Nestle down for your usual Friday night fun of celebrity hilarity and red chair shenanigans because Graham Norton is bringing it to your TV at 10:35pm.
The Graham Norton Show tonight on BBC One will feature a whole couch of stellar guests, with Jane Fonda, Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell and Bryan Cranston in the mix.
The musical guest for tonight’s show will be former One Direction band member Niall Horan who will be performing his new song Too Much To Ask.
Graham Norton’s comic timing will be matched by that of Matt Lucas, the Little Britain star.
The cast will get deep with Graham Norton as Jane Fonda reveals that she believes it was Richard Nixon who ordered her arrest in 1970 saying ‘Nixon had it in for me’ after she was arrested for having vitamin pills the police thought were drugs.
Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell take to the couch to discuss their ‘very dark’ new movie The Killing Of A Sacred Deer directed by Yorgos Lanthimos who the pair said is very particular.
Colin said that ‘Yorgos thought he had made an outright comedy. But I found it pretty dark and I was depressed by it.’
In preparation for his role as a heart surgeon in the film, Colin attended a real heart bypass surgery when she said ‘I turned green and had to step out of the room. Even though the patient was alive and survived, it screamed cadaver.’
Bryan Cranston, the Breaking Bad star, talks about how he prepared for the iconic role of Walter White, including actually cooking meth, ‘The drug enforcement chemist showed us how to make crystal meth. It’s very interesting, intricate and dangerous.’
Comedian Matt Lucas talks to Graham about his upcoming role in Network at the National Theatre, where he said he would not tolerate rude audience behaviour.
The Little Britain actor said: ‘There has been some poor behaviour in the theatre. I was working on Broadway and I noticed a kid in the front row who was clearly using his mobile phone and it drew my attention. When I had a big speech that was full of bluster and I knew there would be a certain amount of expectorant I lined myself up so he was the target. I was spewing and he was dodging.’
With Jane Fonda turning 80 soon she says ‘I never thought I would live this long, much less be working at my age. It’s amazing.’
Niall Horan will perform for the Graham Norton audience before scooting onto the couch for a chat before the red chair antics begin.
Next Friday, October 20, Graham’s guests include Hilary Clinton, Jeff Goldblum, Gerard Butler, Jack Whitehall and Gregory Porter.
