I did a [four-part Ir­ish] TV se­ries called Fa­ther & Son. I was play­ing this Manch­ester gang­ster [who re­turns to Ire­land af­ter seven years in a Bri­tish prison]. I’m not that, but I loved the jour­ney of dis­cov­ery through that process, the re­search in cre­at­ing that char­ac­ter. He was a mil­lion miles away from me. If the writ­ing’s there, it makes your job so much eas­ier. I did a movie with my wife [Claire For­lani], which was a dis­as­ter. It was called Love’s Kitchen. They lost all their money, so we had to shoot it in two weeks. It was a kick-bol­lock scram­ble and it looked like shit. I don’t think I was bad, I think the movie was bad. I’ve never been bad. You know I’m ly­ing, don’t you?
