When it comes to films, Hugh Grant is an underrated actor who has seen the likes of Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’s Diary and Love Actually. Grant is known for his rugged good looks and his subtle quick-wit humor. He effortlessly nails his roles, though you can tell the amount of irony he includes in his performances is something he has perfected.
And though Grant is known for his rom-com career, the actor joined the cast of Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. Grant and his castmates sat down for an interactive panel today at San Diego’s Comic-Con to give their thoughts on what brought them to lend their talents to the movie. Grant mentioned he thought the script was very funny, saying “I hate all scripts. I’m notorious(ly) negative…(but) I thought it had a very Monty Python vibe to it.”
Obviously, there’s a bit of Hugh charm in that answer, but he’s making a statement. He expects this movie to pull elements from the greatness that is Monty Python. For those who might not know, Monty Python and The Holy Grail was released in 1975 to critical acclaim and forever changed the landscape of comedy with its wild humor. Movies like Austin Powers and shows like Family Guy and The Simpsons were directly influenced by this style of comedy. If Dungeons and Dragons is remotely in this stratosphere, hand Grant his Oscar now!
You can get in on all the action when Dungeons & Dragons hits theaters on March 3, 2023.
