He’s joining a cast that includes Colin Farrell, Cillian Murphy, Gabriel Byrne and Gleeson, as well as Gleeson’s son, Domhnall. Filming is targeted for a spring 2012 start.

The film is an adaptation of Irish author Flann O’Brien’s seminal metaphysical novel, a coming-of-age tale about a 19-year-old student who sees the fictional characters in the play he’s writing intertwining with the people in his life.
