Casting goes on! The new actor officially casted in the movie is british actor Steve Pemberton who will play Prosser, employee of the local concil, who wants to destroy Arthur Dent’s house. He’s also a direct male-line descendant of Genghis Kahn, though he has no idea of this.
Like Martin Freeman, Steve Pemberton is a british actor mainly known for being one of the main actors of a famous BBC TV series. He plays several parts in “The league of gentlemen” series, which he also directs and writes for. As said on imdb, it’s a “Bizzare comedy sent in the fictional English town of Royston Vasey, whose inhabitants include a transexual taxi driver, a family obsessed with cleaness that despise masurbation, an apathetic priest, a gypsy who kidnaps women to be his wives and a psychotic couple who run a local shop for local people….”. And for the BBC “The League Of Gentlemen – the comedy troupe of the same name – are Jeremy Dyson, Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, an exceptionally talented team who created, write and (with the exception of Dyson) play all the major roles, male and female. (This is one reason why the different characters play out their stories in serialised sketches, rarely crossing into each other’s storylines.) Theirs is a gothic-comedy, inspired (in places) by horror films in general, especially the work of Hammer Studios, and by The Wicker Man (1973) in particular.
Steve is now working on the movie adaptation of the “league of gentlemen” and will play in “Life and death of Peter Sellers” and “Churchill : The Hollywood years”.`
And here is Steve in “the league of gentlemen”! Very sexy. He could play Trillian too for sure!
