Lord of Highland Flings...

Sean Bean, the dashing hero Boromir in Lord of the Rings, will join Samantha Bond on the London stage as Shakespeare's most famous Scottish couple, the Macbeths. The actor, who will appear in flashbacks in the next Lord of the Rings instalment, The Two Towers, told me a while ago how he was "itching" to return to the theatre after a ten-year absence.

Ms Bond plays Miss Moneypenny in the 007 series, famous for her banter with Bond. In the film, Tomorrow Never Dies, she quipped: "You always were a cunning linguist, James."

However, the lines she'll deliver as Lady Macbeth have been around much longer. Who can forget "Out, damned spot! Out, I say!"?
The play opens at the Albery Theatre in November - the same month as Bond film Die Another Day hits our cinemas
