May 16, 2021

In The Loop Quotes:

Malcolm Tucker:
I know it was you who leaked Linton’s war committee.

Toby Wright:
Oh, right… it wasn’t?

Malcolm Tucker:
“It wasn’t?” That’s what you’re going to say when they come and slip a hood over your head and fly you off to Diego Garcia and carry out a cavity search?

Toby Wright:
I don’t actually recall. It was a very busy time.

Malcolm Tucker:
That’s better. Okay, I am putting you on a probationary period from today until the end of recorded time.

Toby Wright:
All right.

Malcolm Tucker:
Do you understand?

Toby Wright:
Yes-

Malcolm Tucker:
You’re my guy now, right? I own you, you are my Kunta Kinte- go and get your f***ing laptop!

IN THE LOOP is a foul-mouthed comedy that draws on non-specific events to create a world that is terrifyingly familiar: The US President and UK Prime Minister fancy a war, but not everyone agrees that war is a good thing.

US General Miller (James Gandolfini The Sopranos, The Taking Of Pelham 123) certainly doesn’t think so and neither does the British Secretary of State for International Development, Simon Foster (Tom Hollander Pirates of the Caribbean, Pride and Prejudice).

But when the mild-mannered minister inadvertently appears to back the war on prime-time television, he immediately attracts the attention of the PMs venomously aggressive communications chief Malcolm Tucker (reprised from The Thick of It by Peter Capaldi), who latches onto him like a hawk. Soon, the Brits are in Washington, where diplomatic relations collide with trans-Atlantic spin doctors and Fosters off-hand remark quickly spirals into an insurmountable mountain of conflict.
