The Empire Podcast 108: Martin Freeman And David Cross

You might know him as Bilbo Baggins, or John Watson, or Tim From The Office (his character's full name), but this week Martin Freeman is actually Lester Nygaard from the new TV version of Fargo. He talks to us about everything from the joys of swearing to Billy Bob Thorton's pathological fear of antiquities.

Elsewhere, David Cross drops by to talk about the new film he wrote and directed, Hits, and we resist the temptation to grill him about Arrested Development, Mr. Show and The Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret. No-one does a Mrs. Featherbottom impersonation, we promise.

In the non-interview portions of the podcast, the team talk about a trio of suspicious movie pitches currently gaining traction in Hollywood, and discuss the always enjoyable experience of spotting someone who is now famous playing a tiny part in an old movie. One name to get you started: Michael Shannon.
