FX will be hoping that they have another hit television show on their hands in the form of Mr Inbetween, a black comedy-drama series. Damon Herriman plays the character of Freddy in this TV show and he spoke to Collider about Mr Inbetween.
One of the things that Damon Herriman talked about was the parallels between Mr Inbetween and Justified:
“Interestingly, I think there are some parallels with Justified, in that it’s a drama with a lot of dark humor and a bit of violence. There’s also a lot of crime. I guess the major difference in Mr Inbetween is that the hero, or central character, is on the criminal side of things, rather than the law-abiding side.”
Damon Herriman also discussed how his involvement with Mr Inbetween all came about:
“Yeah, I’ve known Nash [Edgerton], the director, for many years. We’ve worked together a few times on short films, on music videos, on a feature film that Nash directed, and recently on a feature that Nash produced, so we go back quite a ways, probably 20 years.”
“And Scott [Ryan] and I had actually met around the same time that Nash met him, when there was a short film version of the Ray Shoesmith story. There was a short film, called The Magician, that was more of a mockumentary style, but other than that, it was very similar, in terms of it being a dark comedy.”
“The character was very much the same. And then, Nash ended up working with Scott to turn it into a feature length version of that story. That was about 12 years ago, so it’s amazing that now here we are, making this TV series version, and it’s even more amazing that it’s playing in the States. It’s very exciting.”
