Martin Freeman on Sherlock series 4: "Piss or get off the pot"

11 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Martin Freeman has admitted that scheduling a fourth series of Sherlock is proving "hard to do".

The John Watson actor - soon to play Richard III on the West End - told Digital Spy that initial plans to work on new episodes following his theatrical run have now been scrapped.

"It's very hard to get together," he said. "But it's one of those things where you have to at some point just go, 'We're going to do it now' - otherwise we could be having this conversation in three years.

He added: "There comes a point where you've got to piss or get off the pot."

Martin Freeman: 'I'm glad we didn't ruin The Office with reunion'

17 April 2014 4:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Martin Freeman has revealed that he is glad The Office has not returned since it ended in 2003.

The Sherlock actor - who played Tim Canterbury in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's BBC sitcom - said that he would worry it would be "ruined" if they made a new series.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live's Richard Bacon: "I'm very proud of The Office, if it's on I still watch it and will laugh. But one of the best things Ricky and Steve did was ending it and making it finite and making it something people look back and go, 'I wish there was more of that', as opposed to doing loads and people saying, 'I wish there was less of this'."

He continued: "I'm glad not to be doing The Office any more, not for any career reason or any selfish reason, but as a punter, just as a viewer. »

Benedict Cumberbatch: no Star Wars or Doctor Who, but a licence to thrill? | Media Monkey

Sherlock star denies he'll appear in Jj Abrams film or play Time Lord, but is reported to have been offered role as Ian Fleming

Another day, another Benedict Cumberbatch casting rumour. The Sherlock star had been linked to a role in Jj Abrams' new Star Wars movie, but shot down hopes on the weekend when he told fans at the Oz Comic Con "I would've liked a part in Jj's [Abrams] new Star Wars but it won't happen sadly." He also told the audience that he's unlikely to appear in Doctor Who: "I'm never gonna play the Doctor and nothing to do with the Whoniverse." Now Hollywood blog The Tracking Board claims he has been offered the starring role in an Ian Fleming biopic detailing the origin stories of James Bond. Monkey hopes the rumour turns out to be true Cumberbatch could certainly carry off wearing Fleming's trademark bow tie. »

FX’s ‘Fargo’ Debuts With 2.65M Viewers

16 April 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

There was a lot of snow, a broken nose, some low temperatures and a few dead bodies on the debut of Fargo on FX last night. There were also a lot of eyeballs catching the action: The 10 Pm premiere of the limited series based on the Coen brothers’ Oscar-winning 1996 pic was watched by 2.65 million total viewers and 1.02 million among adults 18-49. The 97-minute debut was down 12% from the 3.04 million who tuned in for the 91-minute premiere of The Bridge on July 10 last year in the same time slot. That cross-cultural police drama about a serial killer on the U.S./Mexico border garnered 1.16 million among adults 18-49. Over its three plays last night, Fargo pulled in 4.15 million total viewers with 1.79 million adults 18-49. “We are incredibly proud of the towering creative achievement by Noah Hawley and everyone involved with Fargo,” John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions, said today in a statement. »

Billy Bob Thornton talks 'Fargo,' 'Entourage,' and why he'll never direct again

15 April 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Billy Bob Thornton has played some devilish characters, but never one as frightening and fascinating as Fargo’s Lorne Malvo. Malvo is a mysterious grim reaper of sorts who lives by a strict code of malevolence — one that has a way of rubbing off on the innocent souls around him. In the premiere of FX’s new series, which airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. Et, a chance encounter with pathetic pushover Lester Nygaard (Sherlock’s Martin Freeman) leads to some very bad things in the small town of Bemidji, Minn.

Review: FX's 'Fargo' reinvents the Coen brothers movie

15 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"I don't watch movies," declares Lorne Malvo, the slippery, malevolent figure at the center of FX's new "Fargo" series. (The first of 10 episodes debuts tonight at 10; I've seen the first four.) The line rings true to what we have learned about Malvo, a professional hitman and amateur troublemaker who takes pleasure in encouraging people's worst impulses to see what will happen. But it also functions as a sly acknowledgment of the large shadow "Fargo" the movie casts over "Fargo" the TV show. Created by Noah Hawley (a "Bones" alum who created the charming but short-lived ABC cop show "The Unusuals," starring a then-unknown Jeremy Renner), the new "Fargo" takes place in the same frozen Minnesota winter of the Coen brothers' Oscar-winning film(*), though it is not a remake of that film's story. Still, there are many nods to the movie both big and small — each episode, for instance, opens with »

Martin Freeman: 'I don't want to live in a part forever'

14 April 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Martin Freeman has spoken about his decision not to take on long-term television roles.

The actor told Entertainment Weekly that he doesn't want to "live in a part forever" and gets "joy" from taking on a variety of roles.

"It's not like a life choice where I just want to live in a part forever," he explained. "That's the joy of the job for me: In a little while, I'll be playing somebody else with a different load of people."

Freeman is soon to star in FX drama Fargo, which is inspired by the 1996 Coen brothers film of the same name.

On his decision to take the part, he said: "When I was sent the script for Fargo, Joe, my American agent, said, 'I know it's TV, but this is ten episodes - it's finite'.

Benedict Cumberbatch Won’t Ever Be Seen In ‘Star Wars’ Or ‘Doctor Who’

14 April 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Steven Moffat, the producer of the TV series Sherlock and J.J. Abrams, director of Star Trek Into Darkness both have their work cut out for them at the moment, with Moffat currently working on Doctor Who and J.J. Abrams working on the new Star Wars sequel trilogy.

In recent news there has been a lot of speculation about Cumberbatch’s potential involvement in the up and coming projects as he has worked with both Moffat and J.J Abrams in the past. However, over the weekend Cumberbatch participated in a Q&A session in Sydney and disappointed us all by ending the rumours; claiming that he would not be partaking in anything Doctor Who or Star Wars related.

Despite his claims, there is still hope; in previous interviews and Q&A sessions, Cumberbatch denied rumours of his role in Star Trek Into Darkness, which actually turned out to be true. »

Martin Freeman on why he normally would have turned down 'Fargo'

14 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Martin Freeman prefers to be a bit of a drifter.

“It’s not like a life choice where I just want to live in a part forever,” the actor says of his preference for close-ended work. “That’s the joy of the job for me: In a little while, I’ll be playing somebody else with a different load of people.”

Between filming The Hobbit and Sherlock, Freeman had two stipulations for the next project he would take on: He didn’t want to do series television, and he didn’t want to travel far from his London home. Then »

Locke review: Tom Hardy is brilliant in unconventional road movie

14 April 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Steven Knight; Screenwriter: Steven Knight; Starring: Tom Hardy, Ruth Wilson, Andrew Scott, Olivia Colman; Running time: 85 mins; Certificate: 15

Tom Hardy is brilliant as usual, playing Locke, a conscientious man whose life is thrown into chaos, but writer/director Steven Knight (the Oscar-nominated writer behind Dirty Pretty Things) gives him the perfect vehicle to exercise his talents. Specifically, it's a BMW sports utility vehicle which he must drive from Wales to London in just over 90 minutes.

It's not a race, though. This isn't one of those tick-tock thrillers where people die if the speedometer drops below 80mph. Locke is a careful, precise man, the foreman of a building site who might even be described as pernickety – except that he is also the engineer of his own downfall. After knocking off work one evening, he should be going home to his wife and sons, but there is another woman who needs him at her side. »

Benedict Cumberbatch Denies Star Wars Episode VII Involvement

13 April 2014 4:47 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There are only a handful of actors who seem to be anywhere near close to being attached to Star Wars Episode VII (Adam Driver and Lupita Nyong'o for example), but one name which seems to always crop up is Benedict Cumberbatch. Fans are desperate to see the British actor reunite with director J.J. Abrams, and while both men seem to be remarkably good at keeping secrets, it does now appear as if the Sherlock star has taken himself out of the running once and for all. Talking at the Oz Comic Con recently, @TheIrisAU reports that the actor said, "I would’ve liked a part in Jj’s new Star Wars but it won’t happen sadly." He also dismissed the possibility of Ever playing The Doctor in Doctor Who, or even making appearance in the popular BBC series for that matter. This is disappointing news on all counts really, »

Benedict Cumberbatch Won't Be In Star Wars: Episode VII

13 April 2014 12:34 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We've been hearing Benedict Cumberbatch's name mentioned in connection to Star Wars: Episode VII since casting rumors began last year. The British star had his first chance to work with director J.J. Abrams playing Khan in last year's Star Trek Into Darkness, and since last September he's been considered a frontrunner for an unspecified part in the next chapter of George Lucas' epic sci-fi saga. Exciting as the prospect of having Cumberbatch be in a Star Wars movie is, however, it would seem that it's not meant to be. The Sherlock star recently took part in a Q&A as part of Oz Comic-Con in Australia, and according to Tweets from the news site The Iris (via The Playlist) the actor confirmed to the crowd that he will not be in Star Wars: Episode VII. Said the actor, I would've liked a part in Jj's new »

Cumberbatch Will Never Do Star Wars, Doc Who

13 April 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Amongst the geek set, Benedict Cumberbatch is best known for his work on the Steven Moffat-produced "Sherlock" series and the J.J. Abrams-directed "Star Trek Into Darkness".

Yet Moffat and Abrams are best known for two other still ongoing gigs - "Doctor Who" and the upcoming "Star Wars" sequel trilogy respectively. This has naturally lead to much rumor and speculation that Cumberbatch will one day appear in one or both.

Appearing as part of a Q&A session this weekend in Sydney, the actor was asked about that. In the process, he didn't just shoot down the existing rumors but ruled out all future speculation as well in two short but succinct quotes:

"I would've liked a part in Jj's new Star Wars but it won't happen sadly."

"I'm never gonna play The Doctor, & nothing to do with the Whoniverse"

Of course Cumberbatch famously denied the various casting rumors »

Interview: Martin Freeman compares 'Fargo' to 'Sherlock' on the set of the FX drama

12 April 2014 9:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Calgary - I've been on two Martin Freeman sets in the past year, so I'm prepared for his process.  I can't tell you the details of what Freeman's Lester Nygaard is actually doing in the scene being filmed on this beautiful March day in the hills just outside of Downtown Calgary. "Fargo" is simultaneously shooting the seventh and eighth episodes of its 10-episode season and things are getting a wee bit climactic on the FX limited series.  It's not spoiling much to say that Lester Nygaard is under pressure in this particular moment. Lester is under pressure for most of "Fargo," which draws inspiration, but very little plot, from the Coen Brothers' Oscar-winning film. From the beginning, Lester is a slightly-less-than-normal guy whose life is turned upside-down by a chance meeting with Billy Bob Thornton's appropriately malevolent Lorne Malvo. As befits what is now the "Fargo" franchise, this meeting leads to violence, »

Benedict Cumberbatch has ruled out the possibility of appearing in Doctor Who or Star Wars 7.

The British actor, who stars in Steven Moffat's acclaimed Sherlock, has said in the past that he has no desire to play the Doctor, despite reports that he was in the running to take over from Matt Smith last year.

The Radio Times reports that Cumberbatch further disappointed fans at the Oz Comic-Con on Saturday (April 12) by claiming that he will not feature in any role in the show.

"I'm never gonna play the Doctor - and nothing to do with the Whoniverse," he said.

The 37-year-old has also laid to rest rumours that he is attached to appear in the highly-anticipated Star Wars 7.

"I would've liked a part in Jj's new Star Wars but it won't happen, sadly," he said.

Watch: Martin Freeman on being a good guy gone bad in 'Fargo'

11 April 2014 3:41 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Lately, Martin Freeman is best known for playing heroic roles in "Sherlock" and the "Hobbit" films, which made him appreciate the change of pace of his darker role in FX's anthology series "Fargo," adapted from the Coen brothers' 1996 classic. -Break- "One always wants to do something else. Whatever it is you do or don't do I think the next job is always like, 'What buttons haven't I pushed for a while or ever?'" said Freeman. "Every actor wants to do that. Every actor wants to play everything from a murderer to a lover to a hero – everything. [My character] Lester really affords that very well. You see an awful lot of humanity in Lester -- I think I get to play pretty much everything in the human experience in those 10 episodes. It's fantastic." Watch: Billy Bob Thornton secretly loves playing that sly devil in 'Fargo' When we first meet Lester Nyga. »
