The Jim is James Gandolfini – Peter is talking about the time during the rehearsals for In the Loop when he saw which way the fist was blowing and stopped things before they went too far.  

When we first heard about this, we just naturally assumed Peter cut things off when he did because neither he (nor Malcolm) had any desire to get punched in the face by Tony Fucking Soprano – which in and of itself is entirely understandable as I think most people would agree – but in light of the BRIAN BLESSED Tom Jones knock-out revelation, I think this story suddenly takes on even more significance.

(And actually, isn’t he feeling his face pretty much exactly where BRIAN BLESSED clocked him? Hmmmm.)
