[ laughter ] >> seth: so, this is based on a true story. >> yes. >> seth: the show. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: and tell us a littlje aboumy thorpe. >> well, it was this massive scandal in britain in the 0s. i remember -- i remember it 'cause i, you know, i was in my teens then. and it was just the biggest political scandal you've ever had. and it resulted in this massive trial. the trial of the century. and it was this guy who was the head of one of our three big ol parties --ical parties. absolute member of the establishment. he went to eaton, you know, where throyal family would go. went to oxford. beautifully dressed. very smooth. had a family.wi had . it turned out he put a hit on his ex-gay lover who was stalking him and threatening to reveal him.ll and it was a rcrap hit. it was -- that was the very english bit. it was so, kinlaof -- [ lighhter ] hopeless and amateurish.
you know, the hit man was an out work airline pilot who got it all wrong and -- and used the wrong gun and shot the dog instead of tla man. hter ] so, it was very scandalous. and it -- so, the series is quite dark, but also funny. because it was just so absurd. >> seth: well, i will say the -- when i heard the desiption of it, well, you know, there's a murder trial and it's a closetei cian. and, i think, in this broad political time we live in, i just assumed it would be so much darker. it is -- it's a weird thing to say, it is a lot of fun as well. which is a about politics right now. [ light laughter ] >> yeah, that's right. that's right. but ey are freaks. i mean, i -- [ light laughter ] i've spent the last six years of my life, very unlike me, getting heavily involved in politics in britain. this campaign i've been doing about evil newspapers. so i'm up close withicians all the time and let me say, it's unquestionably true that they are weirdos. that they -- [ light laughter ] who would go into that job?
>> seth: yeah. >> you're not paid very much. and really with that whole thing, it's true. it is show business for the ugly.at hey are -- [ laughter ] narcissistic, ego-maniacal. >> seth: yeah. >> sociopathic. and with absolutely -- and very, very rarely any interest in the country or it's welfare, i find. >> seth: i mean, you -- so, i mean, one of the things, i know you've been advocating for is trying to stop -- it was the hacking scandal with newapers. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: and do you at least find that when you talk to politicians about that, that they are listening to you and hearing? or do you feel like it's going a in one e out the other? >> no, they listen and they are on our side. completely on our side actually, i've -- i don't think i've ever met one who is really philosophically posed. but that's not how politics works. it's one of the things that's made me so cynical. because these big newspapers art so powerfuy make or break our politicians. they choose our prime minister effectively. >> seth: mm-hmm. >> so, when it comes to these big votes on -- well, let's have a new system of regu where, actually, newspapers do have to, kind of, print the truth instd of a lie. at the last moment, the
government will always back outv because theyto please these big tax-dodging bastards. print the newsper. [ light laughter ] >> seth: it's very terrifying. and i'm glad we don't have any problems like that over here. [ laughter and applause ] what a life. >> well, you don't have those problems. >> seth: yeah, you don't have those. it's true. no, your press is rathe nice. >> seth: so, i read this and was surprised. do you -- you still t a little bit, when you act, you get a little camera shy. is that a ir thing to say? >> well, i have to ward it off all the time. >> seth: right. absolutely.ah. i think, maybe, everyone does. but it's i started.tmare since i get -- the two worse things i could have would be if that camera is gonna push in slowly on me and i had no words, but i just had to emote. >> seth: yeah. >> and all that would happen is that my jaw would go further ant r and further out here. [ light laughter ] i literally can't stop it.he and the nightmare is if they say, "okay, easy shot to do. i will jt need you walking down the street towards the camera." nightmare. >> seth: yeah. >> it's a nightmare because,
suddenly, you can't walk anymore. >> seter yeah. [ laug >> and i get a very, very bouncy walk. [ laughter ] d and then tector, even to this day, has to go, "yeah, yeah. great. it was a little bit bouncy."ug [ light er ] and i can't stop it. >> seth: i know exactly what you're talking about. v ity strange how certain things, even business with your hands. >> yes. >> seth: you know. and again i -- you're very good at it. i was very bad at it., but i juwould, they would start doing things. and, like, you know, drink a coffee. and you'd be like -- [ light laughter ]w. >> i k why is that -- >> seth: but you just completely forget. >> why is that suddenly so difficult? >> seth: yeah. , and you -- but you feel like you were less prepared for film acting than american actors? >> well, yeah. i think -- don't know. i don't know how they're trained re america, but they seem comfortable on the set. we have to go through terrible convolutions to t -- i mean, anthony hopkins, you can't get a better actor than him. he has this problem, and so, he starts every shooting day by being nice to the camera. you see, he goes up and he ke stand talks to it. [ light laughter ] says, "good morning. how are you?"
i think i've seen them having lunch together. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's good. i'm happy. you know, make friends. yeah. >> yeah, exactly. >> seth: in this day a age, even if it's an inanimate object, i'm just happy to see two people get along. [ light laughter ] >> and i agree with you. >> seth: yeah. >> no one gets along. i have about three fights with strangers a day. i don't know what's happened. [ light laughter i blame the internet. >> seth: yeah. no, i think the internet -- as far as fights with strangers, the internet i-- >> it's tormentous. >> seth: yeah, absolutely. >> yeah. >> seth: and you just keep going back to it. i would say it's worse than, at least with the world cup, like, you put your faith in england. it only happyes every four s. the internet, you can go to a hundred times a day. >> yeah, exactly. and i -- and i can stop. and i feel demented. [ light laughter ] thad a terrible fight with a taxi driver in par other day. i always have a fight with a taxi driver in paris. they're not very nice, if truth be told.
