MacKenzie Crook to join cast of The Café

The Office and Pirates of the Caribbean star will apparently have some body odour issues…

The cast of Sky One’s The Café are to get a bit of a stinky new co-star… MacKenzie Crook.


Crook will play nurse Dave, who works in a local nursing home in Weston-super-Mare, and apparently isn’t too friendly with a can of deodorant.

Sky One told “Dave has some body odour issues – he isn’t a huge fan of deodorant or even soap and water.”

Dave is the oddball friend of Richard, a care assistant by day and a musician by night, played by Ralf Little (who co-wrote the series with Michelle Terry) in the comedy.

MacKenzie has recently been a part of hit show Game of Thrones, playing the character of Orell.  


The Café will be back on screens from next Wednesday, 9pm. Crook will appear in the show next month.
