Val Kilmer in Life's Too Short role

Val Kilmer will be reunited with Warwick Davis in Life's Too Short

Val Kilmer is to take a guest role in a one-off special of TV comedy Life's Too Short.

The hour-long episode - created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant - is in lieu of a second series of the sitcom starring Warwick Davis.

The programme will reunite Hollywood star Val and Warwick - who worked together 25 years ago on the fantasy film Willow.

Also returning to the mockumentary - which picks up where the series ended - will be Les Dennis, Keith Chegwin and former EastEnders actor Shaun Williamson, who will again play themselves.

In the new film Warwick takes each of them under his wing in the hope of rebooting their careers.

Merchant - who is also directing the programme, along with Gervais - said: "I think fans of Willow are going be really surprised to see Warwick Davis and Val Kilmer reunited on screen. Almost as surprised as Val will be when he finds out what we're paying him."

Warwick said: "Ricky and Stephen's scripts are always a gift to play and the inclusion of Val Kilmer is nothing short of genius."

Life's Too Short - which will also include on-screen roles for Gervais and Merchant - will be screened on BBC Two in the spring.

Putting money into a savings account gives you the freedom to travel, write and study. Don't be ashamed of your needs; they encompass your personality.More
