Inbetweeners James Buckley: 'I auditioned for Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa'

By
James Buckley has revealed that he auditioned for a role in Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa.

The Inbetweeners star - who turned 26 yesterday (August 14) - went to see the movie with his wife Clair Meek and suggested to his Twitter followers that his nerves prevented him from securing the part.

He tweeted: "Off to see alpha papa this afternoon with my wife for my birthday!

"i read for a part in AlphaPapa. Embarrassingly Im such a Coogan geek i was literally star struck of the script. Was V nervous, I wasn't cast."

The Steve Coogan comedy has topped the UK box office this week, taking £2.175 million.

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Buckley and his Inbetweeners co-stars Simon Bird, Blake Harrison and Joe Thomas would reprise their roles for a sequel to their 2011 movie.

The Inbetweeners Movie 2 is due to open in UK cinemas in August 2014.
