Under orders from his boss, the eponymous town planning officer in The Secret World of Michael Fry (2000) shuts down the internet porn business run by Herbie (Michael Kitchen wearing an earring!). When Fry insists that Herbie was booted out of the building for violating the fire code, Herbie is incredulous at his naïveté.
The reviewer for The Mirror wrote:
[Herbie] was a real shock to the system since he was played by Michael Kitchen who a couple of days earlier was seen as the loving dad in The Railway Children.
Typecast, schmypecast. 🙂
