Slater Joins Hitchhiker Radio Cast
Actor CHRISTIAN SLATER is teaming up with a group of British thespians for a BBC radio performance of THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY.
The Hollywood star - who recently made his London stage debut in an adaptation of ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST - will join the cast for the final episode of the RADIO 4 production, which begins on 3 May (05).
Slater will provide the voice for JOHN WATSON, also known as WONKO THE SANE, a character who lives in an inside-out house.
STEPHEN FRY, JACKIE MASON and JONATHAN PRYCE have already been announced as cast members but producers promised a "Hollywood heart-throb" was also going to be involved.
The radio play will follow the eagerly awaited movie release of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - which started out as a radio play in 1978 before DOUGLAS ADAMS' turned it into a now-classic book.
The film, starring SAM ROCKWELL and MARTIN FREEMAN, is due to hit UK cinemas on 28 April (05).20/04/2005 13:49
