'Trainspotting 2' Cast Recreate Iconic Poster On Graham Norton
The cast of Trainspotting have recreated the legendary movie poster from the original 1996 film.
Ewan McGregor and co. appeared on The Graham Norton Show on Friday night to promote the release of the sequel, T2, which catches up with iconic characters Begbie, Sick boy, Spud and Renton among others.
Although Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Ewen Bremner and Ewan were all present, Kelly MacDonald, who played Renton's love interest, Diane, in the gritty drama, wasn't in attendance, meaning host Graham Norton had to step in with the help of a wig.
Director Danny Boyle was jokingly asked to 'get out' of shot as Norton dished out wigs and props to the actors, including an OTT blonde wig for Miller and wide-rimmed glasses for Bremner. They nailed the shot, as you can see here...

During the in-depth interview, on the BBC's Friday night Graham Norton Show, Bremner joked about the poster which was taken straight after the film wrapped.
"I think I remember traveling in a taxi with you at like 5am in the morning to go to Glasgow airport after the wrap party so we could go down and do this shoot in London," Bremner said to Jonny Lee Miller.
"I'd known Johnny as a Scotsman the entire shoot, and so in the taxi after the wrap party he started talking to me in his own accent, and I was really disoriented."
Boyle also described how he and McGregor didn't speak for a decade after he decided to cast Leonardo DiCaprio over the Scotsman in The Beach after collaborating on three films in a row.
"It was a misunderstanding and a mishandling of a situation... It's a big regret of mine that it went on for so long and a real shame we didn't work together all those years," McGregor said.
"I had been in Danny's first three films and then I wasn't asked to be in his fourth - The Beach - but it wasn't really about the film, it was about our friendship... You can only fall out with someone you love."
"I handled it very badly and I've apologised to Ewan," Boyle added. "I feel a great shame about it that is difficult to explain.
"He handled it with enormous grace and courage. Someone asked him to present an award to me for Slumdog Millionaire and he did it and made this amazing speech and I was in tears back stage. I'm very grateful to him."
