Matt Berry is planning more Toast of London

I am currently watching Matt Berry be a vampire in the excellent What We Do In The Shadows TV show and yesterday saw the trailer for his new show, Year of the Rabbit.

However, it seems we may be getting to see his character Steven Toast and hear Clem Fandango once again. Berry had been talking to The Guardian and mentioned that he was planning on writing the fourth series of Toast of London.

Steven Toast, an eccentric middle-aged actor with a chequered past, spends more time dealing with his problems off stage than performing on it.

He’s just not sure when he’ll have time to write it. For three and a half months a year, he’s in the US, filming What We Do In the Shadows.

Berry had this to say about why he wanted to play Steven Toast once again:

Because he’s the anti-me. I wrote him because I met so many actors who are utterly vicious about other actors – always frustrated, bitter and cynical. I’m not. I’m doing all the things I ever wanted. More than I ever imagined. I never dreamed of being a comedian. I never imagined I’d be a clown. There aren’t enough hours in the day. But otherwise, I’m living the life I wanted.

This is great news as I do love the show. I just hope he gets a chance to put it together soon.

Year Of The Rabbit begins at 10pm on Channel 4 this Monday, 10th June. What We Do In The Shadows is broadcast in the UK on Sunday evenings by BBC Two.
