TELLY star John Hannah says he had to watch PORN to pre­pare for his lat­est screen role.

The Scot­tish ac­tor plays a de­tec­tive in spoof cop drama – and had to watch filthy movies to get in to the part.

In one scene his char­ac­ter DI Jack Cloth taunts a gang­ster’s hench­man by mim­ing a sex act.

He said: “I had to watch a lot of porn for re­search. That scene seemed to go on for a VERY long time.”


The 52-year-old ac­tor and film star says he’s wor­ried that be­ing in the daft drama might have ru­ined his chances of se­ri­ous fu­ture roles.

He added: “I haven’t had any se­ri­ous cop drama scripts sent to me since the first se­ries.

“I guess from now on it’s just do­ing voice-overs and turn­ing up on panel shows.”

The se­cond episode in two-part mick-tak­ing drama is on Sky 1 on Sun­day night 9pm.
