Strangest bit part by a UK comedian

The strangest in Ridley Scott's Napoleon was Phil Cornwell not speaking as real person Sanson the Executioner at the start of the film. I wish I'd had a chance to ask him about it at the Comic Strip event the other week. Not shown: a bleeding dismembered head.

The part isn't written as comedic but he plays it that way anyway, love his schtick but it's quite out of place in an otherwise very grim film.

Were you watching that on the Legend channel Shax? 'Cos it was on there the other night.

Ooh, weird coincidence! No, I found it on YouTube. Nothing like spending sunny summer evenings with the curtains drawn watching folk horror :)

Is this Maisie Adam playing the role of "Person making a small claim" in The Sheriffs are Coming at 10:12?

Possibly already mentioned and Irish but Risteard Cooper in Batman begins, playing some slob cop iirc

George White

Batman Begins cast a lot of Irish actors in Dublin, though. Hence the appearance of right-wing gobshite Terry McMahon.

Wrong eye colour (assuming it's still the same actor for the close-up at 10:14).

Have Ross Lee and Maisie Adam ever been in the same room together?

Good to see David Bowie finally got another acting role. You never know, he might get his own sitcom on Netflix.

Oh yeah forgot all about that!



Another one I'm not sure has been mentioned in this thread yet that I forgot all about, Vas Blackwood ("that damned elusive Sha-a-dow!") in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels:



It's been a long time since I watched Lock, Stock,  just looking it up I forgot Danny John-Jules was in it and don't think I ever copped before that Victor McGuire of Bread/Goodnight Sweethear fame plays the scouse fella, there's also Rob Brydon as a traffic warden - and Irish boxer Steve Collins!

George White

I had either forgot that Collins was in it, or never knew.
That recent doc about him vs Eubank is a doozy. Even some of it is uncomfortable. Collins saying that Eubank 'isn't English' does show his Northside roots a bit too much, if you know what I mean (that wasn't intended to be a Bruno ref BTW, Harry).

Glebe

Fuck me. He isn't white in other words.

George White

He literally asked him, 'Why don't you consider yourself African?'

Incongruous rather than strange, but I discovered recently that Bob Todd and Graham Stark were both in Superman III, and Jim Broadbent was in Superman IV.


Eric Idle popped up in the 80s Transformers movie:
