James’s first role was an admirable attempt to try something new, playing young Del Boy in morose ‘Only Fools and Horses’ prequel ‘Rock and Chips’. Sadly, it never quite found its tone, while his turn in an Orange cinema ad for ‘The Expendables 2’ was no great stretch for this amiable goof.
A cameo in misfiring 2011 ‘Comic Strip’ revival ‘The Hunt for Tony Blair’ is about as funny as it’s got for James.
We don’t doubt his application, but when microbudget Eurohorror ‘Site 146’ appears to be James’s only major project on the horizon (other than the newly announced ‘Inbetweeners Movie’ sequel), one rather fears the worst.
We spoke to dozens of comedy writers, comedy directors, comic actors and stand-up comedians – including Dan Aykroyd, Richard Curtis, Edgar Wright, Kim Noble, Stephen Merchant, Jo Brand and many, many more – and asked them to share with us their favourite comedy films of all time. Can you guess which film emerged as the number one choice?
