Irish Eye on Hollywood:
Dinner With Jamie
One of HBO’s more surreal, yet entertaining, recent projects was My Dinner with Hervé, about the life and times of 1970s diminutive Fantasy Island star Hervé Villechaize. The film featured Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage in the title role, as well as Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan (the Fifty Shades movies), as a journalist who gets sucked into Villechaize’s life.
Look for Dornan next–alongside Eve Hewson–in the November release Robin Hood. Dornan plays a member of Robin Hood’s band of Merry Men, as well as the husband of Maid Marian, who just happens to be portrayed by Hewson, who is the daughter of the singer of a certain Irish rock band you may have heard of. ♦
