Jason Maza and Nick Nevern

Both Nick Nevern and Jason Maza have been making their faces known through British television and film – including both having done the obligatory acting rite of passage of appearing on The Bill – with a blend of dark humour and a passion for all things football, and most things hooligan.

With The Hooligan Factory, the latest piece of black satire from Nevern’s mind, comedy seeps into the well-worn hooligan-film formula to deliver something we haven’t quite seen before. Here, the stars talk about how they got there.

The Hooligan Factory is out in cinemas now.
