Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet reports that Larry has a role in Norwegian director Erik Poppe's new movie "A Thousand Times Good Night", which is filming in Dublin at the moment."I always want to mix in a little surprise. This time it's Larry Mullen Jr. from the band U2. Since I'm filming in Dublin, I just had to ask him, to add something fresh and raw to the movie"
, Poppe says in a press release."This is absolutely ouside of Mullen's comfort zone, he tells me, but I love seeing how he gets more confident each day and that it's working. He's brave to do this.""Ireland and Dublin is James Joyce, Beckett and U2. Joyce and Beckett are dead, while U2 are still alive. So it was impossible not to ask him. He's the band member with the coolest looks, the biggest credibility, and who most resembles my screenwriter Harald Rosenløw Eeg"
, Poppe chuckles.
Mullen is currently dividing his time between what he calls his day job, which is the set of "A Thousand Times Good Night", and his night job, which is the recording of the new U2 album on the south side of town, according to the press release.
Mullen plays the role of "Tom", who is the husband of Maria Doyle Kennedy's character "Theresa". They are friends of the main characters, played by Juliette Binoche and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
