TS from the forum came across this brilliant interview with Tom for Verve magazine, to promote the film I Want Candy. The transcript is here.
Maidstone's very own Tom Riley is soon to become a household name as he stars in the brand new comedy from Ealing Studios – I Want Candy. Set to be this year's juiciest British comedy, the film also features Hollywood pin-up Carmen Electra, Eastenders' star Michelle Ryan, and a host of Class A British comedy performers including MacKenzie Crook (Pirates Of The Caribbean I&II, The Office) and Jimmy Carr (Stormbreaker, 8 out of 10 cats).
I Want Candy follows two hopeful young men from Leatherhead trying to break into the movie-making world, who stumble upon the opportunity of a lifetime. Frustrated by the limitations of college and their pessimistic film tutor, London beckons for wannabe producer Joe (Tom Riley) and his talented but neurotic friend Baggy (Tom Burke). The pair pitch their feature-length love story, The Love Storm, to a number of studios, only to be met with instant rejection.
