Inbetweeners Actor James Buckley To Star In The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman

Inbetweeners star James Buckley, who we all know as foul-mouthed sex-crazed Jay, is set to be a hit in Hollywood.

Buckley has landed a role in upcoming film The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman, where he will star alongside the likes of Shia LaBeouf and Melissa Leo.

The Sun reported a source as saying: “James hoped The Inbetweeners Movie would lead to bigger things — but this is pretty impressive.”

“He fitted the mould of the character perfectly and was the outstanding choice.

“It’s a big chance to establish himself in Hollywood.”

Buckley has already moved away from the north west London set of The Inbetweeners, setting up home with girlfriend Clair Meek and their baby son, Harrison.
