Paul Verhoeven Ambassador for Movember

Tuesday, 15 November 2011

Paul Verhoeven

Paul Verhoeven is the latest Profile member to sign on as an ambassador for the annual Movember campaign. The campaign sees men growing moustaches during November to raise vital awareness and funding for men’s health issues – specifically prostate cancer and male depression.

Last Thursday Paul went in to renowned Melbourne men’s barber RockIt, which specialises in traditional barber practices, and had his Mo sculpted, groomed and waxed to support the cause.

Paul says his own experience with depression is one of the reasons that he is supporting men’s health.

“Depression is something I suffered from, and awareness is such a colossal part of fixing a problem. And because I appear to have inherited a rather overactive wookie genome, and were I to squander it on old time villainy/cowboy lookalike contests, I’d not be able to live with myself,” he explains.

The growth (who has the character of a country gentleman) even has its own twitter account, #PaulsEpicStache.

Last year the campaign raised a total of $AUS 72 million for men’s health globally, with AUS $24.6 million collected in Australia alone.

 

Darren McMullen to host The Magicians on BBC One in the UK

Tuesday, 08 November 2011

Darren McMullen

Darren is set to debut as host on his first UK primetime show The Magicians, which returns to BBC One in 2012 with a show-stopping live new format and an astonishing line up of magicians.

“I can’t wait to host live shows here. The Magicians is a huge entertainment show and talked about around the world so I can’t wait to be at the heart of it. Being a live show, the pressure really will be on the magicians and whether or not they can pull off dangerous stunts in front of a live audience. I’m certainly going to have to have my wits about me!” Darren explains.

Following last year’s ratings success of over 6 million viewers, the 2012 series will be extended to six 75-minute programmes which will transmit live. This will be the first time a magic series has been transmitted live on the BBC in over 20 years.

Each magician will be paired with a different celebrity partner each week. Together they will perform three illusions, both live and pre-recorded, from the classic to the never-attempted before, after which their performances will be put to the viewers’ vote. The magician and celebrity pair with the fewest votes will then have to face a live and dramatic forfeit.

The magicians will need to dazzle, delight and excel beyond their own favoured speciality, be it escapology, illusion or sleight of hand card tricks, to ensure they get the audience’s support for the live vote.
