#177 Richard E Grant: On His Career, Spice World & The Oscars

Today's episode is with the brilliant Oscar-nominated actor Richard E. Grant. He is best known for his roles in Gosford Park (2001), Withnail & I (1987) and Hudson Hawk (1991) and my personal FAVE Spice World: The Movie (1997). He has worked with some of America's greatest directors, such as Robert Altman, Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese.


He will appear in Star Wars in 2019 in a currently undisclosed part. In this episode, we chat about Richard's part in the fantastic film Can You Ever Forgive Me? where he plays the real-life character Jack Hock alongside Melissa McCarthy which has earned him an Academy Award, a BAFTA, a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nomination, as well as winning a New York Film Critics Circle Award. The film is based on the book of the same name by Lee Israel and well worth a read.


Apologies that this episode is a little shorter than usual, but I hope you enjoy this episode!
