Ian tackles Smyth role
The actor who played loyalist killer Michael Stone in a film about Mo Mowlam is to portray pervert priest Father Brendan Smyth in a controversial new TV drama.
Belfastman Ian Beattie, who starred alongside Angelina Jolie and Colin Farrell in an Oliver Stone movie about Alexander the Great six years ago, will start shooting the new drama next week.
The new film will tell the scandalous story of how evil child sex monster Smyth abused children during a 35-year reign of terror across Ireland.
