Gleeson has just returned from filming the epic with the famous director...

"It was fantastic I haven't seen any footage yet but you just know when your on a film set that things are going to be great. I can't see a thing like the Gangs happening again. That amount of people and that amount of talent put together. I was very surprised to work with a cast that fantastic. It was brilliant but very painstaking. Very layered with so many things going on and every frame is a number of frames in one. He's fantastic to work with just like the rest of the cast. When you get to this stage of working with people like that there is no nonsense... There was no nonsense on the set, no jokes or tricks. It was all just professional and just getting the job done. Everyone really respected Scorsese so there was no question of there being anything else except work. It was a challenge for everybody. Nobody wanted to let the side down in any sense. It didn't feel I was in any stunning line up or anything like that. It felt like we were doing a job."

Talking about working with fellow Irish actor Pierce Brosnan in his current hit The Tailor of Panama, Gleeson said, "Well the plus to working with Pierce was working with John Boorman which I love and we get on well. It was a big jump for me in terms of the actual part itself. But, I got the brown contact lens's and it worked out great."

Next up for the big fella is a film with Hollywood star Kurt Russell. "The film is called Plague Season with Ron Shelton directing it and Kurt Russell is starring in it as the lead. It's basically set in the LA police around the time of the Rodney King trials and I play a cop in it."
