In Mr ACCIDENT Grant Piro plays Lyndon, a responsible, highly capable egg company accountant who is not only Roger’s flatmate but his only friend. Although at times Lyndon is infuriated with accident-prone Roger and intimidated by his schizophrenic boss Chevalier, he generously and confidently counsels them both about the opposite sex.

Comments Grant: "Where Yahoo’s character Roger is a disaster zone, Lyndon seems perfect in every way. As the film progresses though, we begin to see his true nature. He’s an accountant and basically he’ll do whatever it takes to stay in favour and to get ahead. But he really does care about Roger and does what he can to keep Roger safely out of trouble." He continues: "Comedy is my genre so I was exceptionally happy to be offered a role in a Yahoo Serious film. Mr ACCIDENT is a genuine tribute to the comedy greats going all the way back to Buster Keaton so I had an absolute ball making it. Yahoo is very inspirational to work with — certainly not a traditional film maker! The collaboration was exciting. We’d be filming a scene and someone would suddenly sniff potential stupidity in something, so we’d all go to work on this new joke, which is a very refreshing and exciting way to develop material."
