It’s all happening for Domhnall Gleeson. The 32-year-old lad from Dublin, and son of the great actor Brendan Gleeson (with whom he appeared, most recently, in 2014’s black-humored Calvary), has, for years, seemed to be a man on the verge of a major breakthrough. Starring opposite Bill Nighy in the much beloved 2013 Richard Curtis time-travel movie About Time, though, didn’t quite do it. Nor did his charming lead in last year’s seriocomic indie about a disastrous band, Frank (an underrated film perhaps best known for Michael Fassbender wearing a giant papier-mâché mask throughout). But running a Turing test on Alicia Vikander’s robot for Alex Garland’s AI thriller Ex Machina has gotten him close. Now it’s really happening and nothing can stop it. Such is the power of Star Wars.
This December you’ll have to be in a galaxy far, far away to miss the roar of Star Wars: The Force Awakens when it hits theaters worldwide. (Details about J.J. Abrams’s reignition of the George Lucas interstellar saga, however, are about as scarce as water on Tatooine, so Gleeson’s part is anyone’s guess.) The month following, Gleeson does the Wild West with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s 19th-century frontier story of survival and vengeance, The Revenant. But first he will romance Saoirse Ronan in an adaptation of Colm Tóibín’s historical epic Brooklyn.
Domhnall did an interview with Indiewire last month to promote “Ex Machina“. We have added the photoshoot in our gallery, many thanks to my friend Luciana for donating it. You can find the in-depth interview below.

Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson (son of actor Brendan Gleeson) has been a dependable screen presence for over five years now by standing out in a number of projects that featured bigger box-office draws than himself.
In “Frank” he stole scenes from a masked Michael Fassbender; in “Anna Karenina” he was a comic revelation opposite Keira Knightley; and in “About Time,” he proved he could lead a romantic comedy opposite a vet of the genre, Rachel McAdams. 2015 could be the year that Gleeson finally becomes a household name thanks to his involvement in the most anticipated film of the year, J.J. Abrams entry into the “Star Wars” canon, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which opens this December.
