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."

The film stars Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, and Jessica Biel. For cast list and information on this 2010 theatrical release visit the Internet Movie Database for details:

Wow, great news, Tracy! Not that I'm too fond of the whole 'new A-Team' idea in general, because for me the guys are just not replaceable, but it's nice that not only Dwight gets his cameo appearance in the new film. Now I'm wondering if Mr. T will be in it, too?

And Dirk back on stage is great! Oh, I would love to see that, but the UK is a bit far to hop over for a night at the theatre. All the best, Dirk, you will be a great Columbo, right down to the cigar

Dirk as Columbo? Now that's an interesting stretch! Used to hang out at a couple Colombo sites early on, doing the usual photo thing. Peter Falk was a character. Always cracked me up that later on in the show, Carolyn Jones played a character named... ready? Rita Ratcliffe. Always wondered about that one. I know Falk appreciated the pix, but? Still have the script.

Ought to be interesting to see how Dirk plays it... all rumpled and disingenuous or very clever. Even at his clowning best, he seems too smart to appear like the rumpled Columbo.

Any chance this play will hit the US?? Now THAT would be a fun trip to take! Get a buncha peeps together and go see it. Really something to look forward to!

No Canadian dates sorry as the play is for a UK theater company, so he'll be touring with the production from March until June of 2010.

So if he is touring with the production then I wonder which parts of the UK he will be at!
Anywhere near Southern England?!

My suggestion would be to join the theater company's mailing list via the Columbo play's website:

www.columbo-prescription-murder.com

That way you can keep track of news, tour dates and locations when they're announced

Great news, especially for those of us in the UK! Thanks for letting us know Tracy. Will have to try and get to see it so hopefully the tour will be somewhere within driving distance!

I think I'll have to go and see this next year. I can see Dirk as Columbo, the cigars, the old raincoat.

Nice!! Sort of back to the stage roots again for Dirk. Hope it will be a hit! (Then it might be taped and broadcasted ... or it's just wishful thinking on my part. )

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! I've just booked tickets for the show in Cardiff. It's going to be a slightly early birthday present. I'm finding it a bit surreal. Is Dirk really going to be on stage in my capital? The theatre I pass everytime I go shopping in Cardiff?
Anyone else booked tickets yet?
