Random Acts: Scarlett still loves champagne, the Fonz gets an OBE, Nicolas Cage is terrorised by a naked Fudgesicle man

Well, Scarlett Johansson’s busy this week dealing with some naughty hackers, something that has clearly revived her love of champagne. So we’re going to have to turn to some new random actors to help out this week.

Henry Winkler

Henry Winkler, aka The Fonz, has arbitrarily been made an Honorary Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Which is quite random.

But it’s Nicolas Cage, the crowned King of Random, who has chosen this week to recount his night of terror at the hands of a naked man eating a Fudgesicle at the foot of his bed. I don’t think anyone’s going to top that. Well done Nicolas.
