McGregor will play the candelabra Lumiere in Disney’s upcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast. McGregor will join Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston and Ian McKellan as Cogsworth.
McGregor says independence is not worth breaking up the union:
I’m a Scotsman and I love Scotland with all my heart. But I also like the idea of Great Britain, and I don’t know that it wouldn’t be a terrible shame to break it all up.
McGregor guests on Conan to promote his film Salmon Fishing In The Yemen. He also reacts to Louis C.K.’s shout-out in his stand-up special and talks about flying a jet around Scotland with his brother.
I’m just here mainly to tell you that Salmon Fishing In The Yemen is not a documentary film about salmon fishing in the Yemen. However, it is a film about salmon fishing in the Yemen, and once you’ve seen it, you’ll wonder what else it could ever have been called.
McGregor gives an interview to The Talks. He discusses his motorcycle adventures, the best soundtrack to riding a bike, and whether he will let his children ride motorcycles.
Yeah, yeah, of course. I would because then I would teach them to ride. My wife would never allow it, so they won’t. They will probably never ride bikes. But I would teach them how to do it properly. I drive quite safe; I am not a particularly fast driver. I am much more interested in the feeling of it and the relaxing nature of it. If I go out and ride too fast on roads that I am not too familiar with I get in trouble and then there’s fear and that’s not what I want to experience. I drive slowly and I’m quite happy with it like that.
