Martin Amis praises Money actor

26th May 2010

Controversial author Martin Amis has praised actor Nick Frost for his performance in the film adaptation of his critically acclaimed book Money.

The writer, who professes to be a 'bad boy' despite being in his 60s, said that Frost's representation of John Self was a 'pleasure to watch'.

He told the Press Association: 'All the performances [were] without weak spots. I thought Nick Frost was absolutely extraordinary as John Self. He fills the character.'

'It's a very unusual performance in that he's very funny, he's physically comic, but he's also strangely graceful,' Amis added.

The writer also commended the BBC for its production values, claiming that the broadcaster had managed to make Money look 'very expensive' despite the relatively tight budget the team had to work with.

Earlier this year, Amis told the Guardian that he still lives in fear of literary critics and revealed that the widespread criticism of Yellow Dog had made him feel uneasy.

He told the paper that he was attacked by practically everyone who could hold a pen after Tibor Fischer opened the floodgates with a scathing put-down.
