Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY JAMES WARD

HOL­LY­WOOD star Adrien Brody is set to face off with Cil­lian Mur­phy’s char­ac­ter in the new sea­son of Peaky Blin­ders.

The Os­car win­ner, 44, has joined the cast of the hit drama for its fourth sea­son and is tipped to play Thomas Shelby’s “big­gest threat”.

Cre­ator Steven Knight has hinted Brody’s char­ac­ter will pose a prob­lem for Shelby and rel­a­tives.

He said: “Adrien plays the threat to the fam­ily and pos­si­bly the big­gest they’ll face.”

Ir­ish ac­tor and Game of Thrones star Ai­dan Gillen has also been lined up for a part in the new se­ries.

Knight said: “We have been very for­tu­nate to get two re­ally leg­endary ac­tors.”
