Martin Freeman plays Magician in 'Other People'
His skills in comedy are almost magic anyway, and now he can prove it.
Martin Freeman (best known for his role in The Office) will be starring in a TV comedy about a 30-something washed-up Magician. The premise is apparently a guy who was successful at 18, but is now struggling.
Now, I personally know him best from such comedic masterpieces as Shaun of the Dead and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (yes, I liked it, so sue me), since I've never really watched The Office. That being said, I love his work, and I can't wait to get a look at this show.
Other People is currently in the Pilot stage, but is being produced for Channel 4 in the UK.
