IT Crowd star Richard Ayoade talks geek fame and Tinder

Richard Ayoade is an acclaimed actor and film director. In acting, he has found his niche playing awkward geeks, from The IT Crowd, to Gadget Man - an aptitude that has won him a Bafta.

His latest venture is a book, Ayoade on Ayoade: A Cinematic Odyssey, in which two fictional versions of himself meet for a series of interviews.

He talked to BBC's Technology reporter Dougal Shaw about the artificial nature of interviews, being typecast as a geek and middle-aged men's attraction to Tinder.
