The Inbetweeners (TV Series 2008–2010) Poster

(2008–2010)

Trivia

Matt Smith auditioned for the role of Will, but lost out to Simon Bird. Iain Morris recalled - "He was brilliant - down to the last two for Will, I think. I think he was a bit too dashing! That's why he'll be brilliant in Doctor Who (2005) - he's got something sort of heroic about him. He had the humour, but what I think Simon Bird has got is a sort of vulnerability and so when he's doing these terrible rants at people, you know he's the loser! Whereas there's something very leading man and heroic about Matt Smith."
'Greg Davies' (IV) (Mr. Gilbert) was an actual real-life teacher for 13 years. A career which he gave up to become a stand-up comedian.
The four main characters are in their mid to late teens, but when the first episode was aired in May 2008, the actors playing them varied in age from 20 (James Buckley) to 24 (Joe Thomas).
This is the first sitcom created for E4. After Skins (2007), it is only the second television series created for the channel.
Dominic Cooper auditioned for the role of Will.
Before starring in "The Inbetweeners", Simon Bird and Joe Thomas were in a comedy sketch together at the Cambridge Footlights.
The car scenes were filmed with a rig on actual roads and sometimes took entire days to film.
The fake ID that Jay uses in episode 1 is a real Australian drivers license from Victoria, and the address is real too.
