Interview: Actor Jim Piddock Talks Acting, Accents, and ‘Best In Show’

Today we spoke with actor Jim Piddock about his career. From breaking into the BBC in his youth to taking the plunge and traveling across the pond to forge his way in Hollywood, Jim took us through a few key moments in his life. We also explore why Americans are so fascinated with British accents.
The stories he shared with us and more can be found in his upcoming autobiography Caught with My Pants Down and Other Tales from a Life in Hollywood. The book will be released on March 23 in Kindle form for $5.99. It can be pre-ordered now at Amazon.
Jim Piddock has appeared in a number of fantastic comedies, including Christopher Guest’s Best In Show and A Mighty Wind. More recently, Mr. Piddock has had roles in Star Trek: Lower Decks, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and HBO’s Family Tree.


For more than four decades, Jim Piddock has navigated the turbulent waters of Broadway and Hollywood as an actor and a writer. In this highly entertaining and witty account of his journey from a small village in England to the heady heights of the Hollywood Hills, he pulls back the curtain—with remarkable honesty and humour—to reveal what really goes on behind the scenes in the entertainment industry.
But underneath this lighthearted, irreverent romp through the world of show business—and Jim’s involvement with Crystal Palace Football Club in his spare time—lie some deeper reflections and the incisive conclusions on what the real meaning of family is, how to make destiny-defining choices, and the importance of living life to the fullest.

Check out the reels below for more snippets of Mr. Piddock’s previous roles.
