NEW YORK - A dashing young English royal falls for a beautiful commoner, and their love becomes a nationwide sensation that forever alters the face of the monarchy. No, their names aren't Will and Kate, but rather King Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville. The year is 1464, nearly a decade into the Wars of the Roses, a time when (for those of you who dozed off during ninth grade history class) the English monarchy was violently contested between two competing branches within the House of Plantaganet.

Jeremy Irons stars as the ruthless Rodrigo Borgia, who became Pope Alexander VI, in Showtime's period drama"The Borgias," now in its second season. You really seem like you're having fun with this role. I'm glad about that. I've always believed that in the theater or movies, whatever, the audience's enjoyment is increased if the actors seem to be enjoying what they're doing. What's fun about the Borgia pope? The great thing about doing series television is you have time.

"Swann in Love," the last offering in Golden West College's spring foreign film series, is flawed in much the same way as other recent film adaptations of major novels. Like James Ivory's interpretations of Henry James' "The Bostonians" and "The Europeans," this 1984 movie condensation of Marcel Proust's "Swann's Way" is ultimately dissatisfying as either a literary appreciation or a cinematic experience.

Jeremy Irons' impressive gallery of distinctive historical characters includes his Oscar-winning portrait of chilly socialite Claus Van Bulow in "Reversal of Fortune" and Georgia O'Keeffe's husband, Alfred Stieglitz, in the TV movie "O'Keeffe. " Although Irons has demonstrated ease in slipping into these real-life personas, he had surprising reservations about taking on the ambitious, diabolical Rodrigo Borgia, also known as Pope Alexander VI, in Showtime's historical drama "The Borgias," which premieres Sunday.

Best actor Jeremy Irons, speaking to reporters backstage at Shrine Auditorium, was asked whether he expected to have any contact with Claus von Bulow, whom he played in "Reversal of Fortune." "We may meet at dinner sometime," he said. "I'd love to meet him and tell him what he's all about. But the man's had enough invasion of his privacy without my calling him." A female reporter asked the actor what influence, if any, his wife, English actress Sinead Cusack, has had on his success.

It sounds like a joke now, but Jeremy Irons can remember a night walking back from the theater during his student days in England when the principal of his drama school turned to him and said, "It's a great shame, 30 years ago you would have had a great career on the screen." "I didn't have a face we thought the camera would like," Irons tries to explain, "because it was too old-fashioned in a way.

Those lips. Those eyes. That dry English disdain. It may be a mane instead of a hairline that's receding, but the ironic lion who is the standout villain in this summer's Disney extravaganza is still a dead ringer for Jeremy Irons, in voice and in subtly animated facial caricature. As the scheming, murderous Scar, who'll stop at nothing in his quest to steal the throne of the animal kingdom, Irons is all claws . . . Claus von Bulow, that is.

Long before she won her supporting actress Oscar for "The Fighter" at this year's Academy Awards, Melissa Leo was a television veteran. She played Kay Howard on "Homicide: Life on the Streets" for five seasons before largely moving on to feature films — and almost never looking back. But on the set of 2003's "21 Grams," she had an epiphany. "I was working with Sean Penn and Naomi Watts, and it dawned on me that while I was intimidated by working with [top level] film stars, it occurred to me that more eyes had probably seen me on the smaller screen than had seen them on the big screen," she says.

Hot on the heels of the departed "The Tudors," "The Borgias" arrives on Showtime this Sunday. I won't say I saw it coming, but now that it's here — it's "The Tudors" meets "The Sopranos," a point underscored by its tag line, "The original crime family" — it seems all but inevitable. Indeed, this is only the first of two series on that murderous Renaissance clan coming your way this year. The second, Tom Fontana's "Borgia," is being made with French money, with former HBO honcho Chris Albrecht along as an executive producer.

In his article on Jeremy Irons and the film "Kafka" ("Eyeing His Options," Dec. 1), Sean Mitchell describes Franz Kafka as a "tormented Austrian author." I hope Irons doesn't play Kafka with a Claus von Bulow accent, because Kafka, in fact, was born and lived virtually his entire life in my native country, Czechoslovakia, a small country near, but not, Austria.

After presenting a TV movie about famed fashion designer Coco Chanel in September, Lifetime Television said Thursday it was embarking on another biographical film: "Georgia O'Keeffe."

EVERY film set has an undercurrent of whispers, heated speculation about who is sleeping with whom. And on a scorching day last summer at the Lithuanian Film Studio in this quiet Eastern European city, everyone had an opinion about a certain Elizabeth, leading lady and reported resident virgin. Had she or hadn't she? And if so, with whom? Was it dashing Leicester, her trusted advisor and constant companion? Or the dazzling young Essex, her latest obsession?
