Ewan McGregor Is Ready For A 'Trainspotting' Sequel: 'I'd Be Up For It'

Ewan McGregor Is Ready For A 'Trainspotting' Sequel: 'I'd Be Up For It'

Ewan McGregor is looking mighty fine in this black and white shot from his brand new feature for Details magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 43-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On starring on Broadway for the first time in The Real Thing: “I was never asked to do it! No, I’ve got a wife and kids, and I was never willing to move my whole family from L.A. to New York. It’s such a clever play, and I get to be smart and a bit smug and arrogant every night. And I didn’t have to come up with any of these clever thoughts on my own, which is the beauty of being an actor, really.”

On filming a Trainspotting sequel: “It looks like it might happen. The idea is that we shoot it in 2016, which would be 20 years after the original came out. And I’d be up for it. I wouldn’t have been 10 years ago, but I am now.”

On whether he’s done a film just for money: “There have been films I’ve done where I’ve been very happy to have reached my last day on set, but not many. And I’ve never started a film with anything other than enthusiasm.”

Also pictured: Ewan and his wife Eve Mavrakis attending The Go Campaign Benefit at FIKA on Sunday (October 26) in New York City.
