That's Gene Hunt, he's a fictional character love .
Philip Glenister on the other hand is yummy scrummy and real.
I do apologise, I suspect all this nonsense is the very strong lager I've been drinking.
I know its gone to my head as I've just bought some slicks for my MTB without dithering about the price and which ones to get. 1.5 Schwlabe City Jets and no messing!
Hunt is being made out to be a bigger (and genuine) peanut in series 3 A to A.
Glenister is, without disrespect, perhaps a 1 character actor (like most of the cast imho). He plays Hunt well but straight down the line. I heard him on the radio once, talking about the role, and I found it quite disturbing that he actually liked Gene Hunt. He said, and I paraphrase, that he liked that he could say all the stuff that we weren't allowed to say anymore.
