I think Sam Neill was a good choice for Wolsey. He looks just like him (at least, from the portraits I've seen of the real Cardinal Wolsey), and he does a good job acting just like I would imagine Wolsey to act.
8 out of 9 found this valuable. Do you?

QUOTE,"Perhaps we should look at somewhere else where they recently used the time-old bribe of tax cuts, and see how it worked. In 2000, George W. Bush, under the reasonable sounding 'compassionate conservatism', offered huge tax cuts. And he delivered. Take a look at America now. The rich are certainly richer, but the economy is in the tank, a healthy surplus has been converted into a massive deficit, and the U.S. is a place that cannot even afford the basics. Like maintaining levees in low-lying Louisiana. Might I suggest that tax cuts led indirectly to the flooding of New Orleans?, UNQUOTE
Although I do not like very much acting I must admit he did a very good job in The Tudors. And his compromised speech make him a giant. It is not easy and you pay the toll for speaking up in Big Brother Hollywood.
