'Hot Fuzz' Star Paddy Considine Joins Edgar Wright's 'World's End'

Paddy Considine

Over the past few years, British actor Paddy Considine has had a very eclectic career. He brought great laughs as one of the mustached Andy's in Hot Fuzz, and then took a more serious turn in The Bourne Ultimatum before getting behind the camera for his directorial debut Tyrannosaur (a fantastic film available on Netflix Instant right now). Now Considine is heading back to comedy with Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as Variety reports the actor has landed a role in The World's End, the story of five childhood friends who reunite for a drinking marathon that culminates at the titular pub. More below!

But as the friends reconcile the past with their present, a struggle for mankind somehow becomes more apparent. Considine is playing one of the five friends (along with Pegg and Frost), a former ladies man and musician who has grown up to be a divorced architect. Considine joins a slowly growing cast that also includes Rosamund Pike as a romantic lead. The film is slated to being shooting next month across the pond, and I can't wait to see the conclusion to the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy sometime next year.

    I just hope Dylan Moran is one of those 5 in this movie 😀 I was kinda bummed he wasnt in Hot Fuzz, and his role in Run Fatboy Run was hilarious!

      yes, any comedy chronicling the potential end of mankind needs a funny, satirical misanthrope. Moran FTW! as for Considine, the man's got serious talent and range - you never know what, or who, he's going to try next. his involvement can only raise my already ludicrous expectations for The World's End still higher.
  • Lebowski
    If you haven't seen Dead Man's Shoes (written by and starring Paddy Considine) go see it right fucking now. It may be the most brutal, uncompromising revenge film ever produced.
    • That's my number one favourite film Lebowski, his character is brilliant.

      Right on, and Considine, as always, delivers a very deep performance. He's one of the best out there right now. I hope he keeps doing comedies with this trio because he's good at comedy, too.
  • Dylan Moran better be in this!
