“I think I was just kind of babbling the entire time about what I wanted to do with the role and what I thought I could bring and please cast me.

“Basically, it was just kind of me just pitching him. Just begging.”

The confession follows the announcement that Knives Out WILL receive the sequel treatment, with Daniel Craig’s eccentric detective Benoit Blanc also back for a second run.

It’s thought the movie will see Blanc investigate another suspicious murder, with Rian Johnson once again returning to write and direct.
