"Gambon takes 'role he was born to play' as glorious clown Falstaff

     Sir Michael Gambon is making his long-awaited theatrical debut as Sir
     John Falstaff, Shakespeare's most glorious clown and
wit....London's theatre critics have
     been keenly anticipating the application of Gambon's undisputed talent
     to the role of Prince Hal's disreputable sidekick in Henry IV."

hHardly "undisputed," given the tepid reception of his Antony and Lear.

     --Charles Weinstein
