LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Hi!
Withdrawal? :?
I don't think so!
Look at all the other forum topics here at Dirk Benedict Central!
All us Dirk fans should keep in touch!

take care,
Anne

I know what you mean Crazy Tommy T.... In the UK, it was just great to see him so publicly and everyday! We knew exactly where he was and what he was doing and he didn't let me down one bit!

I just hope that he's relaxing some place and enjoying not having camera's on him and not having to listen to those "Girls". But I want to see more of him, somewhere!

What I feel is weird is that BB didn't show the final night on the tv. Usually the day after evictions/final they have another show, to show you what went on, on the Sunday. Unless you saw the live feed, you didn't see the dominos task and they didn't show much of Saturday with the movie task and the faxes.

I thought that was odd as well. I would have liked to have seen how they spent their final day in the house :?

My other half and I have been rewatching our A Team dvds lately - maybe doing that would help your withdrawal symptoms?!

Hi everyone!
Let's not forget Dirk in "Battlestar Galactica".
I too am a fan of the A-Team.
But, I like Dirk as "Starbuck" the best.
check out: www.battlestargalacticaclub.com
That's where I get my Starbuck fix!

take care,
Anne

oh god i totally agree with the withdrawl thing... he almost became a part of the household lol...

me my mum and my brother all watched it and my mother is no fan of celebrities at all but she really liked Dirk..i miss his quick wit and sarcasm/self deprecation.

ive been searching the press after but its all about Shilpa and little concerning Dirk. I did read on the BBC that Dirk has spoken in defence of Danielle and Jade which to me shows just what a gentleman he is.

Alaska is a fun film. The scenery is just breathtaking (much like the state itself). Some of the story is a bit hokey and kid centered (which is why my 5 yr. old loves it). It's got a nice mix of family themes, adventure, decent cinematography, and humor.

Since I'm having withdrawl too, the one liners were just too good. Anyway, I just went looking to see if any interviews turned up today, I'll share something nice I happened upon:
https://www.starpulse.com/Actors/Bene...ry/SPX-004241/
Nice photo of Dirk after leaving the house. The man looks good in black.

**hopes he writes another book soon, or does a movie, or TV or something**

Hi jewels.

On the BBC interview he did, Dirk mentioned that he was thinking of writing another book, and he would talk about his Big Brother experience in it. I hope he does!

That actually showed this film on Channel 4 whilst he was in the house.

Actually Dirk was talking about this film in BB. Well he was talking about being in New Zealand filiming with Charlton Heston and I can only assume it's Alaska.

It is more of a kids film, but worth a watch!

I'm currently waiting for Alaska to be delivered from Amazon. Haven't seen it in a LONG time - am really looking forward to watching it again.

Hope you enjoy it; I got my copy 4 years ago, signed by the man himself (don't mean to sound smug, but it's a great read).

You're right, Lynne, it is a nice interview.

Thanks to you, in Scotland, for posting it so that I, in Reading, can read an interview that took place just down the road. :lol:

Frankly I am disappointed at how little of Dirks films and programmes have been on UK TV since his coming here. Am suffering serious withdrawl and if it wasn't for this site would have possibly chewed my own arm off in frustration by now.

Well the A-Team is on UKTVGOLD everyday and practically has been for the last 15 years. Battlestar Galactica is currently showing on the Bravo channel, and Alaska and Abduction of Innocence have both been shown on other channels.

I've seen Alaska been shown a couple of times, gonna have to look out for Abduction of Innocents!

Hey I got my boxset of BSG today which I got a bargain off of Ebay! I did watch it as a kid, but more so, The A Team, so it's more new to me! I am in love with Starbuck too :wink: Dirk seems to play this complicated characters very well
