More love for UK actorsespecially those whose work is as good in non-US projects as it is wince inducing on American TV.

The recent high-profile gigs of hot Scotsman Kevin McKidd (Rome) in TV’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Journeyman,” and the straight-to-airplane Made of Honor do him no credit, but he is a one hell of a Count Vronsky in this “Masterpiece” version of Anna Karenina (2000).

Yeah, I’d throw myself in front of a train, too, if I thought he was cheating on me.

P.S. Brit Helen McCrory, who plays Anna, is hooked up with another UK redhead, Damian Lewis, star of TV’s “Life.”
