Depp is known to be a fan of British comedy. "The Office is unbelievable but I still, y’know, I keep going back to The Fast Show because it’s, for me, it’s the top of the top," he said about the series in a Radio One interview.
"I told Paul Whitehouse, I think the first time I met him, I told him, I said, you have to make this a film… I’d do it in a second."
The movie never arrived, but in The Last Fast Show Ever, he got to live the dream, playing an "American tourist" who visits the shop of slimy suit sellers Ken and Kenneth (Whitehouse and Mark Williams) to get something for a night out. Suits you, sir!
