MVP of the Month: Brendan Gleeson

posted by Nell Minow

This month’s Most Valuable Player has to be the brilliant Irish actor Brendan Gleeson, a mountain of a man with great physical power but great subtlety as an actor. He has two very different roles in this week’s sci-fi action film “Edge of Tomorrow,” opposite Tom Cruise, and a charming little film set in a Canadian harbor village, “The Grand Seduction.” Gleeson was a teacher until age 34, when he began acting, with memorable appearances in “Braveheart,” “In Bruges,” and as Professor Alastor “Mad­Eye” Moody in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”
