Clunes ‘no’ to be­hav­ing badly again

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BIG-EARED ac­tor Martin Clunes has put the block on plans to bring back sit­com Men Be­hav­ing Badly – be­cause he thinks it would be ‘seedy’.

The 49-year-old cur­rent star of Doc Martin ( above) made his name play­ing Gary along­side Neil Mor­risey’s Tony in the 1990s show about two blokes shar­ing a flat in Lon­don.

The com­edy ran for six se­ries, fin­ish­ing in 1998, and also stared Caro­line Quentin and Les­lie Ash.

But Clunes says there’s no way he would play the part again be­cause he’s too old to make it work.

He said: “I think it might be a bit seedy – sad peo­ple in their 50s with the think­ing of teenagers.

“It would be hard to do peo­ple’s mem­o­ries jus­tice.

“And you know, the oth­ers haven'’t aged as well as me!” Yes, I’ve tried most things once. There’s no point in be­ing a prude and you don’t know what you’ll like un­til you try it.
