When 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' star Colin Firth was eleven years old, he spent a year living in the suburbs of St. Louis, Mo. It's a bit of trivia that I -- as a native of the St. Louis area -- feel compelled to bring up anytime that I speak with the Oscar winner. (Which has been twice.) This time, that topic drifted us to a conversation about baseball -- a sport that Firth finds "aesthetically beautiful." Beyond that bit of St. Louis reminiscing, however, here's also this more important aspect of Firth's recent life: the British actor won an Oscar back in February for 'The King's Speech,' a win that he never looked at as a foregone conclusion -- even though everyone else did.
