Welcome to Day 4 of the 12 Days of Castmas and another installment of the Casting Couch, Casta La Vista’s very own way of shoehorning ourselves into “the biz” where we take full advantage of the opportunities given to us to talk to people in the know about movies and such like.

This Casting Couch features Matt Greehalgh (super screenwriter of Control and Nowhere Boy) and Nev Pierce (editor-at-large of Empire magazine) who sat down with Chris W for a nice chat about the UK media industry and beyond when they came to Derby last month as part of ID Fest.

The conversation itself has been cut down to its best bits and Cee-dub has thrown a commentary in between sections so that they make a bit more sense. Apologies in advance for the noise of the travelling carnival booming from outside the interview room.

Also big thanks to Adam Cadwell for the spiffing picture of us above – hopefully we’ll have need to use it on many occasions in the future.

Hope you like it!

Post! Check out the very first episode in the Casta cannon to run at half capacity. Chris M is out and about on his travels and so left me in charge to fend for myself. The result is typically lengthy, sprawling and littered with swearwords, but all in all I’m sure you’ll agree it’s a hoot! Listen in for reviews of I Love You Phillip Morris and Nowhere Boy plus me and my SPECIAL GUEST witter on about recent casting decisions, Kick Ass’s buzz and our least favourite character in 24. Oh, and there’s some incest in there too.

Check back next week for another instalment of the CASTAways!
