Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 13.45.02Having taken on a starring role in John Michael McDonagh’s debut feature The Guard, Irish actor Brendan Gleeson returns in the filmmaker’s sophomore endeavour, playing Father James Lavelle in Calvary.

We were fortunate enough to discuss the role with the man himself, and how he went about combining the affable, endearing qualities to the character, with the more brutal. He also speaks about the film’s somewhat shocking opening line, and why he would like to complete the unofficial ‘Glorified Suicides’ trilogy of films with the man in the director’s chair.

Calvary is released on April 11th, and you can read our review here.
