The King's Speech
why is it labeled -pending, are you so sure he will win? Do not imply that, its offensive for the other actors nominated in the same category. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 09:53, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
His musical education -- joke being taken literally?
I saw this sentence:
While in Kings' School, he wanted to play the guitar, but the school banned the guitar and saxophone, as they were "not serious instruments", and he was told to play the baritone euphonium instead.
I immediately suspected this came from something he said in an interview, because it sounded to me like deadpan English humor. I looked at the citation, and lo and behold, it came from an interview on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Are you sure he wasn't joking when he said this? Maybe we should at least quote him directly rather than drawing any conclusions about how serious he was being. marbeh raglaim (talk) 16:33, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
Another "joke" is his accepting the honor of being "appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE)" while simultaneously being a "vocal republican (i.e. doesn't support monarchy)." You can't have it both ways. If it weren't for the monarchy there would be no CBE. It seems his ego just could not say no to becoming a CBE despite his vocal distaste for its origins, traditions and foundations - the monarchy. Yet one more and entirely classic case of the hypocrisy of the left. Disgusting. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 07:31, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
