Call in to speak with the host
Eddie Izzard joins Milling About host Robin Milling from London to chat about fulfilling his boyhood dream of being a pirate, as Long John Silver for SyFy's Treasure Island.
Eddie describes the action adventure swashbuckler as the 'Goodfellas' version of the classic story. He tells Robin his tales of not having to find his sealegs as he wound up getting seasick on dry land! He also offers acting tips for working with his faithful parrot co-star. Eddie mastered hobbling about on one leg with a 1700s crutch which he says will come in handy for Treasure Island two.
Watch Treasure Island premiereing Saturday, May 5 on SyFy.
It's good to talk.
