On Episode 331 of The Harold & Maudecast hosts Sarah and Jake countdown to San Diego Comic Con 2018! A preview of all the confirmed panels and the now annual ConanCon, Conan O'Brien live at Spreckels Theater.
Also in this episode spotlight on actor Barry Keoghan, the 25 year old Irish actor who has caught the attention of Hollywood with his standout roles in THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER, DUNKIRK and AMERICAN ANIMALS.
Nominated for an Independent Spirit award for his role in Yorgos Lanthimos (THE LOBSTER) 2017 film, THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER and a standout performance in Christopher Nolan's Oscar winning film, DUNKIRK, Keoghan is one of the most exciting young actors on the scene today.
In 2018 Keoghan starred in Barry Layton's film, AMERICAN ANIMALS, about the real life story of four Kentucky college students who attempted to steal rare and valuable books from Kentucky’s Transylvania University. The outlandish heist attempt, predictably did not go well. The film, a Grand Jury prize nominee at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, received much praise including Keoghan's performance. AMERICAN ANIMALS, co-stars Evan Peters, Blake Jenner and Ann Dowd.
This September Keoghan will star in BLACK 47, alongside Hugo Weaving (LOTR, THE MATRIX) and fellow Irish actor Stephen Rhea (INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE). The film is set during the Great Irish Famine, about a young Irish ranger who has been fighting the British abroad, returns to his family in Ireland. The film is written and directed by Lance Daly (THE HALO EFFECT).
The busy Keoghan has yet another film and two television series in production. Look for big things from Barry Keoghan.
We review THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER, also starring Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman and AMERICAN ANIMALS.
