Jimmy Cricket Guest Stars in Womble The Movie

So late last night we promised you all on Twitter some exclusive new this morning and here it is folks and here it is, many of you will have seen us posting about Womble the Movie and today we are very pleased to bring you another exclusive as we announce that top comedian, Jimmy Cricket, wil be guest starring in the movie that is being made here in North Wales.

After 50 years, There’s More…….

The team behind Prestatyn’s summer feature film production ‘Womble’ have just announced British comedy legend Jimmy Cricket has now been confirmed as a guest star in the film. The star of stage and screen has a career spanning fifty years and he will bring his unique brand of comedy to the dramatic climax of the film playing himself as a talent contest judge.

Local actor Tom Spencer is looking forward to working with one of his comedy hero’s saying “I’m really looking forward to meeting Jimmy Cricket and taking the chance to learn from a great stand-up comedian, this film just keeps getting better, it is a great opportunity for me as an actor and aspiring stand-up comedian”.

Director, Lee Howard, said ‘We’re really excited Jimmy will be in the film, he has a heavy workload this year, he’s currently on tour headlining a comedy show called ‘You must be joking’ so it’s fantastic that he’s managed to fit us into his schedule’.

Best Picture Film haven’t confirmed if we’ll hear Jimmy’s famous catchphrases ‘come ere!’ and ‘…and there’s more!’ or if he’ll be wearing his trademark wellies in the film but are saving the details of his performance as a surprise for the audience.

The production is now underway as Lee has begun filming some small scenes and establishing shots around Prestatyn whilst major scenes will be shot during spring and summer this year.

We caught up with the director of Womble The Movie, Lee Howard, and asked about Jimmy being in the film, “We have worked hard to bring Jimmy into the film, he is an iconic comedian from the 80s era, and one of Wombles comedy heroes. he is a family comedy star and we will see this in the film, Jimmy will bring so much to the scenes he is in, and I am looking forward to working with him, I used to watch him on TV as a child, back in the day.

Here at Blazing Minds, we can’t wait to see Jimmy Cricket’s performance in the movie, heck we can’t wait to see the movie, other great news from the Womble camp is that the production team have been able to get hold of Thomas Nicholas (Kevin from American Pie) to use one of his songs from one of his albums in the movie, it certainly seems that Womble is the movie to keep your eyes on, I know we are.
