Jimmy's Hall : Bishop Brennan in Jimmy's Hall

Bishop Brennan in Jimmy's Hall

Shame they used the same actor, very distracting, kept expecting Father Ted to kick him up the arse.

Re: Bishop Brennan in Jimmy's Hall

That's the first thing I thought when I saw Jim Norton. "Don't call me Len, you little prick! I'm a bishop!"

Re: Bishop Brennan in Jimmy's Hall

Norton's performance was the finest acting in the film. So you were sitting there thinking about Father Ted? If so, that may be because Jimmy's Hall is not very good cinema. I feel sorry for that poor horse which appeared in nearly every scene. The actor playing Jimmy Grafton was unbearably blandhandsome, no doubt, but totally unconvincing as a charismatic organiser.

Re: Bishop Brennan in Jimmy's Hall

please, tell more about the horse. animal cruelty?

Re: Bishop Brennan in Jimmy's Hall

no, there is no animal cruelty. People have horse-drawn carts because they are too poor to own cars.

Re: Bishop Brennan in Jimmy's Hall

I suppose you also expected Andrew Scott to reveal he wasn't actually a priest but Moriarty in disguise, and use his evil genius against the Catholic Church. Feckin' eejit.

He could have been outside the hall with Fr Seamus holding signs saying Careful Now and Done With this Sort of Thing!
