Jim Piddock joins "Kill Your Friends" novel-based Britpop comedy

Jim Piddock joins

PanARMENIAN.Net - English actor and writer Jim Piddock has been cast in the dark comedy Kill Your Friends, based on the novel by John Niven, Deadline said.

BAFTA-nominated Owen Harris (Holy Flying Circus) directs the pic about an A&R man (X-Men‘s Nicholas Hoult) during the Britpop music wave of the late ’90s who goes to extremes to find the next hit.

Piddock, a frequent Christopher Guest player, will play Derek Sommers, the managing director of the record label. Author Niven adapted his own screenplay for Kill Your Friends, which Gregor Cameron and Will Clarke are producing.

Piddock next appears in Think Like A Man Too with Kevin Hart. He and Guest co-created last year’s HBO original series Family Tree, in which they also appeared opposite Chris O’Dowd.
