According to the Mirror

Matthew Macfadyen's hopes of appearing in Ashes To Ashes again have turned to dust. The hubby of Keeley Hawes, who plays Alex Drake, guested as oddball charity worker Gill Holis in the first series. He said: "I pleaded for another part. But once you're in it, you can't do it again."

IMDb poster comments on Macfadyen's performance in Frost/Nixon

IMDb poster, steveg 1023 had this to say about Matthew Macfadyen's role in Frost/Nixon.

...I also was lucky enough to see a screening and take part in a group Q&A with Ron Howard.

MacFadyen's solid, but he really is a supporting role in a movie that really belongs to Sheen and Langella. HIs character is very Darcy-ish in the sense that you know there's a lot of emotion brimming under the surface, and it only comes out in controlled outbursts. He serves as a nice foil to Sheen's emphasis on charisma and a playboy attitude.

He gets one of the best moments of the movie, though. It's quick, but I don't want to spoil it.
