David Threlfall has been cast for the lead role in a new drama about the late Tommy Cooper.
The film, written by Men Behaving Badly creator Simon Nye, will recreate the agony Cooper faced during the period he was in love with two women – his assistant Mary Kay and his wife Gwen, whom he nicknamed ‘Dove’.
Cooper, a proud member of The Inner Magic Circle, is still fondly remembered for his iconic red fez and unique comedy style where tricks were performed tongue in cheek to produce great laughs from his audience.

Tragically, Cooper died when he suffered a heart attack on stage, but at the height of his fame in the mid-1970’s, he was one of the most famous and successful comedians in the world.

Magic Circle member John Fisher, will be consulting on the film.
