Actors say they do their own stunts for the integrity of the film but I did them because they looked like a lot of fun.
As soon as I see period costume, I turn off. It's like hearing drama on Radio 4.
In comic acting, to improvise effectively is quite difficult. A lot of actors can improvise up to a certain level - an entry level, which is when you see the actors having more fun than the audience.
People have made the observation, which is entirely valid, that Steve Coogan's becoming more like Alan Partridge. It's not actually true. Alan Partridge is becoming more and more like me.
I don't have a Twitter thing. I don't do Facebook. I don't do any of that. I'm holding out.
