UK film star Ewan McGregor is threatening to take legal action against those responsible for bogus entries in his name on Twitter.

Almost 200,000 people have been following what they thought were regular updates by McGregor, but a spokesman has confirmed that the Twitter postings, known as “Tweets”, are not genuine.

Perhaps the impersonator was also responsible for his excruciatingly smug turn in the Davidoff Adventure aftershave adverts, or his accent in Star Wars.
