Christopher Guests’ Mascots is now on Netflix UK – and to give you an insight into what it’s like working with the Spinal Tap creator, we’ve got some exclusive interviews with the cast members.
The mockumentary, which star many of his regular troupe of actors, takes place in the ultra-competitive world of sports mascots where they are competing for the most prestigious award in their field, the Gold Fluffy. Among them are a man dressed as a fist (Chris O’Dowd), a woman dressed as an armadillo (Parker Posey), her sister (played by a scene-stealing Susan Yeagley), a guy dressed as a hedgehog (Tom Bennett) and, of course, a world-weary manager (Fred Williard) and two rival celebrity judges (Jane Lynch and Ed Begley Jr).
