At this moment, I'm feeling very sorry for myself that I (and all of us who live in the States) will have to wait that much longer to see this....
Jamie makes the scruffy look work--and work and work--on MM, but I generally prefer him clean-shaven, which makes him look all the younger...and, yeah, like Matt Devlin. Sniff.
Speaking of Jamie and facial hair, I recently re-watched Daniel Deronda, which was the first role I saw him in after Hornblower. His look as Hans Meryck was a jarring shift from that of Archie Kennedy, and I remember being slightly distracted by the curls and goatee the first time I saw it. In a humorous way, yes, but it fit the character, who was artistic and slightly off-beat. And not dead.
ETA: According to Michael Ausiello's most recent spoiler column, and he usually knows what he's talking about, MM is on "the verge of cancellation". Not that anyone here is surprised, but it's disappointing nonetheless.
