Mackenzie Crook has his dad's hobbies

Mackenzie Crook is turning into his dad.

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor has confessed he's becoming more and more like his old man as he gets older, and is now interested in activities he thought were boring when he was a young lad.

Speaking about the inspiration behind his TV series 'Detectorists' - which follows two members of a metal detecting club - Mackenzie exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I've always had collections and my dad's always had collections.

"My dad was a coin collector and he tried to get me into it when I was a kid but I just thought it was the most boring thing ever and then a few years ago something happened, something in my brain switched and I suddenly realised and now I find myself turning into my dad and I'm collecting coins myself."

The 44-year-old star went on to admit that he doesn't mind becoming more like his dad but that he tries to keep his coin collecting a secret.

He added: "I quite like it actually. I've made my peace with it, but I still won't often tell people I'm a coin collector. Maybe it's just something private."
