Chris Langham - Chris Langham Makes Acting Comeback After Jail Sentence

Chris Langham, the British actor who was jailed for downloading child pornography in 2007, has landed his first role since his arrest. Langham, whose performances in 'The Thick of It' were heralded by critics, will appear alongside comedian Simon Amstell in the low-budget movie 'Black Pond'.
The actor, who was found guilty of possessing indecent images of children, has not worked in television since his conviction. In his new movie, Langham plays a middle class father whose family are accused of murder when a stranger dies in their house. Speaking about 'Black Pond', Langham told The Independent, "I was just grateful for the opportunity to work. That the script was brilliant and the creative team so talented was an unbelievable bonus". The film has reportedly been made by directors Will Sharpe and Tom Kingsley for just $25,000. Langham won a Bafta in 2006 for his performance as the government minister Hugh Abbot in the first two series of award winning British comedy 'The Thick of It'. Despite being almost 60-years-old, he was widely regarded as one of the country's most promising comedy talents.
Chris Langham's new movie 'Black Pond' will receive a limited theatrical release in the UK on 11th November 2011.
