January 19, 1998 | JOHN CLARK, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
Unlike a lot of actors, John Hannah is as interesting as the characters he plays. In "Four Weddings and a Funeral," his breakthrough film, he was Simon Callow's winsome lover, who memorably recites Auden at Callow's funeral. In his new film, "Sliding Doors," which opened this year's Sundance Film Festival, he manages to woo the lovely, swan-like Gwyneth Paltrow with a mixture of self-deprecating humor and common decency. A potent combination.
