Here's What The Cast Of "The History Boys" Looked Like Then Vs Now
"How do I define history? It's just one fuckin' thing after another."
Now: Since leaving the shy, sensitive, and heartbroken Posner behind him, Barnett has been rather busy. Recently he landed the title role in a BBC America’s adaptation of Douglas Adams’ Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Before that he appeared in the BBC’s critically acclaimed Twenty Twelve and Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. Unlike some other History Boys alumni, Barnett has continued to consistently ply his trade on stage – including significant stints in Richard III and Twelfth Night. Hector would be proud.
