Colin Firth‘s name has bandied about relentlessly this holiday season, assigned the credit and/or blame for the current ugly Christmas sweater rage. Firth is innocent, of course, having been forced into a now-famous abominable reindeer jumper for his role as Mark Darcy in ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary.’ Where Firth is guilty is in how adorable he looked in the dang thing, making the rest of us think that the sweaters themselves were less horrible.
