When I first saw there wasn't already a Ralph Fiennes node I almost fell out of my chair. Having said that, let's get on with the show...
First off, from all accounts I've heard, his name is pronounced "rafe fines." He's best known for his titular role in The English Patient. His other films include:
On a more personal note, he was married to Alex Kingston (Dr. Elizabeth Corday on ER) but they are now divorced.
Oh yes, in the opinion of many people he is strikingly handsome. He also has a brother, Joseph Fiennes, who played the starring role in Shakespeare In Love (not to be confused with Lucas In Love) opposite Gwyneth Paltrow. Most agree that the elder Fiennes (Ralph) is, how you say... much hotter.
