Toby Jones to star Worzel Gummidge

OHMYGOSSIP — Toby Jones has landed a role in an upcoming episode of ‘Worzel Gummidge’.
The 55-year-old actor is joining a slew of previously announced guest stars in the new three episode run which follow on from the 2019 series.
The new episodes will see Jones play all six roles on a village committee in an episode titled ‘Guy Forks’.
Mackenzie Crook – who serves as writer and director on the show, as well as playing the titular talking scarecrow – said: “I’m thrilled to bring three new episodes of ‘Worzel Gummidge’ to audiences this year and to announce the quite brilliant cast. We had a happy summer making these films and I hope some of that comes across on screen.”
Crook and Jones will be reunited for the first time on screen since they appeared together in BBC programme ‘Detectorists’, which was penned by Crook.
Executive producer Kristian Smith said: “It’s always the greatest joy and privilege to be in Scatterbrook and the Ten Acre Field.
“Our exceptional cast and crew make the entire experience such a pleasure. Mackenzie Crook leads with humanity and that translates in these beautiful films.
“Our three original stories will charm and amuse audiences of all ages.”
Crook’s series is based on the books by Barbara Euphan Todd. Her 10 tomes were previously made into a television series in the 1970s and starred John Pertwee in the title role alongside Una Stubbs as Aunt Sally.
‘Worzel Gummidge’ will also star comedian Bill Bailey, ‘Gentleman Jack’ star Rosie Cavaliero, ‘Afterlife’ actor Paul Kaye, Vicki Pepperdine and ‘The Stranger’ actress India Brown.
Announcing the new series, BBC’s Head of Comedy Tanya Qureshi said: “Worzel and the magical cast of characters that inhabit Scatterbrook are back once again and we can’t wait for audiences to see what Mackenzie and the crew have brought to life in these new instalments. These wonderful films are exactly the comforting tonic we could all use right now.”
