Also, there's the League of Obscure British Actors site, with all sorts of other possibilities: http://www.ar.com.au/~jriddler/ba/league.html
(Some of those actors are really not very obscure ... Sean Connery, for example).
Connery is on a list of "other" British actors, that also includes the Fiennes brothers, Robbie Coltrane, even Cary Grant!
The "obscure ones" include Sean Pertwee (son of a notable Dr. Who) who was in some of the Cadfael, and Jude Law that I just watched on DVD in "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." Neither is a Holland candidate, however.
