Wednesday's Quote of the Day
"I wasn't good-looking enough to play myself" - Writer Toby Young explains why he will drop himself from the cast of a play based on his memoir How To Lose Friends And Alienate People.
Simon Pegg plays Toby Young in the film version of the book that tells the tale of Young's humiliating stint at the glamorous fashion bible Vanity Fair.
But Young is taking a stage version to an off-Broadway venue, intending to play himself for the first four weeks.
If it's a hit, he wants Pegg to take over. His remark, although tongue-in-cheek, gives a glimpse of what Young thinks of the superficial showbiz world.
