Domhnall is featured in the November 2013 issue of Details Magazine (with Chris Hemsworth on the cover). We added the scan and outtake of the photoshoot in our gallery. You can find the interview below/inside.
Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson lends his infectious everyman charm to About Time, a rom-com we can believe in.
Name: Domhnall Gleeson
Where You’ve Seen Him Before: The 30-year-old Dublin native scored a Tony nomination at just 23 for his role in The Lieutenant of Inishmore. Supporting parts in Hollywood films followed (he played the eldest Weasley in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 alongside his father, famed character actor Brendan Gleeson), including his buzzed-about turn as the painfully earnest Levin in 2012’s Anna Karenina.
The Irish Film & Television Network is reporting that Domhnall is being linked to the adaption of “Brooklyn” with Irish actress Saoirse Ronan set to star in.
Irish actress Saoirse Ronan is set to take on the leading role in upcoming ‘Brooklyn’, adapted from the 2009 Colm Tóibín novel of the same name.
Director John Crowley has confirmed that Ms. Ronan will replace the originally-cast Rooney Mara (‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’) as Eilis Lacey, a young Irish immigrant in 1950’s New York whose blossoming relationship with an Italian plumber is threatened when tragedy calls her home once more.
The ‘Intermission’ and ‘Boy A’ director dubbed the novel “exquisite”, and expressed high praise for the Nick Horny-adapted screenplay, hoping to tell a “story we’ve never seen on film, certainly not from Ireland yet”.
‘About Time’ star Domhnall Gleeson has also been linked to the project, which is to be produced by Finola Dwyer of Wildgaze Films.
THR is reporting that Universal confirmed the production of Angelina Jolie’s “Unbroken” and Domhnall is also officially confirmed as part of the cast.
Angelina Jolie will direct Unbroken in the Australian states of NSW and Queensland, it was confirmed Tuesday, with the shoot based at Sydney’s Fox Studios Australia and Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast and is set to start filming Oct. 21.
Jolie visited both states in early September, finalizing locations for the World War II-set biopic of U.S. Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini. It will shoot in Sydney, regional locations in NSW and Village Roadshow Studios and its water tank on the Gold Coast, while it’s also expected that some of the visual effects work will be done by NSW companies.

Emma Freud, script editor and partner of Richard Curtis, revealed earlier this week on her official twitter account that the cast of “About Time” were recording the DVD commentary of the movie. We assume (and hpe) Domhnall was also there for the recording.
Big day recording the commentary for the DVD of #AboutTime. With the cast. On our sofa.
