The Graham Norton Show on BBC Entertainment on January 28 will feature Hollywood heavyweights Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro, Oscar-nominated British actress Carey Mulligan, comic actor Jonah Hill and singer songwriter Jake Bugg.

Stallone talks about his iconic role of Rocky and admits he wouldn’t let anyone else star in the film while de Niro explains how he had persuaded Stallone to make the comedy Grudge Match. Looking remarkable fit, the duo talk about getting into shape for the movie.

Carey Mulligan talks of the daunting process of auditioning for The Great Gatsby, especially as it involved the scene where Daisy has to kiss Gatsby. “You don’t just kiss Leonardo Di Caprio!” she says.

Jonah Hill talks about being nominated for an Oscar for Moneyball explaining that Dustin Hoffman is the reason he is in films as well as discussing the opportunity of working with Martin Scorsese.

Jake Bugg performs A Song About Love live in the studio, before joining Graham for a chat about his Brit nomination and new album.

The Graham Norton Show can be seen on BBC Entertainment on January 28 at 21h35.
