Series 2, Episode 5 - Jurassic Park

This week is Keith & Paddy's version of Jurassic Park, featuring Sian Gibson, Sally Phillips, George Potts, Shaun Ryder and Bernie Clifton.

Further details

Keith and Paddy are undaunted by taking on Steven Spielberg's most successful movie, in fact Keith actually thinks he can improve on it. Yes Spielberg's dinosaurs were terrifying, but wouldn't they be even more terrifying if they had machine guns? Keith and Paddy also dispense with the need for child actors by offering the part of eleven-year-old Lex to the smallest actress they know - Car Share's Sian Gibson - and the part of eight-year-old Tim to... well let's just say this eight-year-old has a ginger beard. Sally Phillips takes on the Laura Dern role and, much to Paddy's chagrin, she takes a real shine to Keith. Oh and who plays the Jeff Goldblum role of Ian Malcolm the rock-star scientist? Well Keith and Paddy don't know any scientists but they do know a rock star. Shaun Ryder it is then.

What did you enjoy most about filming The Keith And Paddy Picture Show?

What's not to love about dressing up every day and acting out one of your favourite films? Dream job! It was loads of fun and I loved every bit of it.

Tell us about your favourite / funniest moment on set?

I laughed a lot every day on set. Keith and Paddy are very funny and I loved working with them. Although the highlight for me - actually a career highlight - is being chased down a hill by a herd of Bernie Cliftasauruses - that's never gonna happen again.

What can viewers expect from your cameo?

A great wig and lots of heavy breathing.
