Walliams for the West End?

Little Britain star poised for Pinter role

David Walliams is set to star in a West End play, it has been reported today.

The Little Britain comic is poised to sign up for a revival of Harold Pinter's drama No Man's Land, according to the Daily Mail.

He would appear opposite Michael Gambon in the 1974 play about an alcoholic writer, Hirst, who invites a penniless poet to his house for a late-night drinking session.

Walliams is expected to play Foster, a servant who works for Hirst, who will be played by Gambon.

The two actors were in separate Stephen Poliakoff TV dramas last year, and met as they did promotional work.

The No Man's Land revival will open at the Gate Theatre in Dublin in late August, before a short London run.
