Ben Whishaw takes on the lead role in the BBC Two adaption of This is Going To Hurt, playing award-winning international multi-million selling author Adam Kay.
Talking about the project, Ben said: "It's an honest, hilarious, heart-breaking look at the great institution and the army of unsung heroes who work there under the most stressful conditions."
Creator and writer, Adam Kay says: “Ben is quite simply one of the finest actors our country has ever produced and a bona fide national treasure. There’s simply no one who could do a better job of playing (a much more handsome version of) me. Best still, I now have an answer to the standard dinner party question: 'Who would play you in the story of your life?'”
