Peter Serafinowicz is a mad man. Best known as the voice of Darth Maul, and as Shaun’s less compassionate flatmate in Shaun of the Dead, he’s also a UK TV star, with his shows “Look Around You”, and “The Peter Serafinowicz Show.” Recently he’s branched into working stateside with a supporting role on the now-cancelled “Running Wilde,” and a humorous part in Couples Retreat. Serafinowicz also directs music videos, and his most recent for Alex Metric and Steve Angello stars Serafinowicz as Rocky, who signs up to fight against ED 210 (I guess a new model of the RoboCop baddie) Take a look…
Serafinowicz takes a clever idea and nails it here. He also gives good Stallone, with great work by his Mickey and Adrian fakes. I’m also found of the floating ball, which seems to be a reference to Star Wars. The music’s not bad either.
If you haven’t seen the first season of “Look Around You” it’s on DVD stateside now, and it’s a perfect look into the mind and sensibilities of Peter Serafinowicz and his sometimes collaborator Robert Popper. Hopefully someone will give him the money to make a feature-length film.
Would you watch a full movie of Rocky fighting Ed 210?
