Monty Python's Life Of Brian

As part of the Monty Python troupe, Gilliam never went in for many starring roles. Instead, he got comfortable taking the weirder, more grotesque parts on offer: from Patsy in Monty Python And The Holy Grail onwards, he’s leant his distinctive visage to a wide variety of tiny roles. Usually these were in his own films, such as “Irritating Singer Inside Fish” in The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen, or an uncredited smoker in Brazil. In 2013, though, Gilliam revealed on Facebook that he’d been cast in “a small but vital role” in the Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending. “Small” appears to be right: it took just one day to film. To hear the man himself talk about his cameo in John Landis's Spies Like Us, listen to our Empire Podcast special with him here.
