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.”

Ewan McGregor Calls Autograph Hunters 'Parasitical Lowlifes'

Ewan McGregor poses for a portrait featured in the new Details issue for November 2014.

Here is what the 43-year-old actor, currently appearing on Broadway in the play The Real Thing, had to share with the mag:

On his Star Wars fans: “I don’t have any experience with them. I’ve never been to one of the conventions. The people I meet are the f–kers who want me to sign Star Wars photos so they can sell them on the Internet or the people at premieres who are crushing children against barriers to get me to sign their f–king picture of Obi-Wan Kenobi. They’re not fans—they’re parasitical lowlifes and f–king wankers.”

On his opinion of Phantom Menace: “I watched it once, at the premiere, so I’m not in a good position to judge. They had a tall order, the three films I did. The fans waited so long and wanted to feel like they did when they watched the first film, but they were grown-ups by that time. I don’t mind the criticism. I’ve heard it to my face.”

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.”

She added, “I do think we need to be talking about the violence in the world, in terms of Iraq, violence towards women, education and women, what’s happening in Afghanistan.
