There are two Movie Habits right now. One is the old faithful movie magazine you’ve been reading on the web and on your palm pilot for years. The other one is the Wentworth Miller fan page.

Miller was in Denver in 2003 for the Denver International Film Festival, promoting The Human Stain, in which he played the younger self of Anthony Hopkins’ character. That’s when we caught him. His interview has been on our site for two and a half years, mostly collecting dust. That all changed when the TV show Prison Break became popular.

Now, if you search for “Wentworth Miller” on Google, our interview with him comes up as the fourth hit, above the Fox broadcasting home page, where fans can read all about the TV show Prison Break.

Since we’ve started our “post a comment” feature, Miller’s page has garnered, by far, the most comments, with 29 postable comments to date.

It’s both flattering and discouraging that Movie Habit is getting so much traffic from a single interview with an actor. On the one hand, traffic is what web sites are all about, and the more the merrier for those of us who pay the bills and write the stories. On the other hand, the years of work from a score of writers amount to a blip compared to the popularity of that one interview.

Part of me is cynical about the adoring fans. The strains from Bye Bye Birdie echo in my head as “We love you Wentworth, oh yes we do....” But I remind myself to be humble and grateful that, at least for the moment, Movie Habit has a small corner of a very bright spotlight. We won’t always have it, so we need to appreciate and enjoy it now, while we can. And we can only hope that some Miller fans might find some reason to come back and become regular readers.

In the meantime, if you are a regular reader (and chances are, if you’re reading this, you are a regular), thank you for sticking with us all along. And check out our interview with Miller, since you might have missed it.
