The Inbetweeners Star James Buckley Says 'There's Not Enough Money In The World' To Get Him To Play Jay Again

Actor James Buckley has revealed that he won't ever reprise his role as Jay from The Inbetweeners if writers were to come to him with a new script. Take a look below:

To all fans of The Inbetweeners, we'd recommend you look away now because all hopes of a reunion are about to be completely destroyed.

Buckley, who played Jay the 'sex pest' in the popular comedy, recently appeared as a guest on The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X and was asked if he'd ever play the iconic character again.


Although the actor admitted that working on set was 'the best job in the world' and he knows that he would have an 'amazing time', he reiterated that he wouldn't be tempted.

In fact, he went as far as to say 'there's not enough money in the world' that would convince him and said that he doesn't want to 'spoil' what was a 'universally loved show'.

Chris asked the actor: "If the people who wrote The Inbetweeners said 'we’ve got a script…


"'It's basically what everyone's up to now, do you want to see it?' You’d say yes?"

Buckley, who starred as the iconic character in three seasons and two films bluntly replied with: "No."   

Moyles then hit back: "What?! Would you not?" to which Buckley explained: "Not because I don't think I would have an amazing time doing it, because I know I would.

"I love the boys, I love the writers. Doing The Inbetweeners was the best job in the world.


"All we did was muck around all day long and they filmed us doing it, and at the end of the day, we might have had an episode, or a TV, you know, or a film or something. It was the best job in the world.

"But it might - you know, as I'm getting older - it's looking like it might be the only thing that I do professionally that is universally loved.

"There's not enough money in the world for me to spoil that."


The Inbetweeners first aired on E4 back in 2008 and although the series came to an end in 2010, The Inbetweeners Movie was released in 2011 which lead to a sequel in 2014 thanks to it's raging popularity.

So sorry, Jay Cartwright fans! This might not be the news you were looking for. However, it's safe to assume that Jay has well and truly 'completed it mate' for the last time.
