people: rob brydon


Finally announced by RGO [x]  - Rupert Graves will be among the cast of new Rob Brydon led comedy Swimming With Men which started filming on 2nd May.

It’s based on the 2010 documentary Men Who Swim about a group of Swedish men in their 40s who try to combat their mid-life crisises by taking part in competitive sychnronised swimming.

And yes, that means the costume department will be very Speedo-oriented for a lot of scenes. :)


Some more info on the rest of the cast and planned release:

Rob Brydon is set to star in synchronised-swimming comedy “Swimming With Men,” for director Oliver Parker. The Welsh comedian and actor… leads a cast which also includes “Downton Abbey” star Jim Carter and “Sherlock’s” Rupert Graves.

Filming began this week in London, Hertfordshire and Essex on the British comedy which tells the story of a man (Brydon) suffering a mid-life crisis who finds new meaning as part of an all-male, middle-aged, amateur synchronised swimming team. The cast also includes Adeel Akhtar, Daniel Mays, Charlotte Riley, Thomas Turgoose, Nathaniel Parker and Jane Horrocks.
