EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I finally got something GOOD from Google Alerts! It’s been months! Or so!
He is in a new film called Jackdaw. Looks like another action/thriller flick. He does well in those. (Well, when they don’t kill off his character in the first ten minutes. Or make you wait til the last half-hour to see him. Oh SHUT UP Dana… This is good news!)
No idea who he’s playing. This is the first I’ve even heard of it. Jenna Coleman from Doctor Who (she played Clara in Eleven and Twelve’s time) is also in it, so that should be fun.
ADDITIONAL NOTE: If you google the name of this film you will bring up at least two other works with the same title, one of which was released last year and has a familiar face in it (not Rory’s). Neither of those is the one I’m talking about. If you go down either rabbit hole and don’t see the big man, don’t come yell at me on Instagram in my Hidden Requests folder, because (1) I warned you and (2) you’re the fucker didn’t pay attention to the release year. So pay attention. You’re welcome.
[edit edit, two days later]
Here’s a review! Rory plays… [drumroll] …a crime boss called Armstrong.
Sweet Baby Jesus please tell me the character’s first name is not Michael
…I’m not making fun of Rory. Promise. Actually, call it intuition, but I have a feeling this is going to be one more morally ambiguous Supposed To Be A Bad Guy but Rory will somehow make him Interesting. That’s not Rory’s pattern or anything, y’know. What can I say.
That, or he’ll be onscreen for like three minutes and send Our Hero in some kind of new direction. I dunno.
