Huge thanks to Richard Edwards of SFX magazine for the cover image and interview.

To read the interview with the brilliant writer Jamie Mathieson in full see pages 8 and 9 of issue 177, the Christmas 2008 issue, which is available now - the feature has 7 new images from the film featuring Marc, Anna, Dean and Chris as well as a Q&A " IT'S ABOUT TIME" with Marc, Dean and Chris.

Time At the Bar

Three guys, a pub and paradoxes in Brit SF comedy Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel.

Like the grape and the grain , beer and the spacetime continuum don't traditionally mix well - basically, getting your head around Einsteinian theories gets exponentially harder the more pints you've sunk. But in the Brit indie SF comedy Frequently Asked Question About Time Travel, three ordinary blokes find a trip down to their local interuppted by a slip in the fabric of time that's sitting in the gents' loo. And people complain about the smoking ban...

"It's a comedy but I can't lose sight of the fact it is science fiction," FAQATT's debutant writer (and former stand-up) Jamie Mathieson tells Red Alert on the movie's Pinewood set. "I'm also trying to make a good thriller that people will watch and go, 'I'm not just watching this for the gags, I want to know how this plot comes together.' "I wanted to do something with a mind-blowing high-concept vibe to it," he continues, "and I'd always had the idea that you could do a farce using time travel as the mechanism. So rather than , 'Don't go in there, it's my husband!', it's, 'We can't go in there because it's us from half an hour ago.' You can have a situation where the same set of characters are looping back on themselves again and again and again in a very small location, the pub." The three men in question are Ray (The IT Crowd's Chris O'Dowd), Toby (Marc Wootton, from My New Best Friend and Shirley Ghostman) and Pete (Dean Lennox Kelly, the Shameless star and Doctor Who's Shakespeare) "Ray is a science fiction geek obsessed with time travel," explains Mathieson. "Toby is a geek in other ways - he's obsessed with films and thinks he's going to become a famous film director some day. Pete is the working class everyman who hates science fiction, thinks they're both twats and goes through the mill as far as time travel is concerned. He's the one on screen going, "I really don't understand what's going on here.' " After Ray meets a girl from the future played by Scary Movie's Anna Faris - "she's elevated it from being a little British film to being a little British film that everyone's looking at" - the trio are unwillingly transported backwards and forwards in time, encountering giant ants and disovering that something they wrote in the pub that night has made them famous in the future. Unfortunately, it's also prompted something from the future to come back to kill them, so they have to avoid both potential assassins and themselves.

Sounds a bit more complicated than your average chuckle movie..."

Exclusive: NATIVITY - photo by Marc

Marc sent this photo of fellow cast members, Martin Freeman and Jason Watkins straight from the set of NATVITY...

More news/photos coming soon....

BBC Press release:

BBC Films, Screen West Midlands and Limelight are pleased to announce that principal photography has begun on Nativity – writer and director Debbie Isitt's new British comedy.

Protagonist Pictures will handle international sales.

Directed and conceived by Debbie Isitt (Confetti), Nativity is an improvised comedy which has attracted an exciting British cast including Martin Freeman (Hot Fuzz, Confetti, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy), Ashley Jensen (Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story, Ugly Betty, Extras), Jason Watkins (Confetti) and Marc Wootton (Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel.

The film is produced by Nick Jones (Confetti) and will be shot entirely on location throughout the UK's West Midlands during a six week shoot.

Martin Freeman is Mr Maddens, a frustrated, under-achieving, primary school teacher.

His long time adversary, Gordon Shakespeare (Jason Watkins), is the teacher at the posh independent school up the road.

Every year, the two schools are embroiled in a bitter rivalry to achieve a five-star review for their Christmas nativity play. Maddens' class always comes runner-up. The story of his life.

This year, Maddens makes an idle boast to Shakespeare that his school's showstopping musical has attracted the attention of his ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Lore (Ashley Jensen) – who happens to be a big time Hollywood Producer.

They want to make a movie starring his kids – Hollywood is coming to Coventry!

When over-enthusiastic new classroom assistant, Mr Poppy (Marc Wootton), overhears the lie, Maddens suddenly finds himself a local celebrity and at the centre of quarrelling parents, a wannabe show director, and more Mary and Josephs than he can shake a stick at.

Now all he needs to do is persuade Jennifer to make Hollywood pay attention and make their dreams come true.

Isitt's Nativity is a sweet, heart-warming tale of how nothing can get in the way of the true spirit of Christmas.

Debbie Isitt says: "I'm so excited to be making another film with BBC Films and Screen West Midlands. Their enthusiasm and support for my work is fantastic."

Nick Jones, Producer, says: "It's wonderful to be working with Debbie, BBC Films and Screen West Midlands on Nativity. Their understanding of Debbie's process creates a truly supportive environment for this unique and hugely talented filmmaker."

Joe Oppenheimer, Executive Producer for BBC Films, says: "Debbie has a unique talent and vision, and as ever has assembled a wonderful cast and creative team to bring her great ideas to life. We're delighted to be working with her again."

David M Thompson, Executive Producer for BBC Films, says: "I'm a big fan of Debbie's work, having backed her previous film, Confetti.

"She is clearly a highly original talent with a bold and imaginative way of working, as well as a great sense of comedy. With an idea of such charm and wit, I am delighted our association is continuing."

Lee Thomas, Screen West Midlands, says: "Since Confetti, we've been eager to work again with this incredibly talented Coventry-based writer-director.

"Nativity, though conceived locally, promises to be an uplifting family film for a broad international audience and we are very excited about its prospects.

"We're also delighted to be working again with BBC Films, who are bravely committing to a film that has no traditional script – trusting, as we are, in the semi-improvised method of working that Debbie adopts with such success."

Nativity is a BBC Films and Screen West Midlands presentation in association with Limelight, a Mirrorball Films Production. A Debbie Isitt Film.

Martin Freeman, Ashley Jensen start shooting Isitt's Nativity

by Wendy Mitchell in London
11 Aug 2008 10:31

"Debbie Isitt has started principal photography on comedy Nativity, starring Martin Freeman, Ashley Jensen, Jason Watkins and Marc Wootton.

Backers are BBC Films, Screen West Midlands and Limelight. Protagonist Pictures is handling international sales.

Isitt, who last directed Confetti, is again directing an improvised comedy.

Nick Jones is producing.

The film will shoot throughout the West Midlands during a six-week shoot.

Freeman and Watkins play teachers at rival schools who hope to put on the best Christmas nativity play. Freeman's character then boasts that his ex-girlfriend, a Hollywood producer (Jensen) will be involved in his schools' production.

Isitt said: " I'm so excited to be making another film with BBC Films and Screen West Midlands. Their enthusiasm and support for my work is fantastic."

Joe Oppenheimer and David M Thompson for BBC Films will serve as executive producers.

Oppenheimer said: "Debbie has a unique talent and vision, and as ever has assembled a wonderful cast and creative team to bring her great ideas to life. We're delighted to be working with her again."


...AND thanks as ever to all those who've been asking recently via the Fooling Nobody blog/Myspace/Facebook for updates on future Marc news, since the last posting from Showtime's official announcements re: Marc in L.A. and searching for Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel release news etc - updates shortly...

Also, I've had a lot of requests clips, particularly regarding Marc's appearances on The Pilot Show - from Channel 4/E4 (2003) - (not yet available on DVD) see The Pilot Show creator Paul Garner's official site for clips - see HERE

Huge thanks to Dave aka "Dirty Dave"!!! - who very kindly sent me the following regarding his experienecs of Marc and taking part in the show...

Dave says:
"I was the one that was stitched up good and proper as "Dirty Dave" the D.I.Y. man!! I remember going to the studio that day with the mentality that I will do my utmost to be a "presenter of a sexy young show on Channel 4".

Little did I know that I was walking into a studio of absolute Comical Geniuses headed by the now internationally recognised talent that is Marc Wootton!! LOL!!

He and his colleague Sharon I believe, had me doing all kinds of madness, some of it probably too raw for even the bold Channel Four!!

I spent quite a bit of the day and many sketches with the great man doing what only he could get someone to do. When I found out the reality I had to laugh and still do to this day with my Wife.

Although he was and is who he is - he had no airs or graces and let me tell you, if you think he's good at what he does on screen, YOU HAVE NO IDEA - that man did not show any inkling of the hidden agenda. I looked in his eyes and he looked totally like he was telling the truth and believe it or not I'm not easily fooled!!

It made me feel a little better when I saw such celebrities as Des Lynam and my boyhood Idol Frank Bruno also getting stitched up.

A genius and legend in the making, I wish Marc all the success he deserves!! Big up!!"

Whatever happened to ****** Fraser?!!!!

NEW MARC NEWS....L.A.........

U.S.A. just in...from Variety by Josef Adalian

Showtime Imports Marc Wootton
Special Report:

Showtime is bulking up its comedy slate for 2009, ordering a series from Blighty comedian Marc Wootton and greenlighting a second season of Tracey Ullman's "State of the Union."

Moves come as Showtime moves closer to giving series orders to its Edie Falco and Toni Collette pilots, both of which are comedies. Nothing's been decided yet, but both projects are highly likely to move forward sometime this summer, joining a Showtime laffer slate which already includes "Weeds" and "Californication."

"We're on a bit of a comedy kick right now," Showtime entertainment president Robert Greenblatt told Daily Variety. Exec is particularly high on Wootton, who's well known in the U.K. (and to BBC America auds) for characters such as theatrical psychic Shirley Ghostman.

"I believe he is the new Sasha Baron Cohen," Greenblatt said, noting Wootton's ability to mine comedy by fooling everyday folks into thinking his characters are real.

In an unusual move, rather than developing a pilot, Showtime is giving Wootton a blind, six-episode series order and is allowing him to create a character-driven, alternative comedy in which his characters interact with unassuming real people.

It also helps that Showtime is flush with cash, thanks to the $300 million or so it will begin saving once its movie output deals expire in 2010. Execs at the cabler have made it clear that the extra coin will be funneled into more original series.

In addition to toplining the BBC "High Spirits With Shirley Ghostman," Wootton also wrote and starred in the comedy quizzer "My New Best Friend" and the BBC sketch comedy "Marc Wootton Exposed."

Wootton's Showtime project will be exec produced and directed by Misha Manson-Smith ("Death in Gaza"). Wootton and Michael Rizzo will exec produce.

As for Ullman's "State of the Union," Showtime has ordered a second season of seven episodes. Skein will return next year.

"State of the Union" premiered March 30 and wrapped its five-episode frosh season on Sunday.

Making his Marc...

Wootton lands his own US series

Making His Marc

Marc Wootton has landed his own American TV series, after Hollywood executives branded him ‘the new Sacha Baron Cohen’.

The comic, best known for playing oddball stage psychic Shirley Ghostman, is to make a six-part series for the upmarket cable channel Showtime.

Unusually, the show, which will air next year, has been commissioned without a pilot episode to test the water.

Showtime entertainment president Robert Greenblatt told Hollywood trade paper Variety: ‘I believe he is the new Sacha Baron Cohen,’ citing his ability to fool people into thinking his characters were real.

‘We're on a bit of a comedy kick right now,’ Greenblatt said.

Showtime already broadcasts comedies Weeds and Californication and
is piloting at least two more comedy series. To read the article in full go to: LINK TO ARTICLE

Marc News...Exposed and Gavin and Stacey...4 on Demand

Marc appears in the second series of Gavin and Stacey which begins on BBC3 tonight at 9pm - read more in the interview below...

Interview by Luke Knowles with Ruth Jones:

Last week I was lucky enough to speak to actress and Gavin & Stacey writer Ruth Jones. The series which premiered on BBC3 last year has become a favourite of mine. The series scooped Ruth and writing partner James Corden the best comedy newcomer and best new TV comedy prizes at the 2007 British Comedy Awards. Ruth might be known now for her role as Nessa but she’s had a long TV career from ITV1’s Fat Friends to playing lesbian barmaid Mafanway in a little-known BBC3 series called Little Britain. And with Gavin & Stacey returning for a seven-part second series on Sunday, it was scoop I wanted.
Q - How Have things changed for you and James since the success of the first series and what’s the best thing the success has bought you?
Nothing essential has changed - we've become a lot busier with work that's for sure and it's all very exciting, but we haven't bought a holiday home in Florida or anything!

Q - Has the success surprised you?
We've been delighted by how popular the show has become - and particularly the universality of its appeal. All ages seem to like it - it's a real one-size-fits-all kind of a show I think.

Q - Congratulations on your British Comedy awards. Can you give us an exclusive on where you keep the awards? Are they hidden in an underground lair somewhere?
The production company, Baby Cow, keeps the best new comedy award and James and I have got our newcomer awards, Mine's well displayed, don't you worry, I make sure people pass it when they come through the door - "What - that? Oh that's just my best female newcomer award."

Q - What are the benefits of airing on BBC3 then moving to BBC2?
Primarily, being on BBC3 means of course that it gets more airings so more people get a chance to see it if they miss the original broadcast. But more people actually watch BBC2 because it's terrestrial so it's swings and roundabouts. We feel very grateful to BBC3 - they were fully behind it from the start. They did a great job with the publicity - did you see our trendy trail first time round? And then BBC2 have shown it twice which is brilliant! Last Saturday, they did a whole Gavin & Stacey night and showed the whole series back to back. We've had so much support from both channels - we've been really lucky.

Q - Was this series easier to write as you knew the cast and their characters or did you find it harder to follow it up knowing how well the first series was received?
The second series was sometimes harder to write - mainly because we were under more pressure timewise. We started writing last April and had to get it finished to film in October. Also when we were writing the first series, would be going out and often we'd get these positive reviews the next day which made us think 'oh my God, can we do it a second time?' Having such a great cast of actors really helped us though with writing for the characters that they had essentially brought to life.

Q - At the end of the last series, we knew Nessa was pregnant with Smithy’s child. Nessa approached Smithy at the wedding but couldn’t bring herself to tell him. Does the second series continue where we left off and do Smithy and Nessa have any feelings for each other?
Smithy and Nessa aren't ever going to have feelings for each other - they just happen to have had some good sex together but that's as far as it goes. And of course now they're left with the prospect of possibly being parents to the same child - if Nessa chooses to have the baby that is!. Basically the story picks up after the honeymoon.

Q - The show is called Gavin & Stacey but it is as much about their friends and family. Is everyone from series one back?
Yes - everyone's back including Pete (Adrian Scarborough) and Dawn (Julia Davis) who are such brilliant characters. We're also really lucky to have Sheridan Smith in a couple of episodes playing Smithy's sister. She's fabulous.

Q - Can we expect any guest appearances in the new series?

As well as Sheridan, we've also got the lovely and brilliant Marc Wootton in one of the episodes. James and I are big fans of Marc's. He's such a talented performer.

Weird World: How Bizarre Is...

Marc Wootton

The strangest thing Marc Wootton has had in his mouth was
'his teacher's cock'. and it gets worse

marc wootton

Marc Wootton was the talent behind Cyderdelic, My New Best Friend, and the magnificent Shirley Ghostman. And you really should already be watching his new show Marc Wootton Exposed (Sundays, 10pm, BBC3). He likes apes,
Muppets and all animals, despite an unfortunate incident with a mouse...

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever had in your mouth?

Umm, I can’t think. My teacher's cock? That’s not
actually that weird is it? That’s just what most school
kids go through. Erm, I don’t know. Can we move on?

Do you collect anything weird?
I’m obsessed with monkeys, and I collect lots of
monkey things, Planet of the Apes especially.
Anything from Planet of the Apes, Beneath the Planet
of the Apes
, Escape from Planet of the Apes, Conquest
of the Planet of the Apes
. I’m not that into Battle of the
Planet of the Apes
because it got a bit weak by then.
I also collect a lot of Muppet memorabilia. I’ve got a replica
Kermit and BT phone cards of each of the Muppet characters.

Why monkeys?
I think the reason that I love monkeys is that people complicate
life when in actual fact it is about playing, eating and shagging.
And monkeys do just that. They don’t bother with mortgages,
little concrete houses, pavements, silly little
monkey cars, emails and mobile phones. You wouldn't
find a monkey forcing a another monkey to work extremely
long hours for low pay just to keep himself in trainers. They just
shag, play, eat and sleep. And that’s
what we should do. I always look to the monkeys for guidance and think,
‘What would a monkey do here?’

What’s the biggest animal you’ve ever killed?
Shirley Ghostman killed a dog by shoving all the
pieces of Buckaroo up its arse. But me, it’s a mouse.
I caught a mouse using one of those humane traps but then didn’t know what to do with it, so I let him go in some water thinking he might drown, but he swam and swam. I felt really guilty and awful. I couldn’t just leave him to drown, so I scooped him into a
carrier bag and… killed him. I don’t know what came over me.
It was weird. I feel terrible.

Do you ever hear voices?
My nan was a paranoid schizophrenic and she definitely heard voices. She came to stay with us at one point and it was just the weirdest time, feeling quite unnerved by this quite ancient lady
kind of having proper full on
conversations with kettles and people “on the air”.
I would help her act out these huge flights of fantasy
and encourage her.

Once she put a pillow up her front
and went round to our
next-door neighbours
and told the wife that her husband had got her
pregnant. She once told my mum that she had my
sisters and I at the bottom of the garden and was
going to kill us. She hadn’t at all, We were all sat round
the table waiting for dinner to be served. Scary lady.

What’s the closest to death you’ve ever come?
We’d always end Cyderdelic by laying in traffic.
I had a few close shaves on that show. After a while you’d done the
show so many times you started thinking
that unsuspecting motorists know the end, but of course they
don’t. I had some close shaves and I got hit
once, which was a good ending to the show.

What’s the biggest animal that you’ve ever ridden?
I rode my next-door neighbour’s cat and broke its legs.
That’s not true. I just threatened to do that. I said, “If you come round here any more, wise guy, I’m going to ride your cat
and break its
legs.” I didn’t really. I wish I had.

Do you have any fetishes?
I wish I was a bit more unusual and I could say that I loved
fucking people’s eyes in but I really don’t have any extreme
fetishes, I’m quite boring.
Is wearing women like shoes a fetish? No, I don’t
have that fetish. I’m trying to think
but I don’t have anything weird. I don’t think, ‘Oh god,
I like disabledies rubbing up against me’. I’d love to say
something rock and roll but I’d be lying.

Have you ever wet yourself through fear?
No, but I wet myself when I was doing an episode
of at Bayswater ice skating rink. I was told
that I couldn’t wet myself for health and safety reasons
but I just drank loads and weed all
over the ice. You got that mistiness.
It looked like an old Top of the Pops dry ice
number. It was the episode that never got shown
because the guy flipped out about it.

Have you ever had an imaginary friend?
Spanner Man wasn’t an imaginary friend but more like a kind of
another version of me. You’d never see us in the same place.
I used to get out an adjustable
spanner and be like, “Where’s Marc? Have you seen Marc?
No? Oh well, Spanner Man’s here!”

If you had to have sex with an animal, what would you choose?
A little marmoset. Not intercourse sex because it would
find that pretty stressful with its tiny little orifices.
But marmosets have mini little hands, and those around
your cock would make it look huge.

If you had to choose between necrophilia,
coprophilia and bestiality, which would you choose?

I think it would have to be necrophilia because it
would be the least stressful. If there was a crowd of
people watching me doing it with my dead nan and clapping
in time with the strokes, I would find that really quite
stressful. But if it was just me and my nan and we were in
a little place and no one knew, she’s dead so she’s not really
there, so it’s just a case of closing your
eyes and pretending it’s someone else. And
their hands would be able to grip stuff, like my
little replica Kermit that you can move and pose.
I imagine that you can pose dead people to do stuff
if the rigor mortis has set in, which would make it all easier.

Not an ape then?
I reckon that they would be pretty rough. I think I’d be
pretty scared. You’d get thumped on the back. I don’t
think that I would be able to get it up because I would
be so anxious that it was going to hit me with its big
thumping fists. At least with a dead person you wouldn’t
have to think about their feelings. It’s a guilt free bit of fun.

Dearest people what support the Marc Wootton,

Firstly thanks for logging on and coming to have a poke around the site. It’s run by a fabulous web mistress who goes by the name pin-gli. Thankfully for me, she locates, copies and files everything Wootton.
I’m really excited about the show going out this Sunday, please tell everyone and anyone to tune in and have a gander.
My personal favourites are Paul Pearson (The Dracula), Ian Jackson (The psycho child), and Doris (The old lady). It’s pretty obvious if you watch the series as I’ve put them in all six shows!
There are a few surprises coming up in the series, Prudence (The wife who is in denial about her gay husband) is introduced in week 2 and after that each week there is a one-off stand alone character. Dave Bishop (The celebrity driver with a dark secret) is one to look out for, oh and Gary (FREAK).
I really do hope you enjoy the show. Thanks again for taking the time.
Marc x
