Things have changed since 1966, and Charles Shyer's remake of Alfie reminds us of just how much. The movie that introduced Michael Caine as a Cockney womanizer at the dawn of the Playboy era played like a warning label on the sexual revolution. Compared with the original, the new Alfie, which stars twinkly eyed Jude Law as a British limo driver in Manhattan, is a bright gumball skittering across a marble floor. We're meant to attribute the remake's decidedly chirpier, breezier tone to feminism and the all-around social progress of the intervening four decades.

Has any other movie actor sustained a busy and diverse career as well as Michael Caine? Gene Hackman and Samuel L. Jackson must be the only other contenders. At age 69, Caine has made more than 130 major movie and TV appearances (not counting guest spots like his cameos on Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In). More important, he has managed to pull off the feat of becoming at once an identifiable star whose name alone evokes a Cockney cool and a versatile character actor. As he swings from the extremes of colorful surrogate-fatherhood in The Cider House Rules (1999)

English actor Christopher “Kit” Harington, 25, has gone from a virtual unknown to international heartthrob in the course of a year, due to his role as Jon Snow on the HBO hit show “Game of Thrones.” In this Q&A, he talks about power, the rain in Northern Ireland, and how he dislikes the show being called “The Sopranos of Middle Earth.” Had you read the books before you were cast in the show? I hadn't read the books. I got this pilot, though, and I read it. I knew it was HBO, so I knew it would be of a certain quality.

Bay Theatre Company opens A Man of No Importance today, the second musical in the troupe's four-year history. The reasons, said company co-founder and artistic director Lucinda Merry-Browne: The cost is significantly higher than the typical show's budget of $20,000 to $30,000, and the 11-member cast is as big as the stage can comfortably accommodate. However, this show was irresistible. "This is a beautiful, uplifting show celebrating love in all forms with 24 lilting musical numbers brought to life by music director Anita O'Connor and choreographer Jen Kohlhafer," Merry-Browne said.
