British actor Martin Freeman fears being typecast as an average Joe after his roles in The Office and THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY.

Freeman portrayed lovesick stationary employee TIM in BBC comedy The Office, before assuming a similarly lacklustre character in romantic comedy Love Actually, but declares he is fed up of playing bland personalities.

He says, "When people call me an everyman they think it's a compliment. I want to rip their f**king eyeballs out.

"I don't want to be the cosiest man in Britain; it's not the way I feel about the world or the job I do."
