Disney XD wanted to raise awareness of the TV animated show Phineas and Ferb here in the UK. Using finished episodes, which hadn’t yet aired in the UK, and with the permission of the US casting team, producer and writers of the show, Michelle cast four household names into cameo roles. Simon Pegg was cast as Paul the delivery man, Jonathan Ross as the Ducky Salesman, Lenny Henry as Iggy and Lorraine Kelly as The Judge. All were recorded at Soho Square Studios, London.
National press, TV and online coverage for the star talent casting initiative was huge to say the least! Were our star talent happy? “Yes, yes, I think they were!”
