There is nothing more emotional than when footage is released from a tv series or movie franchise that’s come to it’s end, and you hear the “that’s a wrap!” and the crew that’s been together for years starts crying and hugging

So this is the cast of the new radio production of Anansi Boys, coming this Christmas.

Some serious talent involved. By serious we mean IMMENSE…..Jacob Anderson, Grey Worm in Game of Thrones.

The legend that is Sir Lenny Henry, long-time friend of Neil and early influence on Anansi Boys, the book.

Nathan Stewart-Jarrett from cult British series Misfits.

Some AMAZING WOMEN including Adjoa Andoh who’s pretty much been in everything from Doctor Who to Thunderbirds are Go to MI High.

Sheila Atim, Pippa Bennett-Warner (Harlots).

Ariyon Bakare who is spellbinding as butler Stephen Black in Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. Also currently cast in the TV adaption of Good Omens.

random list of my favourite characters — nathan young (misfits)

“We’re young. We’re supposed to drink too much. We’re supposed to have bad attitudes and shag each other’s brains out. We are designed to party. This is it. Yeah, so a few of us will overdose or go mental. But Charles Darwin said you can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs. And that’s what it’s all about breaking eggs! And by eggs, I do mean, getting twatted on a cocktail of Class As. If you could just see yourselves! It breaks my heart. You’re wearing cardigans! We had it all. We fucked up bigger and better than any generation that came before us. We were so beautiful! We’re screw-ups. I’m a screw-up and I plan to be a screw-up until my late 20′s, maybe even my early 30′s. And I will shag my own mother before I let her… or anyone else take that away from me!”
