Jerry, who is also serving as director, recently shed light on how he managed to get Hugh on board, revealing that it was the first time the Hollywood favorite filmed an audition tape in around 30 years.

‘Everybody I asked said ‘yes’, so we ended up with this crazy cast,’ he boasted to Empire, before raving about the Bridget Jones actor’s efforts as a disgruntled Shakespearean actor who is forced to sport the outfit.

‘That was the greatest part of the whole thing, honestly. Because I am a crazy fan of his.

‘[Hugh] asked me if it matters that Tony the Tiger has a British accent. I told him, “No, who cares?”’

However, despite stealing our hearts in Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill over the years, Hugh recently admitted he’s on the hunt for more ‘interesting roles’.

In a new interview on the Drew Barrymore Show, he opened up about a change in his career, telling the host: ‘I got a little less bad after I had children, got married, got happier.

‘I got too old and fat and ugly to do romantic comedies obviously, so I got off with more interesting things.’

‘I love those films. I love the fact that people still like them, but I never felt comfortable really doing them,’ he added of the ‘sweeter’ roles of his career.

‘I don’t know about you, but I prefer more of a mask. I want to be someone else. Then it frees me up and then I quite like acting.’
