Michael “Bully” Herbig: “Til and I have known each other a while”

Playing a timid bank employee, the German star of comedy Michael “Bully” Herbig creates a humorous character in the crime comedy “Vier gegen die Bank” [four against the bank]. His film “Bullyparade: The film” is set to be explosive in 2017.

Michael loved filming “Vier gegen die Bank” with Til Schweiger, Matthias Schweighöfer and Jan Josef Liefers: “Til and I have known each other for a while and we filmed ‘(T)Raumschiff Surprise’ together,” Herbig explains. “So you know what to expect. Matthias and I have crossed paths a fair few times and we get on. We were determined to do something together at some point. But it never happened. And Jan Josef is a treasure anyway. I had never worked with him but it was some sort of love at first sight, somehow thrilling and exciting with what was going to happen, but I wasn’t worried.” But Herbig can look forward to 2017’s cinematic year even more, as he will be launching his “Bullyparade” gags on the big screen for the first time.
