Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels Cast – Where are they now?
1998 saw the release of Guy Ritchie’s Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, which helped pave the way for the career of Jason Statham and others.
Lock, Stock was Guy Ritchie’s first feature film and paved the way for a new era of British Crime movies. The genre became a cult hit in both the UK and US, with films of a similar style following suit over the next decade.
Alan Ford appeared in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking barrels as Alan, but also narrated the film.
Since appearing in the film, the veteran actor teamed up with Guy Ritchie once again in SNATCH and played Brick Top – who everybody knows him for.
He has appeared in many films and typically plays the same type of character in each. His television credits include Damo and Ivor and Lilyhammer. Ford is currently working on a handful of productions including Winter Ridge.
Prior to Lock, Stock, Jason Flemyng was a known quantity. He’d starred in Rick Tea and Sympathy as well as Doctor Finlay before he landed the role of Tom in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
After his successful role, he teamed up with Guy Richie for the 2000 movie Snatch, which starred many of the same cast as well as Brad Pitt. Flemyng has played a host of characters in a countless list of productions over the years, having never been too far away from the camera.
His most prominent TV roles have come in the past few years, with recurring roles in Save Me, SS-GB and Jamestown to name a few. You’re never far away from Flemyng, who has kept himself very busy throughout his whole career.
Similar to James Flemyng, Dexter Fletcher has worked a very successful television and film career. Previous to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels – where he played Soap – Fletcher had worked on many successful productions including the cult hit Bugsy Malone as well as a recurring role in Press Gang.
Since his role on Lock, Stock, Dexter has worked on a host of productions such as Band of Brothers, Hotel Babylon, Cockneys vs Zombies and St. George’s Day.
