A second season of the hilarious and wonderfully, absurdly beautiful show The Trip with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon is getting a second season. And apparently, they’ll imitate Tom Hardy (or rather Bane, it seems). The inimitable Mr Hardy! How will that turn out, I wonder. I can’t wait. :)
Now you’ve gone on to make a second season, which is set to air next year. What can you reveal about it?
Well, we shot it in Italy. I always say to people, “It’s exactly the same as the first one, only this time it’s in Italy.” So the scenery and the food is way better.
And actually, the resolution, the direction of the story shifts from the first one. But it’s not groundbreakingly different, to be honest, and in fact some of the same impersonations occur in this film as well. So it’s quite shameless. Shamelessly repetitive.
[Laughs] Are there any new impersonations to look forward to? Or is it all just shameless repetition?
Yeah, I think we throw a few more in. I only saw the rough cut, but I think Peter Sellers is in there. And Christian Bale and Tom Hardy from Batman. We do a Batman thing.
