Julian Sands is one of those blond, fair-skinned, blue-eyed English blokes who plays a twit as well or better than the next classically trained British actor. But he's sick and tired of those roles. On a visit to Hollywood to publicize his newest movie, "Warlock," the handsome 32-year-old performer said, "Upper- class twits are not what I like to do. I had an opportunity to prove I can do other things in 'A Room With a View.'

For its 2013-14 season, the Broad Stage in Santa Monica will present appearances by actress Patti LuPone, opera singer Bryn Terfel, violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and the Los Angeles dance group Bodytraffic. Members of the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela will also perform in a concert during the coming season, which the Broad announced Monday.  Leaders at the Broad also announced a new initiative designed to bolster the company's jazz offerings. A new Jazz Council, which will curate performances and events, will consist of Quincy Jones, Herb Alpert, Ruth Price, Jeff Gauthier, Joon Lee, Daniel Seeff, Luciana Souza and Ben Wendel.

Julian Sands describes his latest movie, "Warlock," as "sort of bubble, bubble, toil and trouble caldron of humor and horror and spectacular and effects." The blond, blue-eyed Briton plays the title role in the fantasy film, a pony-tailed disciple of Satan who time-travels from 17th-Century New England to contemporary Los Angeles. Sands doesn't take "Warlock" very seriously.

THERE'S something about being bad that feels so good for Julian Sands. The British-born actor plays Vladimir Bierko, the villain du jour on Fox's "24," which wraps its season Monday. "It's all about the atmosphere and the character," Sands says. "Bierko's down there in his lair, with his minions, like some sort of a messianic tarantula. It's been so much fun." Life away from the camera isn't bad either. He has a house outside London but tends to spend the school year at his L.A.

Kudos to Jack Mathews for his victory in this year's "Name the British Actor" competition. Turning in a characteristically sterling performance, he correctly identified the man featured in the still from "A Room With a View" as actor Julian Sands (Calendar, March 30). Mathews narrowly edged out Charles A. Johnson, who cited Daniel Day Lewis as winning the New York Film Critics Circle's award for best supporting actor for his performance in "Mona Lisa" (March 29). Unfortunately, in a competition as fierce as this, even the slightest detail must be taken into consideration, so Johnson's chances were somewhat diminished by the minor technicality that Daniel Day Lewis did not appear in that film.

There is something engagingly scruffy and disheveled about Julian Sands. His clothes appear to have been plucked at random from some mission barrel in Skid Row, possibly late at night after the decent stuff had gone. And, in conversation, it soon becomes clear that the only impact this British actor cares to make is on the screen as an actor. Well, he's doing just fine. It was Sands who romanced the uptight Helena Bonham-Carter in that stylish Merchant-Ivory movie "A Room With a View."

In the period piece "End of Summer," Jacqueline Bisset is radiant as a rich, aristocratic turn-of-the-century spinster who unexpectedly has a second chance at love. The hourglass silhouette, the long skirts, the leg o' mutton sleeves of the gowns of the era are highly becoming on Bisset in this 1995 Showtime production now receiving theatrical release.

"Boxing Helena," a graphic film about a woman whose arms and legs are amputated by her doctor after an auto accident and then is kept in a box, has become the latest high-profile movie recommended for the adults-only NC-17 rating. Carl Mazzocone, the producer of "Boxing Helena," said he was informed of the NC-17 rating on Monday. He resubmitted the film on Wednesday for the ratings board to view again with "three seconds" trimmed. "We had no choice but to go for an R rating.
