Paddy’s in the boot

In Dalkey, Ireland, a murdering pedophile is doing gods work. Even if he is a your family priest. For two small time Irish stick up men burdened with the task, being Catholic can be an occupational hazard. Using an old collectible Nazi Pistol can be a discussion unto its own. Paddy’s In The Boot by Kevin Shulman and with Eoin Macken and Kevin J Ryan screens twice in America.

In Pasadena on Feb 13th and in LA on Feb 14th. Get your tickets here and/or here.

Once Upon A Time In Dublin (3 crosses) – Trailer

UOATID2“The violent story of Jay and Jonnie Linski, two Polish-Irish brothers who try to come to terms with the brutal murder of their youngest sibling, Danny. The story follows the terrible hallucinatory visions that haunt bare-knuckle fighter Jonnie, as he battles with his own demons and a personal investigation into those responsible for the killing. As all his close relationships begin to crumble about him, he plunges head-long into a violent chain of events that will leave murder and mayhem following closely on his heels. Set in what could be any European City (and none specifically). Told through the emotional pain of the characters closest to the murdered Danny and the sometimes violent events that follow on from the actions of these same tortured few.” Written by Jonathan Figgis

‘Being Irish, I was apprehensive about playing a US army doctor’

by Deirdre Reynolds, Published 04/01/2015.

Eoin
“It’s weird,” jokes Eoin, who’s based in LA, “it seems totally fine to have a show on TV in England or America, but when it airs in Ireland, there’s a bit more trepidation about it. Suddenly your mates and your family are going to slag you a lot more! “When your show’s on American television, it’s like, ‘That’s awesome’; when it’s on RTÉ, people are like, ‘Now I can rip the piss out of you!'”

Having just been snapped up for a second season of the NBC show, filmed over 7,500 kilometres away in Albuquerque in New Mexico, the former Abercrombie and Fitch model is unlikely to mind too much. His turn as the talented-but-troubled doc has led to a role in Ridley Scott’s upcoming TV drama, Killing Jesus, alongside former Frasier star Kelsey Grammer.

“It’s like early ER meets MASH with a touch of Scrubs humour,” explains Eoin of the show that’s fast turning him into a household name. “It’s set in a Texas hospital and I play an ex-army medic who’s got Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. “Being Irish, I was kind of apprehensive about playing an American army doctor. Growing up, there’s nothing in our culture about being in the army; in America, that’s part of their culture. “But all the army vets have actually embraced the show and they really like it, which is important, so it’s been really interesting.”
