Adrien Brody’s role in ‘Peaky Blinders’ revealed.
Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight has revealed some details on Adrien Brody and Aidan Gillen’s roles in the fourth series.
Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight broke some surprising news a while back when he revealed that two new heavy hitters were climbing aboard for season 4 of the Birmingham-set show. Game Of Thrones’ Aiden Gillen and decidedly-more-American Pianist award-winner Adrien Brody were both announced as brand new cast members for the forthcoming run, but until now we didn’t know who they might be playing, or what their part in the Shelbys’ saga might be.
Adrien Brody is set to play Thomas Shelby’s “biggest threat” in the forthcoming new season of Peaky Blinders, creator Steven Knight has revealed: “Adrien plays the threat to the family and possibly the biggest they’ll face”.
But he was quick to play down the casting choices as a ratings-grabber. “We have been very fortunate to get two really legendary actors. We get a lot of actors who want to be part of [Peaky Blinders] which is great but we try not to make it a ‘spot the star’ sentiment, and just get actors who are really perfect for the role.”
Knight was then quizzed about whether Tommy (Cillian Murphy) would find it easy to make it up to the rest of the family after the season three’s explosive cliffhanger, but he wasn’t about to spoil any of that.
