'White Gold' stars Ed Westwick, James Buckley and Joe Thomas.
Ed Westwick has joined up with 'The Inbetweeners' stars James Buckley and Joe Thomas as the stars on a sides-splitting new BBC Two comedy about a double-glazing salesman in the eighties entitled 'White Gold'. The 6-part series sees Damon Beesley at the helm and will premiere this month.
James Buckley, Ed Westwick and Joe Thomas star in 'White Gold'
'White Gold' is set in Essex in 1983 and sees 'Gossip Girl''s Ed Westwick as the charismatic salesman Vincent Swan. He is accompanied by his sales team of two; the morally questionable yet charming Fitzpatrick played by James Buckley and the rather more principled Lavender played by Joe Thomas.

The album is set to be released in April 2015 through Capitol Records.
Brian Wilson goes solo again with his forthcoming, pun-laden album release 'No Pier Pressure' which marks his return to former band The Beach Boys' home label Capitol Records and will hit shelves in April.
Brian Wilson returns solo
'No Pier Pressure' is Brian Wilson's eleventh solo venture and follows his 2012 50th anniversary reunion album with The Beach Boys' entitled 'That's Why God Made the Radio', a record which reached number 3 in the US charts and became their highest charting album since 1965's 'Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!)'. The new album also marks his first collection of original material since 2008's 'That Lucky Old Sun'.
Fans of the TV series and 2011 first movie probably won't mind that the filmmakers never bother to develop these characters at all. At least the four lead actors have plenty of charm to paper over the thinly written script, making the most of even the most simpleminded gags while playing up the traits that have kept fans coming back since the TV show debuted in 2008. The actors are now between 27 and 30, but the idiots they play are resolutely stuck in their teens.
Having finally survived high school, Jay (James Buckley) takes a gap year in Australia while his pal Will (Simon Bird) has a lonely first year at university. Even a visit from pals Simon and Neil (Joe Thomas and Blake Harrison) fails to cheer Will up, but a suggestion that they drain their student loans and head Down Under to visit Jay is more like it. Jay has painted a picture of sex-crazed party mayhem, but when they land in Sydney the reality is somewhat different. So when hot babe Katie (Emily Berrington) invites Will to come to Byron Bay with her gang of middle-class hippies, he drags his mates along. But these four guys fail to fit into the backpacking lifestyle, and instead head to the Outback to find Jay's ex.
The film opens in a nicely cinematic style, with slick spoofs of both Harry Potter and Scarface before settling into the usual groove: setting up each sequence as a possibility for sex before everything unravels into humiliating chaos. The problem is that this repetitive cycle is all set-up but almost never any pay-off. A waterslide sequence is a hilarious exception, building a queasy sense of suspense before landing a series of riotously revolting punchlines. But more often the characters are left staring into space before muttering, "OK then," before the screen fades to black as if it's time for an ad break.

Scroll for pictures from the glitzy premiere
The stars were out in force for ‘The Inbetweeners 2’ world premiere last night in London’s West End. The tale of four misfits trying to find their way as young men in the modern world continues with a trip to Australia.
In the sequel, following on from the boys’ trip to Malia, Simon, Will and Neil decide to join Jay on his gap year in Australia, while Simon struggles to dump his overbearing girlfriend.

Turns out 'The Inbetweeners 2' is a fine way to end the boys' story.
Fans of The Inbetweeners have known for some time that the sequel to 2012's box-office busting big screen movie would probably be Simon Bird, James Buckley, Joe Thomas and Blake Harrison's last outing as Will, Jay, Simon and Neil. The boys - whom we first met at a secondary school somewhere in the Home Counties - have only aged about 3 years over an 8 year period of shooting the TV show and the movies, and they've convincingly argued to leave the quartet's story at that throughout just about every publicity interview for their new movie.
The boys are back - down under!
So it's fitting that The Inbetweeners 2 - out in cinemas today (August 6, 2014) - should be everything that drew some 3.7 million viewers to its season 3 finale in 2010.

...And they haven't even put the best jokes in the trailer!
The trailer has finally been released for the long-awaited sequel to 2011's The Inbetweeners Movie, The Inbetweeners 2. Jay, Simon, Neil and Will are back for another round of lewd, rude and cringe-worthy hijinks...but this time they're Down Under.
The Sequel Sees The Guys Applying Their Very Unique Girl-Charming Skills Down Under.
Yes indeed, after the last movie was set mainly in Malia where the guys ventured for their summer holiday, the sequel will be based in Australia as the boys take a gap year before embracing their lives as adults. "You know why they call it Down Under?" says Jay. "'Cause that's where your face spends most of the time."

The four musketeers are back once again after their eventful (and mostly deeply embarrassing) post-A Level escapades in Malia. While we saw them apparently bag themselves the girls of their dreams, unsurprisingly it doesn't look like the romance has lasted and now they are back to their single selves - well, apart from Simon. When Simon, Will and Neil decide to join Jay on his gap year in sunny Australia, Simon struggles to dump his overbearing and uber needy girlfriend. He's still as awkward as ever, Neil's still stupid, Jay is still a total liar and Will's mum is still fit, but the boys have a brand new car now dubbed the 'Mobile Virgin Conversion Unit'. Armed with sunscreen, condoms and bags of charm, these lads are on one last mission to climb the social hierarchy ladder.
'The Inbetweeners 2' follows on from the pre-university lads' holiday of 'The Inbetweeners Movie'; an award winning big screen spin-off of the popular Channel 4 comedy series. With Ben Palmer having directed the first movie, creators of the TV series Damon Beesley and Iain Morris have taken on the role this time while also writing the script. The movie is scheduled to hit the UK and Ireland on August 6th 2014.
'The Inbetweeners Movie 2' will see the fab four going down under.
The cast of The Inbetweeners will be headed to Australia to film the next feature-length chapter in the crude and hilarious exploits of the four friends, Neil, Simon, Jay and Will. The 2011 movie was so well received that the comedy's creators have set their sights on another movie, this time set Down Under, according to Iain Morris and Damon Beesley.
We're Due More Hilarious 'Inbetweeners' Action Next Year.
Producers have confirmed that The Inbetweeners Movie 2 will be shot in Australia this month before the team heads back to the UK in January with a Summer 2014 release date pencilled in, according to distributor EFD, via Digital Spy. There's little confirmed information about the new film's plotline at the moment but the show's creators have revealed where the sequel will be set.

August 2014 will see the boys back for another adventure
The Inbetweeners holds a unique place in British hearts. It started out as a Channel 4 comedy, featuring the burgeoning talents of four young guys, and was quietly adored by a loyal audience.
Suddenly, the indie-pop scene connections got bigger, the in-jokes got quoted and before you knew it, “bus w***er” and “care friend” were basically phrases. People said them as phrases. It became a phenomenon, and while many considered the apex of the franchise to arrive with the first feature film, they’d be wrong.
A second one is on the way, promising more ridiculous girl-hunting, the bonds of friendship and above all, banter fuel, because you haven’t actually got any real things to talk to your mates about anyway, have you? The news was announced via the film’s Facebook page, which, given the target demographic, is the only real place to put it.

Buckley, 25, arrived two hours before the proceedings in a cream coloured Beetle and wore a green kilt after promising pals he would don the traditional Scottish attire. Bride Clair wore a classy lace white satin dress. An insider told The Sun, "It was a wonderful day and everything was perfect. James and Clair seemed so happy and looked fantastic.It was great to see James and the lads together for their big day.They never have any luck with the ladies in the series, but James definitely got the girl this time." A steady stream of guests arrived at the 15th Century Dundas Castle, including actor Danny Dyer, 35, whose girlfriend Jo caught the bouquet. The Football Factory actor tweeted, "F*** me, the old woman caught the bouquet. If West Ham win I'm proposing." Buckley and his bride were also joined by Essex band The Milk, who he's played alongside in the past.
The couple, who live together in Essex, have a enjoyed a whirlwind romance since meeting in August 2010. Buckley and his Inbetweeners co-stars are thought to be in talks for another series of the show, or a potential movie sequel.
