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.
