Empire Podcast #261: Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby
It’s truth time on the Empire Podcast this week, as we welcome the stars and creators of this week’s British comedy action movie Mindhorn, Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby. Erstwhile comedy stars of the small screen in The Mighty Boosh, Horrible Histories and Yonderland, the pair drop by the pod booth (in its final appearance before Empire moves offices, incidentally) to talk about their Bergerac-meets-The-Six-Million-Dollar-Man comic creation, and the process of making an action movie on the Isle of Man.
Plus, the team welcome back Empire Podcast co-host and returning hero Helen O’Hara after several weeks away running up mountains in Nepal; and by that token we discuss our favorite running scenes in movies. Can anything beat The Happening? (Yes. Yes, it can.)
