Ihad no idea that Daniel Craig was born in Chester but apparently he started acting in school plays when he was young. He was encouraged to try his hand at acting by his mother who would often take him to the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool. He moved to London when he was 16, where he worked at odd jobs while pursuing his acting career. Hollywood discovered him in 2001, when he was chosen to co-star with Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider. He co-starred with Paul Newman and Tom Hanks in Road to Perdition. In 2004 he was cast as a cocaine dealer in Layer Cake, and it was this movie that showed he had what it would take to become the legendary and mythical James Bond. Casino Royale became the most successful James Bond movie, followed by Quantum of Solace then our favourite Bond film; Skyfall, before his last outing in Spectre. He has also starred in another of our favourite films; The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Today, Daniel calls into Jammy Toast to have a chat with Eric…
Hello everyone, my name is Eric. I am a teddy bear from Jammy Toast and this is my column. Today I have come to interview our favourite panel show regular, cardigan wearer and self-proclaimed worrier Jon Richardson. He is currently on tour and features tomorrow night on C4 at 10pm in How To Survive The End Of The World with his wife, comedian Lucy Beaumont, where they investigate the chances of their biggest irrational fears actually happening…
Happy New Year and welcome to Jammy Toast. If you have been here before then welcome back but if you are a new visitor then make yourselves at home. Whoever you are, wherever you are from, we are always welcome here at Jammy Toast. If this is your first visit then let me introduce ourselves. Here at Jammy Toast we save bears who have been cast adrift into the hands of charity shops and car boot or eBay sales. All these bears need is a happy family home to make them feel loved and wanted – this is where we step in. Our job here at Jammy Toast is to save bears and provide them with a happy home where they can watch daytime telly and play on the internet.
People have asked many times in the past why the Jammy Toast website is black and white with touches of red. The Bearkeeper has answered this by explaining that the Renault Bears can only see in black and white because they have a reduced number of stems or something in their eyes. I don’t quite understand the science behind this but that is the reasoning. However, because the bears have eaten so much Jammy Toast over the years they have developed their eyesight so that they can now also see jammy red – hence Jammy Toast is black, white and red. This is fair enough but what about me? What about yellow?
The following article appeared in the Guardian newspaper earlier this year and announced it would uncover my past, my legacy and the reason why I have a triangular nose. It was a supported article – in other words the newspaper was paid to print it as an advertisement for MAA, the Marketing Agencies Association. It describes how it all started…
Flat Eric has decided to resurrect his website. He previously started a blog but gave up after only a couple of weeks because it was too much like hard work. This time, however, he has decided to write on his own blog when the mood takes him, rather than daily, and continue with his column here on Jammy Toast. If you want to pop round and say, “hello”, his site is still at the same place.
The other week we told you that we were going to reveal a huge big secret but that we had to wait until all the pieces were in place before we could make the revelation. We didn’t want anything to go wrong at the last minute and leave someone who is very special to us disappointed. Unfortunately the secret took a little longer to resolve than we had originally hoped – hence the delay. In fact, if truth be told, someone seriously let us down and in the end we had to hand it over to Razzi to “have a word!” and resolve the situation. We are sorry to be all cloak and dagger about the matter but it is such a big surprise for the person concerned we just really do not want to spoil it. However, today we can reveal, Flat Eric has a son!
Today I went to work with The Bearkeeper because Razzi was being lazy and didn’t want to get out of bed. This was the first time I have ever been out in the car and it was an exciting time. It was particularly hot and so we went for a short detour to New Brighton beach and took in some of the sights. The Bearkeeper told me that the other side of the river we were looking across has iron men on the beach who have gone all rusty because of the sea water. I thought to myself it would be nice being in the water during this hot weather but it would be a different thing in the winter when it is freezing cold and the tide is coming in. They would be positively sub-zero!
Hello everyone it is me, Flat Eric. It was nice to return last night to pick the music for our musical Sunday and even better that some of you even welcomed me back. I have a little confession to make – I think I was a little hasty planning on leaving Jammy Toast because as soon as I did so I realised how much I missed all you guys. So, to cut a long story short, I have asked Mr Bearkeeper if I can have my old job back and he has agreed that I can stay on as Music Correspondent permanently.
We are going to be missing for a little while here at Jammy Toast. Flat Eric has decided he wants to start a website of his own and so we are all going to give him a hand to get it up and running. As you all know, Eric is a big star and it is only fitting he should have a website of his own and so rather than leave him to get on it on his own we are all going to lend a hand just like he helps us with Jammy Toast. We are not exactly sure how long this will take but we will keep you informed.
