Smooth Talking Coffee Man

Transvestite, criminal, and king, it can safely be said that British actor Anthony Head has tried it all. He really is an all singing, dancing and talking man. I remember him from when he featured in a series of coffee adverts for Nescafe Gold Blend in the 80's and 90's — please excuse me for not using the word "commercial" but we are referring to England - The adverts crossed Stateside to become Taster's Choice. Since then, Anthony Head has become well known around the world for his role in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Listen to Scott Simon's conversation with Anthony Head on this week's show. Below you can see Anthony in action as the smooth talking coffee man — take a break and have refresher.
