IT is a dream role for any young Scots actor.
EWAN McGregor has rubbished plans for a sequel to the hit film that made his name. The actor has reiterated his objection to starring in Porno, the long-awaited sequel to Trainspotting, widely seen as the best British film of its generation. He said that reading Porno, by Irvine Welsh, had failed to move him, unlike the original, as "ultimately there was nothing new in it".
