Mackenzie Crook looks unrecognisable as lovable scarecrow Worzel Gummidge in the BBC Christmas reboot – The Sun

ACTOR Mackenzie Crook looks like he's drawn the short straw — by wearing prosthetics make-up to play scarecrow Worzel Gummidge in the BBC reboot.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star wore a turnip mask in a first look at the telly adaptation of Barbara Euphan Todd’s classic books.

He will cause trouble on Scatterbrook Farm in the role made famous by the late Jon Pertwee in the 70s and 80s TV show Worzel Gummidge, which also featured Una Stubbs as Aunt Sally.

Mackenzie said he has “completely fallen” for the “charming, irreverent scarecrow.”

Mackenzie, 47, also writes and directs the two hour-long BBC1 films reportedly airing around Christmas.
