Rufus Hound, currently touring the U.K. in the National's One Man, Two Guvnors, is to take over in the West End production of that comedy, beginning Feb. 4, 2013, as the lovable chancer Francis Henshall.



Best known as a comedian and TV and radio personality, his work includes seven series of the award-winning "Celebrity Juice," the BBC sitcom "Hounded," "8 out of 10 Cats," "Never Mind the Buzzcocks" and the ITV1 primetime comedy show "Mad Mad World."  He is soon be seen in series 2 of "A Touch of Cloth for Sky."  Radio credits include "Act Your Age" and "My Teenage Diary" for BBC Radio 4, as well as his own comedy show "What's So Funny."  Film credits include "Wedding Video" and "My Big Fat Gypsy Gangster."

One Man, Two Guvnors opened at the National Theatre in May 2011.  In November last year, after its first U.K. tour, the show opened in the West End at the Adelphi Theatre where it completed a sell-out run before transferring to its current home at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket. The Broadway production of One Man, Two Guvnors recently completed its successful run at the Music Box Theatre, where James Corden won the Tony Award for Best Actor.  A second U.K. tour continues to February 2013 with the show embarking on an international tour immediately afterwards.
