Bill Nighy is as excited for the “Love Actually” mini-sequel as we are.
During a Build Series interview with The Huffington Post on Thursday, the actor, who stars in the new movie “Their Finest,” shared a little bit of information about the much talked-about “Love Actually” revival, which will debut on Red Nose Day in the U.S. May 25.
“I’m in it,” Nighy, who of course played pop star and “Christmas Is All Around” singer Billy Mack in the beloved film, confirmed. “And Hugh Grant and Liam Neeson and Keira Knightley and Colin Firth and Lúcia [Moniz] and Andrew Lincoln and Chiwetel Ejiofor, you can probably guess that I’ve been saying this quite often over the last few days,” the actor joked. “It was very, very cool.”
The cast reunited with a goal to end child poverty and ensure that kids are safe, healthy and educated by supporting Red Nose Day and Comic Relief, which was founded by “Love Actually” writer and director Richard Curtis.
“You’ll get to see what’s happened to everybody in the 14 years since the movie was made,” Nighy said, adding that it’s definitely “satisfying.”
“I’ve seen Liam Neeson’s one and don’t miss it, and don’t miss Hugh Grant’s [bit] because it’s hilarious,” the actor concluded.
Nighy brings another comedic character to life as actor Ambrose Hilliard in “Their Finest,” a rom-com war drama that centers around a British film crew as they attempt to boost morale during World War II by making a propaganda film after the Blitzkrieg. The lovely movie is out April 7 in select theaters.
