Old Tricks

Martin Freeman is to star in a Channel 4 comedy about a former teen-star magician called Other People. I'm surprised they didn't call it Old Tricks.

He is quoted in Broadcast magazine as saying "It's about this guy who used to do all the big shows like the Royal Variety Performance and Saturday Superstore when he was 18, but is now a bit washed up. It's that feeling that most thirtysomethings have of feeling like they are not quite where they thought they would be."

Wonder where the internationally famous, much-feted Freeman thought he was going to be in his thirties? Stacking shelves? The disappointment must be palpable.
