Here’s the trailer for the upcoming movie Svengali. This movie based on the web series stars Jonny Owen, Martin Freeman and Matt Berry
VIDEO FRIDAY — ONE DAY (2011)
Another of Matt’s straight roles. In this film based on the book by David Nicholls, starring Anne Hathaway, Matt plays an agent to Jim Sturgess’ character Dexter. I like the irony. In the beginning of his career, Matt was a presenter on a show about video games, which eventually he got fired from. Now here he is playing an agent who has to tell his client that he’s fired from being a presenter on a video game show.
Celebrities have called for BBC to stick with the wacky show - but Bob Mortimer insists there’s nothing to worry about
End of the road for Vic and Bob’s latest show?
However, there’s concern that the BBC sitcom may have been axed after just one series.
Veteran star and national treasure Stephen Fry tweeted about the rumours, describing such a decision as “insane”.
He wrote: “The BBC I thought, can’t go more insane: now I hear they planning to axe Vic and Bob’s House of Fools. What? Tell them they’re mad. #saveHoF (sic)”
Artist Damien Hirst also took to Twitter to vent about the speculation, using the same hashtag and possibly helping to start a social networking revolution in a bid to save the popular programme.
He said: “It’s Vic and Bob’s world, we just live in it #saveHoF”
However, creator Bob Mortimer himself played down the speculation.
As well as claiming he’s “heard nothing” regarding the show being taken off the air, he insisted BBC bosses are big fans of the sitcom.
He wrote: “I’ve heard nothing about HOF being axed… I think the people at the beeb really like it!”

A man and his bass.
This is literally more arousing than any porn could ever be.
MATT MUSIC MONDAY — LAST LOAD HOME from Summer Sun
Here’s another gem from that wonderful EP that Matt released in August 2010. Men out in the woods, perhaps a hunting party, and they begin to disappear one by one. For some reason this always felt like a Stephen King story to me. A dream performance of this for me would be having Stephen read the verses and Matt perform the music and sing the choruses.
