Robert Carlyle (Born: 04/14/1961) in Glasgow, Scotland
Carlyle studied acting at the Royal Scottish Academy of Drama but dropped out after only one term, he went on to co-form Raindog Theatre in 1991. Roberts early roles include a part in Ken Loach film Riff Raff, a brilliant episode of Cracker and the unforgetable Trainspotting. Since then Carlyle has gone on to become a seminal actor and recently stars in 28 Weeks later.
Set 20 years after the original movie, we see our favourite once drug-addled Scotsman reunited. After Renton pledged to make his life better and stop taking heroin, he ran off with the takings of the groups drug-deal and had not been seen by any of the group since. Troublemaker Begbie is still on the wrong side of the law and finds his temper taking control and constantly getting him into trouble, once he's released from jail, causing mayhem comes as standard for the moustachioed brute.
Spud has changed the least but he's still the most genuine member of the group. Sickboy finds himself running a pub a failing pub which he tries to modernise. In a bid to make money, Sickboy finds himself becoming entwined with various shady characters looking to make money by legal and illegal means.
While most of the group have found themselves cutting their intake of heroin, that doesn't mean that they're on the straight and narrow. Each one is still battling various demons from their past and make a living example of the old adage 'old habits die hard'.

Carlyle is returning for the long-awaited sequel along with Ewan McGregor.
Robert Carlyle has promised that his infamous Trainspotting character Francis Begbie will be “scarier” than ever in the film’s upcoming sequel. Carlyle was appearing in Edinburgh alongside Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh and assured fans that they wouldn't be let down by the sequel, which comes 20 years after the original film.
Robert Carlyle has said Begbie will be even scarier 20 years on.
“He is still very much the person that he was,” Carlyle said. “His preferred way of dealing with things is still to be very violent, but he keeps his powder dry, he is more judicious, he is more in control. In some ways, he is more dangerous as a result of that.”

British actor Carlyle will be reuniting with the rest of the cast of the 1996 original when it begins filming next year, and says that John Hodge's script is the best he's ever seen.
Trainspotting was one of the most iconic films of the nineties, as its tale of heroin addicts in Edinburgh caught the imagination of audiences around the world, and the announcement of its eventual sequel, some two decades after the original, has been one of the biggest movie news items of the year.
Robert Carlyle, one of the stars of the 1996 original who is returning to reprise his role as the psychotic Francis Begbie, has been speaking to NME about how much he’s looking forward to reuniting with director Danny Boyle and the rest of the cast – Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner and Jonny Lee Miller - when filming starts next year.
The 54 year old actor, who launched his career on the back of the original, described John Hodge’s script, which is only “very loosely based” on Irvine Welsh’s sequel novel ‘Porno’, as “one of the best scripts” he’s ever seen.

It’s been nearly 20 years since the original film starring Ewan McGregor and Robert Carlyle was released.
Director Danny Boyle has said he plans to begin shooting the long awaited Trainspotting sequel next summer. If all goes to plan Boyle hopes that the film will then hit cinemas later in 2016, in time for the original film’s 20th anniversary.
Danny Boyle hopes to begin shooting Trainspotting sequel next year.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Boyle said that the shoot was planned for “May/June” 2016, but added that it all depends on Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle’s shooting schedules. Both actors are currently tied up with television commitments in the US, with Carlyle starring in ‘Once Upon A Time’ and Miller in ‘Elementary’.

The sequel will be adapted from Irvine Welsh's follow-up novel 'Porno', and will feature Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller and Ewan Bremner.
With five months to go until the classic original movie celebrates its twentieth anniversary, Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle has confirmed that all four of the main cast members of Trainspotting are on board to make a sequel.
Boyle, who was speaking at the Telluride Film Festival ahead of the first-ever screening of the Steve Jobs biopic project he helped to save from oblivion, also announced that the screenplay for the sequel (adapted from Irvine Welsh’s 2002 novel ‘Porno’) had already been written by John Hodge, who was nominated for an Oscar for his work on the first movie in 1997.

Thompson, one of Britain's best-loved entertainers, was speaking to the Radio Times ahead of her new movie 'The Legend of Barney Thomson'.
Beloved English actress Emma Thompson has waded into the debate about gender equality in Hollywood, claiming that, far from making progress since the issue was first seriously raised in the last decade, the industry has gone backwards.
Speaking to the UK entertainment magazine Radio Times, the 56 year old star bemoaned that sexism in the movies was “still completely s***”. She’s one of many recent high-profile names to point out the equality gap in Hollywood, following the likes of Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock and Patricia Arquette.
“I don’t think there’s any appreciable improvement, and I think that, for women, the question of how they are supposed to look is worse than it was even when I was young. So no, I am not impressed, at all. I think it’s still completely s***, actually,” Thompson said.

Barney Thomson is a Glaswegian barber with limited talent when it comes to hair-styling; though what he lacks in skill, he makes up for in passion. It's the only thing remotely interesting that he has in his life, but unfortunately, his boss Wullie is less than happy with his awkward manner in the shop. He wants to let Barney go, but Barney is desperate to hang on to his job and in a frantic struggle he accidentally stabs Wullie to death with some scissors. Scared and ever more desperate, he enlists the help of his ruthless mother to get rid of the body, but it isn't long before the formidable Detective Inspector Holdall starts sniffing around - and Barney is his prime suspect, whether the rest of the force believe it or not.

Danny Boyle has confirmed he is working on a sequel to Trainspotting.
Ewan McGregor's Renton famously announced that he hadn't "felt that good since Archie Gemmill scored against Holland in 1978!" in Danny Boyle's classic Trainspotting in 1996. Now, two decades later, we could find ourselves checking in with the Glasgow addict again, though we doubt he's be feeling particularly euphoric about the state of Scottish football in recent years. After several false starts, filmmaker Boyle says a script for a Trainspotting sequel is in progress, based on Irvine Walsh's 2002 novel Porno. The Manchester-born director - who helmed the Olympic Games opening ceremony in London before turning down a Knighthood from the Queen - is planning to release the new film in 2016, on the 20th anniversary of the original.
"This has been a long time coming," the Oscar winning director told Canadian film website The Playlist. "There's always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2." Encouragingly, Boyle believes the original cast could be re-assembled to play middle-aged versions of their characters, including McGregor. "I don't think there will be any barriers to Ewan or any of the cast coming back.The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw it because they were younger," the filmmaker added.
It's likely that McGregor has been offered various unsavoury Trainspotting-linked projects in the past, though a sequel with Boyle at the helm will no doubt be too good to turn down. The Scottish actor has forged a hugely successful career since the movie, though he's perhaps guilty of taking big money mainstream roles over anything particularly challenging. Another stab at Renton could change that.

Lachlan MacAldonich is an ex Britpop musician whose glory days are well and truly over. He moved to Los Angeles from Scotland twelve years ago and settled comfortably into a lifestyle of farming, market selling and music podcasting on a small scale. Although he adores the country that he is living in, his life in general can sometimes prove too much (or too little) forcing him to drink his problems away at various city bars. After a particularly heavy booze fuelled night, Lachlan is pulled over by the cops and arrested for driving under the influence as he tries to get home. His arrest throws into light previous drug charges that ultimately put his future in the balance as he is threatened with deportation back to the UK. The only way he can remain in the country is if he can prove that his leaving would cause emotional hardship to a wife, child or other relative who is of US citizenship and since Lachlan is divorced with one child who he hasn't seen in several years and has one female friend who visits his farmer's market regularly but is very much out of his league, he hardly has a chance.
'California Solo' is the heart-wrenching story of a forgotten man's quest to bury his past and find a way to lead the life he so wishes to lead. It has been directed and written by Marshall Lewy ('Blue State') and opens in New York on November 30th 2012.
