Interview: John Michael McDonagh Takes Chances With ‘The Guard’

Chicago – From a classic tradition of abrasive-but-lovable anti-heroes, the lead of writer/director John Michael McDonagh’s “The Guard,” Officer Boyle (Brendan Gleeson), is one of the most memorable leads of the year. Played with trademark wit by Gleeson, Boyle does drugs, sleeps with hookers, and simply doesn’t care what you think about him.

This past Friday night Jimmy Fallon bought me a beer and gave me a few minutes of his time, which is very precious these days as he has literally become the man of the hour, taking over desk duty for Conan O’Brien. The scene at the Whiskey River bar, where Jimmy dropped in to talk to us press folk, was a madhouse, which isn’t that unusual for an NYC bar on a Friday night. Of course, any time you take a celeb and a bunch of drunk dudes with cellphone cameras and throw ‘em into a space about the size of my first studio apartment, it’s gonna get a little hectic.
