Sam Huntington who plays Josh the USA werewolf in Being Human is now Twitter following the alpha wolf himself, Mr. Russell Tovey! Sam's American fans are very happy with this latest development.

I might add that these days the Tovey blog is being Twitter followed by more and more celebrities one of which is Boy George (Culture Club) who wants to keep up to date with the life and times of Russell Tovey.

The Tovey blog also has many celebrities who have helped endorse sections, one of which is Stephen Fry.

When you read through the blog you'll notice a bevy of stars who have dropped me line about Russell or added some snippets of news. I'm sure Russell appreciates it all.

The fans make this blog what it is, and as always, many thanks for your contributions.
