Movies Actors, The (2003, Dylan Moran, Michael Caine) Published 4 months ago on October 23, 2018 Tom (Dylan Moran) is a struggling actor playing a Nazi stormtrooper in a modern production of Richard III in Dublin. Anthony O’Malley (Michael Caine) is an ageing thespian in the title role, bitter that he’s never received the acclaim (or riches) he feels his talent deserves. But he has a plan to get rich: local gangster Barreller (Michael Gambon) owes money to an even bigger crime boss and if Tom and O’Malley can put on the performance of their lives, they can persuade him to give them the dough. All goes well until Tom falls for Barreller’s daughter Dolores (Lena Headey) and their plan is discovered; now only their acting ability can save their lives… Although the film is Conor McPherson’s screen debut as a director, his work in the theatre as a writer for such plays as The Weir and The Good Thief have seen him win countless awards, and directing a film about a play and its two principles comes as second nature. Dylan Moran, best known for Black Books, takes his feature film debut in his stride, while Michael Caine, as the raddled, bitter thespian, is both funny and touching in turn. production details UK | 91 minutes | 2003 Director: Conor McPherson Script: Conor McPherson, Neil Jordan, cast Michael Caine as Anthony O’Malley Ben Miller as Clive Dylan Moran as Tom Quirk Michael Gambon as Barreller Lena Headey as Dolores Miranda Richardson as Mrs. Magnani Michael McElhatton as Jock Aisling O’Sullivan as Rita Abigail Iversen as Mary Michael Colgan as Audition Director Deirdre Walsh as Camcorder Girl Abigail IversenAisling O'SullivanBen MillerComedyConor McPhersonDeirdre WalshDylan MoranLena HeadeyMichael CaineMichael ColganMichael GambonMichael McElhattonMiranda RichardsonNeil Jordan Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes21 hours ago Miracle Workers: 12 Days (TBS Tues 26 Feb 2019) 12 Days: A troublesome human complicates Craig and Eliza’s plan, while Sanjay attempts to burnish his credentials.
