The Full Monty Cast – Where Are They Now?

A fantastic yet underrated British comedy film, The Full Monty centers around Sheffield man Gaz, played by Robert Carlyle, who had lost his job after the steel factory he worked at closed, and learns that his wife is planning on suing him for his missed child support payments.

Desperate to get some money, Gaz and his mate Dave, played by Mark Addy, are inspired by a Chippendale show to start their own male strip-tease act. They get four other men to join, including their old foreman, played by Tom Wilkinson, and a security guard played by Steve Huison. They’re sure that the show will succeed as they’re planning to do “the Full Monty” which is to go completely naked.

Everybody remembers the iconic post office scene where they start to dance to the song “Hot Stuff” while queuing for their dole money.
