David described his role as in the film as "In older days Id call it a small part, but now Im allowed to call it a cameo!" However David spent several days filming the part both while he was still playing Hamlet in Stratford and during the following week. The fact that other actors list him as one of the characters tends to indicate that he is making more than a cameo appearance!
