Cast confirmed for Christmas Black Mirror

by | Sep 30, 2014 | All, TV News

Channel 4 have confirmed the cast for the festive episode of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror which is expected in December.

Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Rafe Spall (One Day, I Give It A Year) and Oona Chaplin  (The Crimson Field) have all signed on for the 90-minute special. 

The feature-length episode tells three interwoven stories of Yuletide techno-paranoia and will start filming this week.

Jon Hamm’s character appears in all three stories contained within the as yet unnamed episode, binding them together into a suitably unsettling whole.

Jon Hamm said: “I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the Black Mirror Christmas Special. I have been a massive fan of the show since its inception.

Its dark humour and intelligent observation of our society and values hooked me deeply as a viewer and I’m honoured that Charlie and the rest of the creative team have asked me to participate in wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.”

Creator Charlie Brooker said: “I’m revoltingly happy that Jon, Rafe and Oona are participating in the horrible pageant that is Black Mirror. As far as I’m concerned their presence is a huge Christmas present that’s arrived early.”
