MARTIN COMPSTON could be set for a new role after being spotted popping in for a pint at the Clansman pub favoured by Jack and Victor in Still Game.
The Scots star was pictured with fellow actor, Gianni Capaldi, as they took in the sights and sounds of the fictional town ‘Craiglang’,
It’s not known if Boaby the barman was there to serve him or whether he shared a pint with Jack and Victor but the film star looked very pleased to visit their local.
Compston, who starred in ‘The Wee Man’ and smash-hit BBC drama, ‘Line of Duty’, shared an image of himself outside the famous pub with his 50,000 Twitter followers yesterday evening.
Gianni Capaldi has posted an image of the two of them on set saying they had popped in for a pint, which Compston retweeted and said: “When passing Craiglang be rude not to fire in for one!”
His fans were quick to respond, with one asking if Compston – a Celtic fan- if he’d be watching their Champion’s League match in the pub.
@ropoem asked: “Is the game on in there tomorrow?”
To which @frankie_gault replied: “It’ll probably be the Domino Olympics instead.”
@PaulieWalnutes asked: “Has Boaby still got a feather cut?”
And @mtoafc was clearly a Still Game fan, writing: “Loved that programme #beefybake.”
Filming for the latest series of Still Game is underway after nearly a ten year break.
Writers and lead actors, Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill, have penned the new series following the massive success of the Still Game stage show.
The 21-night live show at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow took place 18 months ago and was a hit, playing to huge sell-out audiences.
Jack and Victor first appeared on TV well over a decade ago and soon captured an army of fans from across the nation before the last episode aired in 2007.
The first episode of the new series is set air later this year
