Still Game duo team up with River City for Children in Need sketch

30 October 2014 4:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The cast of River City will team up with Still Game's stars to film an exclusive sketch for this year's BBC Children in Need appeal.

The sketch will see Jack (Ford Kiernan) and Victor (Greg Hemphill) arrive in Shieldinch after winning a competition to watch filming at River City.

Viewers can expect to see some comedy moments as the pensioners interact with several members of the cast and assist with the directors.

Kiernan said: "We're obviously delighted that the two worlds of Still Game and River City are going to collide for BBC's Children in Need. It'll be a strange experience for Jack and Victor to leave a real place like Craiglang for a made-up BBC place like Shieldinch.

"We don't want to give too much away because the element of surprise is everything after all!"

Mary Duffy, National Head of BBC Children in Need, said: "This is the »

Still Game Live review theatre on an extraordinary scale

22 September 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Sse Hydro, Glasgow

Even in the posh seats, it feels more like being at a rally, but Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill transform the energy in this vast room into something special

The last time I saw Still Game on stage was at the Brunton in Musselburgh, a theatre with a capacity of 300. That was in the late 1990s and now, after six television series, sundry seasonal specials and a seven-year hiatus, Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill have built up the pulling power to play a 21-night run at the Hydro in front of 12,000 people a time.

This is theatre on a scale I have never seen. Its so big, Im not even sure theatre is the right word for it. The stage is dominated by three giant screens showing a sophisticated live edit of the sitcom action below. Even in the posh seats, it feels more like being a studio audience. »

Frankie Boyle makes film debut as recovering alcoholic in Gasping

5 July 2014 2:03 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Frankie Boyle will play a recovering alcoholic in an upcoming short film.

Gasping - Boyle's debut film - mirrors the Mock the Week star's battle with alcoholism. Boyle stopped drinking at the age of 26, and is now teetotal.

Boyle stars alongside Still Game's Gavin Mitchell, who plays a fellow attendee of Alcoholics Anonymous, and Gianni Capaldi, who plays his best friend.

Capaldi told film website Action Elite: "[Frankie's character] gives up drinking in this flick and he loses his job because he had a drink problem, so I offer him a job to work at a distillery I owned.

"So all I'm doing is reminiscing about the days when we used to party and drink. We went to Japan and everywhere else in the world and I'm trying to get him back on the drink. I'm that obnoxious, annoying friend who is continuously trying."

Director Greg Hemphill told The Scotsman that »
