Rufus Hound web chat highlights
MSN Movies sat down to ask Rufus Hound YOUR questions about his new movie The Wedding Video.
Here are the highlights:
Q: Have you ever been a Best man for real?
Rufus: "Yes. At my brother's wedding. I was overly emotional. Rather than ending on a big toast I ended crying, My brother cried, My mum cried. The wedding crashed. Everyone was trying to find some happiness. Not a great best man."
Q: Rufus, whilst you'rw doing this you're missing a horse do dressage to the Lion King music. Did you have to miss something whilst making the film?
Rufus: "Not quite miss something... but, my daughter was born a week(ish) before we started shooting so I missed being at home. My first child I was at home a lot when he was born, and with Hilda I was like 'OK good luck with the baby, bye!'
Q: Rufus, we love your standup. What made you leap to film?
Rufus: "The world can be a miserable horrible place a lot of the time. In stand-up you engage with how rubbish things are, but if you're doing that as a job, you need SOMETHING to be able to take your mind off that. And be reminded that isn't love lovely, and to be given the chance to make a movie that wasn't cynical - not that it's saccharine - just not mean. Ideally, if I watched it with my wife, we'd probably end up having sexual intercourse. I want people to go with their partners and watch this movie and then go home and have really, really good sex!"
Q: How do you rate your chances in the casting of Christian Grey?
Rufus: "I think I stand more chance of being cast if it turns out in the sequel he's put on a lot of weight!"
Q: What's Leigh Francis like in person, is he always in character?
Rufus: "Yes! Yes he is more or less always in character. keith Lemon in many ways is what Leigh would like to be if he thought he could get away with it. Keith is Leigh unfiltered, without the voice in his head saying don't say that! He is always there."
Q: What's the most embarrassing thing that's happened to you at a wedding?
Rufus: I fell asleep at my sister-in-law's wedding. My wife's sister got married in the south of France but I was doing a play in Newcastle. The only way to get there was to fly and drive through the night. I flew straight there and drove from Barcelona... halfway through the speeches I was actually woken up and told to join in! At least I hadn't fallen asleep into the wedding cake.
