BOOKIES have made Ewen Bremner the favourite in a three-way Trainspotting tussle for Scottish BAFTA glory.

The T2 sequel of the iconic movie is up for several gongs at this week’s ceremony.

But the Best Film Actor award is a straight fight between three of its biggest stars.

Bremner is 6/4 with McBookie to land the prize after receiving rave reviews for his portrayal of hapless junkie Daniel “Spud” Murphy.

But Robert Carlyle – who reprises the role of psycho Begbie – and Ewan McGregor – as reformed character Renton – are the other nominees with both 5/2 to pip their co-star.

McBookie spokesman Paul Petrie said: “It’s a remarkable feat for one movie to throw up all three nominees for Best Actor.

“But that’s a measure of the enduring grip that Trainspotting has on the nation’s imagination.

“Ewen Bremner is, in many ways, the least celebrated actor in this trio.

“But his performance was widely praised as a masterpiece, capturing both the misery and humour in his character, Spud.”

The original Trainspotting movie – about the lives of those caught up in Edinburgh’s drugs underworld – won Best Film in the 1997 Scottish BAFTAs with McGregor taking Best Film Actor ahead of Carlyle.

Original director Danny Boyle returned to direct the sequel, along with Johnny Lee Millar, who played Sick Boy and the film features a cameo from Kelly Macdonald, who played Renton’s girlfriend Diane.

The film is set in the present day, 20 years after the original.

Now T2 is dominating the shortlists and the sequel – which hit cinemas last January – is nominated in two other categories.

BBC television series The Replacement is up for three awards too, including Morven Christie for Best Television Actress.

The winners will be revealed at the Scottish BAFTAs ceremony in Glasgow on Sunday.
