- Jim Piddock is Caught With His Pants Down Jeff Dwoskin 1:00:39
How does one become one of the greatest character actors of all time? Jim Piddock shares his journey to success.
Jim Piddock is an actor, writer, and producer. He made his theatrical debut in the U.S. in “The Boy’s Own Story”, a one-man show about a soccer goalkeeper, at the Julian Theatre in San Francisco.
He appeared in his first movie in the top-grossing film of 1989, “Lethal Weapon 2”, in which one of his lines, “But…you’re black” in answer to Danny Glover’s request to emigrate to South Africa, became a catchphrase for the film. But it is probably his diverse performances in the improvised Christopher Guest comedies “Best In Show” (as the Dog Show commentator with Fred Willard), “A Mighty Wind”, and “For Your Consideration” that he has gained the most attention as a chameleon-like character actor, barely recognizable from role to role.
Jim and discuss Lethal Weapon 2, his guest spot on Friends, working with George C. Scott, writing with Christopher Guest and so much more!
We also discuss Jim’s book, Caught With My Pants Down. A must read!
