Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Episode 178 is standing outside your door this minute, so exercise politeness and cordiality and let it in won't ya - it's a goody this week, as Pip is joined by mighty acting talent Jonny Lee Miller!
Undoubtedly you will know Jonny from the film which basically everyone must have seen by now (I mean if you were at an age suitable for the 18 rating) Trainspotting - and if not then good god fix that up already... He played the standout character 'Sickboy', and went onto revisit the character a couple of decades later in T2. These were naturally not the bookends of his career, as you will hear in this full on sprawling conversation - you'll get the inside scoop on his very early days, where he effectively bypassed the conventional acting route and did things in his own way, his Kingston Upon Thames (bigups!) days, his old skool days doing the UK actor thing by starring in The Bill, Eastenders and all the classics, and his giant leaps from the UK to the US, and LA to NY, from squandering roles after Trainspotting but clawing back a glorious career and ultimately starring as Sherlock Holmes in the huge US series Elementary - AND starring as Sherlock more than anyone else ever! Power moves from Jonny - get involved and brush up on your Jonny Lee Miller trivia! Huge. Enjoy!
