Mark Ronson and Paul Bettany on the red carpet for Mortdecai

Paul Bettany, who plays Jock Strapp in the new action-comedy Mortdecai, chatted with London Live about the "weirdest things about Johnny", referring to his co-star Johnny Depp. Paul describes how Depp was obsessed with Ealing comedies as a child, an influence which has filtered down to the slapstick humour in Mortdecai. 

Bettany also says how much he is missing London and why he can't wait to return to the capital after years living in New York. He says spending eight months out of 12 in London was "brilliant for me... the city feels incredibly vibrant and alive again." He says that he's very much looking forward to "feeling like a Londoner again".
