Danny Dyer joins Nativity! The Musical
EastEnders star Danny Dyer has signed up to appear in Nativity! The Musical.
The actor will join comic Jo Brand in a London run of the show.
Dyer, who recently won a Best Soap Actor award, will play The Hollywood Producer and Brand will appear as The Critic.
They will appear in the London run of the production at the Eventim Apollo in December.
The musical comedy tells the story of school children who decide to put on a musical version of a nativity.
Dyer said: “To be honest, it feels like it’s ages away – but I am well up for the challenge of being The Hollywood Producer and getting proper festive!”
Brand added: “My family say I’m always very critical so I’m looking forward to putting that talent to good use and getting in the festive spirit as The Critic.”
Dyer, who plays Mick Carter in EastEnders, was recently honoured at the TV Choice Awards.
He later joked: “I would like to believe that I got this award for being a blinding actor, but it’s probably because my daughter Dani won Love Island.”
Dyer and Brand will appear at the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith, from December 19 to 31.
