This week on the NPR game show, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!, host Peter Sagal's guest contestant is movie director Guy Ritchie, who among his many films has directed the current King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, both recent Sherlock Holmes films, Swept Away, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and came to fame with the well-regarded independent Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Yes, I know he's promoting his film, but it's one thing to do promotion, and it's another thing for the British Guy Ritchie of all people to so-unexpectedly appear on a radio popular culture game show. And for all his tough-guy movies, and tough early life, he comes across as quite charming and thoroughly self-effacing. And funny.
