Ahead of his star turn as Pike in the new Dad’s Army film, Blake Harrison sat down with NME to play “Who Would You…?” and, as well as revealing some of his interests (Joss Whedon films, Stan Lee comics), he told us about the many, many times his former Inbetweeners co-star James Buckley farted on-set, immediately prior to each take. He encourages viewers to go back and watch the other actors acting through his farts, making a fart-smelling faces.
Dad’s Army is set in 1944 and is based on the BBC sitcom that ran from 1968-1977. It tells the tale of the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard, under the rule of Captain Mainwaring, whose morale is low until a glamorous journalist played by Catherine Zeta Jones arrives to report on their activities. Meanwhile, a spy is uncovered in the town, which forces the Home Guard into action. See a trailer below.
