Richard Ayoade – the actor and director whose credits include numerous music videos for Arctic Monkeys plus cult film Submarine – says it was "a thrill" to cast Dinosaur Jr frontman J. Mascis in The Double, his latest movie – click above to watch.

In the movie, which stars Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska, Mascis plays a caretaker.
