Recently divorced actor Stephen C. McQueen (no relation,
unfortunately) seems to have a knack for bad luck. But a failed
marriage, a stalled career, a judgmental ex-wife, a distant
daughter, a horrid little studio apartment in the far reaches of
the London suburbs-all these pathetic elements seem to pale in the
chiseled face of his newest tormentor: the Twelfth Sexiest Man in
the World, Josh Harper.
Josh is the star of Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know, a
biographical play about Lord Byron-and Stephen is his understudy.
Not only is Josh fantastically, infuriatingly good-looking,
internationally renowned, and remarkably talented, he's also
frustratingly healthy. No matter how many all-night booze-and-coke
benders Josh goes on, he always shows up at the stage door for his
call like clockwork. Stephen doubts he'll ever get his chance to
slip on the puffy shirt and tight breeches of Byron and tread the
boards in the role that would certainly be the break he's always
And just when Stephen's sure he couldn't resent Josh more, he meets
Josh's witty, restless American wife, Nora . . . and discovers he
likes her a little too much. Another man might curse his luck at
finding that his potential dream woman is a rival's wife, but at
this point, Stephen would expect nothing else. Caught between his
stirring feelings for Nora, the demands of an insistent and
secretive Josh, and his lifelong desire for a real career in show
business, Stephen must make a terrible decision: Will it be the
girl or the fame?
A hapless, bumbling bloke in love, an arrogant megastar with a
potpourri of addictions, a sexy married woman out of her element in
the fast lane-David Nicholls brings them all together in this
knockout romantic comedy.
