Podcast 74: John Cleese And Jeff Wadlow
The Ministry Of Silly Chat

16 August 2013  |  Written by Ali Plumb  |  Source: Exclusive / SoundCloud

It's just what your day needed: a picture of John Cleese with a lemur on his shoulders. This reason for this wonderful pairing is that this week's Empire Podcast features John Cleese's appearance to talk about his role in Disney's Planes, where he plays a rather wet British aircraft, and much more - including lemurs.

Elsewhere on this bumper-sized edition, the team talk comedy sketches that deserve a chance on the big screen, the further casting announcements from camp Expendables 3, Twitter users you should follow, Elysium, Kick-Ass 2 - including an interview with the director, Jeff Wadlow - not forgetting 2 Guns, Planes itself and the greatest character introductions in cinema history. Also: random trivia - and lots of it.

P.S. You can check out our podcast photo gallery here and subscribe to the Empire Podcast via our iTunes page or this handy RSS feed.

Planes
Love the John Cleese interview, if only because he spends the whole time talking about anything EXCEPT planes! More
