My Dinner With Hervé 10.05pm, Sky Atlantic
Hervé is the late French actor Hervé Villechaize, best known for his memorable weekly cry of “De plane! De plane!” in Fantasy Island. A passion project for both its star, Game Of Thrones’s Peter Dinklage, and its director, Sacha Gervasi, this by turns fascinating, tawdry and tragic biopic is based around the events of an interview Gervasi, then a young journalist, conducted with Villechaize in LA in 1993 – a week before the actor committed suicide. Jamie Dornan plays Gervasi’s stand-in, Danny Tate, a newly sober reporter who finds his appointment with Villechaize (Dinklage) turning into a much longer, deeper, and wilder night than expected. Meanwhile, the struggles of Villechaize’s life – from his childhood to the demeaning stereotypes foisted on him by film and TV – and the complexity of his character emerge.
