Freeman agrees to film with Jude

Martin Freeman is to star in a film opposite Jude Law.

The Office star will appear in Anthony Minghella's film Breaking and Entering.

He will play a partner in a London architecture firm reports

Martin said: "The film is set in contemporary London and I play Jude Law's business partner. It's a straight role for me. I have played them before but I'm very much associated with comedy and that's something I'm trying to rectify. It's nice to have a balance between comedy and serious stuff."

The 33-year-old found fame as Tim in TV series The Office.

Breaking and Entering is due to be released next year.
