Danger! 50,000 Nick Frosts!

by Suw on April 26, 2005

You may remember that last year I showed a little bit of interest in a British zombie flick called Shaun of the Dead, so it probably won't surprise you to hear that when my mates Ewan and Cameron asked me if I wanted to help them interview Nick Frost for The Podcast Network's Movie Show I had to think long and hard about whether to accept or not. Long. And hard. Oh, yes.
So, to cut a 1 hr 22 min story short, this morning I spent a very happy hour and a half talking to Nick and Ewan, (Cam had to bail for technical reasons), about everything from how pantwettingly scary it was for him to go from being a waiter to a real proper actor on Spaced, to how pantwettingly terrifying dying on your arse in front of 200 people when you're trying to be a stand-up comic is, to shaved bollocks. We did cover a few non-crotch related issues to, but I don't want to spoil the show for you.
Nick was a delight to talk to, and an absolute darling the whole way through, even when we were having a few problems getting the technology to behave – it was a telephone/Skype combination, and getting the levels right was a pig, if Ewan's muttering was anything to go by.
We have to do some jiggery-pokery with the audio before we broadcast, but the show should be up soon. (Well, I say 'we', I mean 'Cameron'. He who gets most turkey gets most string.) I'll post a link when it's up.
So, huge thanks to Nick! Sir, you are a star!

I bet he was really dull and sombre and you're just saying he wasn't to make us all feel even more jealous. Did you get a chance to mention your starstruck moment with Simon Pegg?

Oddly enough, I refrained from saying 'Hi, yes, I met your best buddy and was totally gobsmacked by his intelligence, charm and beautiful eyes'.
Funny, that.

turkey? string? I'd be happy right now for some stuffing! 🙂
