Actor Colin Firth is garnering much praise for his performance in the new film A Single Man. It's directed and written by fashion designer Tom Ford, and is based on the novel by Christopher Isherwood. Firth is probably most well known for playing the ultimate Mr. Darcy in both Pride and Prejudice and Bridget Jones's Diary. He talks to Renee Montagne about his role in the movie.
