CORK actor Cillian Murphy has revealed he is a huge fan of hit TV show The Young Offenders - and would love to land a role in the second series.
The BBC/RTÉ comedy has been one of the TV successes of the year and Murphy said: “I’ve met the actors, they are brilliant lads, brilliant actors. I love the show and I loved the film."
Asked at the premiere of his latest film in Dublin last night whether he would like to appear in an episode, his Cork accent got a little stronger as he laughed: “They’d have to give me a good part, like.”
Murphy also hinted that the Peaky Blinders TV series which is currently in production for a fifth season could end up on the big screen.
"It's so well written, it would be great to see it as a film and I wouldn’t rule out," said the actor who plays gangster Tommy Shelby.
Murphy was speaking at the premiere of The Delinquent Season at Cineworld in Dublin, a drama about two married couples with an all-Irish cast, which includes Andrew Scott.
"I don’t recall any Irish film like this, which deals with couples at a certain stage in their lives and the choices they make," said Murphy, 41, adding: “When you are older, have children, and find yourself moving elegantly into middle age, you want to make films that reflect your own experience.”
