[show]In an interview for The Culture Show Uncut (UK) Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain said that two of the main inspirations for Peep Show were the scene in Annie Hall where Alvy and Annie are talking and their real thoughts are shown as subtitles, and also the documentary "Being Caprice" (2000) (which in turn was inspired by Being John Malkovich), which used a POV style of filming that they thought was an arresting technique which would go well with the inner thoughts/voice-overs of Mark and Jeremy. They also cited Danny in Withnail & I as an inspiration for the quirky, drug-addled Super Hans (also the dynamic of an even weirder third character alongside a double act).
- Super Hans was originally written with Danny Dyer in mind. Russell Brand also auditioned for the part and Jake Wood was one of the final three before Matt King was cast.
