The Undoing finale aired this past Sunday and left viewers in a tizzy. We won't spoil the ending for you, but... it was definitely satisfying (at least on this end). And, even more so, was Hugh Grant's performance as charismatic pediatric oncologist Jonathan Fraser.
It's one of those roles where, when the series comes to an end, it's like, "Now what?" Grant is definitely in a position to be choose-y about what comes next.
In an interview with Vulture, he kind of let it slip, saying, "I’m doing a thing tomorrow, actually. Charlie Brooker has written a mockumentary about 2020. It’s for Netflix, and I am a historian who’s being interviewed about the year."
He goes on to describe his character a bit: "I’m pretty repellent, actually! And you’ll like my wig."
Repellent? That doesn't sound like a Hugh Grant character at all... <-- sarcasm, aka Daniel Cleever.
Also, a wig? Now we're definitely intrigued.
Grant pulled off an amazing cockney accent in last year's The Gentlemen, so we're really trusting him these days to add onto the character.
Brooker is probably best known for creating and writing the sci-fi series Black Mirror, that leans toward horror-thriller, depending on the episode.
If you don't know what we mean by that, here's a peek at the trailer for the episode of "Playtest," that has all three elements:
We can only imagine what his upcoming project with Grant might entail.
If Black Mirror results in nightmares, what will a Charlie Brooker mockumentary bring?
