NEW TV ROLE FOR DAMIEN MOLONY IN HBO’S ‘THE DEVIL YOU KNOW’

 

Father and Son: Eddie Izzard and Damien Molony in new TV drama

TDYK2
Exciting news, Damien has landed a new TV role in HBO drama Pilot 'The Devil You Know'.

He will be appearing alongside a stellar cast headed up by Eddie Izzard, Nadia Alexander and Ismenia Mendes and including Ever Carradine, Julian Rhind Tutt, Matthew James Thomas, Nigel Lindsay, Ewen Bremner, Karen Gillan, Hannah Nordberg, Naian Gonzalez Norvind and Zawe Ashton.

According to Deadline.com the new TV show is a ‘provocative period drama’ exploring a compelling period of American history and set in 17th Century New England.

The story explores the historical and religious context and effects of the Salem Witch Trials on Salem village, focussing on the Putnam family, with Izzard playing the conservative Father Thomas and Damien playing his eldest son, Robert Putnam.

The drama is currently filming in Boston USA, perfect timing for our favourite actor who is on a hiatus during a four-month run of The Hard Problem at the National Theatre.

Damien is no stranger to period drama and portraying characters from another time, having previously played over 500-year-old vampire Hal Yorke in Being Human and Irish Detective Constable Albert Flight in 19th century London in Ripper Street.

Congratulations to Damien on his new role, we’re thrilled and cannot wait to see him resplendent in 17th century costume, with American accent, in what sounds like a compelling drama!

Watch this space for more news as it happens.

 

The Devil You Know is created and co-written by Jenji Kohan, Bruce Miller and Tracy Miller, directed by Gus Van Sant and co-produced by HBO and Lionsgate TV.

Very exciting announcement and to think Damien is filming as we speak!

Here is a little more detailed info on the drama, from Paste Magazine:

"The show, tentatively titled The Devil You Know, will be a period drama exploring the circumstances of the Salem Witch Trials in 17th century New England. This dark period in America’s history pitted townsfolk against one another and sent the town into a religious frenzy. In total, 19 people were hanged, an elderly man was crushed with stones and several people died in jail after being accused of witchcraft. Nearly 200 people were accused overall.

Izzard plays Puritan farmer Thomas Putnam, the deeply conservative patriarch of the Putnam family. He is an important figure in Salem Village, but his time at the top may be short lived if he isn’t careful. Challenges come from all sides and he must be prepared to fight.

Izzard will star alongside Nadia Alexander, who will portray his bright young daughter, Ann Putnam Jr. Ismenia Mendes, fresh out of Juilliard, will portray Mercy Lewis, a captive servant girl who must rely on inner strength to survive.

The series is being co-written by Kohan, Bruce Miller and Tracy Miller and directed by Gus Van Sant. Production on the pilot is set to begin in Boston sometime this spring."

 Probably, it was thick paper pile, this explains  why he has been so busy! And I'm so very excited about this! There seems to be no end of his new projects which is good news!

It's just now sinking in. Holy crap! And it's a subject mater that I'm actually interested in.  U.S. history, possibly a bigger U.S. fan base. Oh gosh! Squeeee!!!!

.....Damien filming in the U.S. (my continent, a mere 830 miles from me) smile

Co-written by Jenji Kohan, directed by Gus Van Sant, and starring Eddie Izzard as his dad, this isn't going to be your typical Salem Witch Trials... I'm so excited. *crossing fingers*

I haven't posted in a while, but I just need to fangirl for a second that he's in BOSTON! That's my second home! I go up at least once a month, but during baseball season I'm regularly up there biweekly for games. How exciting! I'll have to keep an eye out for him. ;)

Nice to see a Damien project not all hush hush for a change!  (I'm sure the 2015 Season Premiere is premature, but wouldn't it just be a jam packed Year of the Damo if it were true!)

I wonder if this is as a result of the popularity of the series Salem which is on US television.

Whatever the reason, I am so glad that Damien has a leading role - no more than he deserves.

I had a look on IMDb Whimsy but couldn't find anything!  Did you find it on IMDbPro?

 

Just worked out how to look at the page - I searched for Eddie Izzard and got it that way.

I'm so glad for him! HBO, big thing and filming in U.S! And the cast, oh the cast! I was suppose to praise these news more yesterday but I was so tired and struggling to type message with my phone.

I agree Whimsy, it's nice that not all his projects are super secret. Year of Damo indeedaww And yes Pearl, leading role is what he really deserves. It's like Aidan Turner, nobody knows him really until he made appearance in Hobbit. He became world wide success and his latest interview in BBC radio the man told him to tell about himself cause people are wondering where did you come from, and he starts to talk about BH (where it all begun...). I just keep wondering, will the same thing happen to Damien? One day he will be interviewed about his past projects when people are wondering where did you come from, and he can start telling about BH and his first leading role as Hal...

17th century, this means more dashing costumes! Loved his appearance in Ripper Street already, even it is little bit from different era but I can't wait to see the results! 

It's so nice to hear about you knightley! Oh look out for him, maybe little journey to Boston perhaps? With camera? wink

Great to see you Knightley and how exciting, maybe you will get to see some filming, good luck!

Lovely to see the IMDb page up already, thanks for posting whimsy!

 

Here is the link The Devil You Know | IMDb page and it is always a thrill to see Damien's own IMDb page growing too! Damien Molony | IMDb

 Already linked to the Deadline article Pearl, that's how the news broke! GOod thinking about the interest in Salem. It certainly provides a compelling context for a story.

 

Haha Jozie, I was thinking yesterday that Year Of The DaMo couldn't become more Molony-esque... but it just did! When we first mentioned YOTD in the New Year though. we did say at that time we only knew about the projects already announced (Suspects Series 3, The Hard Problem) / already filmed (Clean Break, Kill Your Friends, Tiger Raid) and there was plenty of room for more!

I love Suspects but it will be nice to have new Damo gifs from shots without camera shaking or peeking through windows to add to the archive. smile
