John Cleese joins the cast of The Seventh Python
Comedy genius and legend John Cleese shared his reflections and hilarious insights with the Frozen Pictures team during filming today for the nonfiction feature film, The Seventh Python. Cleese compared the work of the film's subject, Monty Python collaborator Neil Innes, to that of Charlie Chaplin and Steve Martin.
He said Innes' contribution to modern comedy and music is "irreplaceable."
Said executive producer Sean Connors, who was at Cleese's home office in Montecito, California: "Mr. Cleese was more generous with his time and spirit than we could have asked. He made a couple of dry, hilarious comments that were so funny that we had to stop the interview because we couldn't help but laugh out loud."
Meanwhile, our work on the Michael Lohan project continues in New York. So we'd say we're working coast-to-coast.
Next stop... London... for the final round of Seventh Python shoots.
