All I could think when I watched it was this actor is superb and hands down funny as heck! Thank god for social media, now I can follow his career on it. If I could have a dream job, it would be to work on set with Richard. I don't care what I would do. I would get him whatever he wanted.🙏😆...I would just love to watch a true professional in action.❤

  • You’re a lucky man, Rob. Richard E. Grant allowed you to post this interview, unlike his RHLSTP with Richard Herring, which he banned from broadcast with no explanation.

    • @FStarNumber3 Merchant was the biggest dick. There was nothing in that interview that Herring hasn't done with everyone. There was no reason for Merchant to be an asshole except for the fact that he wanted to be an asshole.

      Tara CharnowTara Charnow7 maanden geleden
    • Tara Charnow I’ve liked the Herring variety of Richard for over 27 years but he can sometimes let his nerves and comic persona drift in to the ‘offensive dick’ territory in his interviews as he admits himself. I get the feeling the E Grant variety does not suffer fools gladly unless they are friends or he gets the joke. If Herring is unknown to E Grant then I could see how this particular episode of what all the cool kids are calling it, might have been an unenjoyable train wreck for the E Grant variety. Just look at the Stephen Merchant interview and Merchant understands the schtick but is still not having a fun time!

  • Rob and Richard in a Wes Anderson film? Please someone make this happen! Rob could do several characters if it was a claymation/stop-motion, like "Isle of Dogs" or "Fantastic Mr. Fox". Though I'd rather they actually appear on screen.

    Anna LAAnna LA7 maanden geleden
    • It would be Wes Anderson, Rob could play a pair of twins who are arch-rivals/sworn enemies ever since the incident in their childhood. (You KNOW Rob would love getting to 'show his range.')

    • Richard Herring... I really don't see the appeal, I don't enjoy him or his interviews AT ALL. (I know, there must be something I'm missing, but I just don't see why people like him, or even agree to be interviewed by him.) He just comes across as a wealthy boy who grew up with wealthy connections to get him 'in' to interview much more interesting people than himself. At least Brydon seems actually interested in his guests and what they have to say (especially about Brydon, ha, but other things as well), without flipping his hair every few seconds to show how 'rock-n-roll' he mistakenly thinks he is. If Herring cut his hair and wore clean clothes, would he have any appeal without some part of his look to play with as he twaddles along?

    • I was there, which I am very grateful for since it was never released, however the memory fades and it really annoyed me that he or his people didn't allow it to be uploaded. Don't know why, maybe because of Rich's teasing about not being able to talk about star wars? Or maybe he was embarrassed about Rich introducing him as being best known for playing long john silver ("You absolute fucker. I never played long john silver")

    • Oh fuck off. What are they supposed to do? They didn't choose to be born white, they're successful because they have talent and worked hard at what they wanted to be. How is that "privilege" ? How is Rob Bryden privileged by being born in a shitty Welsh town to working class parents? Just because Richard E Grant talks posh doesn't mean he automatically gets accepted for every role - it's down to talent. How do you feel about right-wingers saying that black actors are only on TV because they're black? It's bullshit - they're on TV because they'e talented.
