Disney has released a new featurette for the FX series, “The Full Monty”, which sees the cast behind the characters you’ve come to love, share their favourite moments on set.
Twenty-five years later, we join our original band of Monty men and women in Sheffield for a funny and uplifting story of friendship and community triumphing over adversity. Gaz, Dave and our Northern heroes have settled into a new way of living. Gaz is navigating relationships and escapades with his grown-up police officer son, Nathan, and rebel-teenage daughter, Destiny. Dave and his wife, Jean, now work at the same school and are dealing with some big issues both in and out of the classroom. Lomper and Dennis are married and trying to keep their dwindling, cheekily named Big Baps café afloat. And Horse is simply struggling to make ends meet amidst a crumbling welfare system. Meanwhile, our gentlemanly Gerald plows on in his job at a construction firm. With an entourage of exciting new characters, reconnect and follow the gang in the heartwarming, all-new “The Full Monty.”
Check out the featurette below:
The series stars Robert Carlyle (“Trainspotting,” “Once Upon a Time”) as Gaz, Mark Addy (“Game of Thrones,” “A Knight’s Tale”) as Dave, Lesley Sharp (“Before We Die,” “Scott and Bailey”) as Jean, Hugo Speer (“Britannia,” “Shadow and Bone”) as Guy, Paul Barber (“The Dumping Ground,” “Gloves Off”) as Horse, Steve Huison (“The Royle Family,” “The Navigators”) as Lomper, Wim Snape (“The Beaker Girls,” “Gentleman Jack”) as Nathan and Tom Wilkinson (“Batman Begins,” “Michael Clayton”) as Gerald.
