Dawn French, James Corden, Mathew Baynton, Emilia Fox & Rebecca Front for The Wrong Mans – BBC Two
BBC have announced the new cast for their latest drama commission The Wrong Mans.
The show has been penned by and stars James Corden & Mathew Baynton, who take on the roles of hapless duo Phil Bourne & Sam Pinkett, whose menial existence is turned upside-down by a chance phonecall and a case of mistaken identity.
Somehow the clueless pair find themselves in the middle of a world filled with unexpected international conspiracy and intrigue, and they cross paths with mysterious Scarlett (Emilia Fox) and Stevens (Nick Moran) as the chaos gets underway.
BAFTA-winning comedy actresses Dawn French takes on the role of Phil’s mum Linda, while Rebecca Front will play Cox, the ballsy head of MI5 investigating the international plot.
Sarah Solemani will act as Sam’s ex girlfriend and new boss Lizzie Green, while Karl Roden, Stephen Campbell Moore, Dan Renton Skinner, Benedict Wong, Tom Basden and Rufus Jones also appear in the cast.
