Dougray Scott has reportedly signed up for James Corden’s new comedy project The Wrong Mans.

The Scottish actor is best known for his roles in Mission Impossible II, My Week with Marilyn and * Desperate Housewives*.

Other actors confirmed for the series include Dawn French, who will play Corden's mum, Silent Witness star Emilia Fox and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels actor Nick Moran.

Prometheus star Benedict Wong, Dan Renton Skinner (best known for playing Angelos Epithemiou on Shooting Stars), The Thick of It actress Rebecca Front and Him & Her's Sarah Solemani will also appear in the series.

The original concept for the new TV show was developed while Corden and Baynton worked together on Gavin & Stacey.

The programme follows hopeless pals Phil Bourne and Sam Pinkett whose pointless lives are turned upside-down by a chance phone call and a case of mistaken identity.

The pair find themselves in the middle of a world filled with unexpected international conspiracy and intrigue, and they cross paths with mysterious Scarlett (Fox) and Stevens (Moran) as the chaos gets under way.

The Wrong Mans will air later this year on BBC Two.
