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