It's the 40th anniversary re-release of the classic Monty Python And The Holy Grail – so we thought it was time to take a look at some of the team’s less well-known post-Python work…
Terry Gilliam’s films (Twelve Monkeys, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas) are pretty well-known, but they’re nothing compared to his greatest work
– that Nike ad
where Eric Cantona is in charge of a match in a ship.
He’s reputed to be the nicest man in TV – so naturally fellow python
Terry Gilliam cast him as a torturer
in the classic
satire Brazil. If you haven’t seen it, check it out now.
The troubled Chapman sadly died in 1989, but he still had time
for some random credits – our favourite is his appearance in the video for the Iron Maiden song Can I Play With Madness.
Did you know the man who sang Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life also played Wreck-Gar in
back in 1986? Neither did we.
He’s had an illustrious career,
so we were as surprised as anybody to learn that Terry Jones narrated The Legend Of Dick And Dom in 2010. Yes, that Dick
Probably Cleese’s least famous credit is in the terrible 1990 comedy Bullseye!, where
he cameod as
‘Man On The Beach In Barbados
Who Looks Like John Cleese’.
_ To celebrate the 40th Anniversary, _ Monty Python and the Holy Grail will be shown in UK cinemas nationwide for one night only TONIGHT, accompanied by a specially filmed, exclusive introduction from The Pythons.
