WHEN ACTORS SING

Normally, we take a pretty dim view of actors turning into rock stars, in exactly the same way we would if a baker suddenly turned his shop into a butcher's. However, we might make an exception for Toni Collette if it means she never, ever makes anything like In Her Shoes ever again. Is it just us, or are they showing the trailers and adverts for that far, far more than they should as every time you see it, you become a little more convinced that it's probably the worst film ever made and that everyone involved should be taken outside and made to take their chances with the wolves and bears?

Anyway, Toni knows that forming a band takes her a very long way from Porpoise Spit:

"I know you hear about actors wanting to be rock stars, and it sounds like a nightmare, but I've been singing since I was little. It's been a long time coming, and I don't apologise."

The interesting thing about actors who turn singers is their strange habit of insisting they're not trying to tailgate on their main career, but they usually always have their name in their band's. This time, it's Toni Collette and The Finish, since you ask. The Finish? It sounds like the sort of band who'd be third on the bill at a High School talent show. A rotten, rotten name.

Statler: I can't wait for The Finish
Waldorf: What do you mean? This is Toni Collete and the Finish
Stalter: I know. That's why I can't wait for them to finish

The Fins are OK, but I don't understand why she needs a whole nation as her backing band?

The Finns all came because they thought it was part of the African Trade Fair thing. Also it's cold in Finland now and it's nice and warm in the recording studio. Or did I turn over two pages at once?
