In which he plays identical twins who almost have sex

In 1990, Irons played accused murderer Claus von Bulow in Reversal of Fortune, and took home multiple awards including an Academy Award for Best Actor.

Here comes the clip!

Here he is talking about Claus. Clearly Barbet was typecasting when he picked Irons to play the sinister lounge lizard.

Does Sinead have Reno on the Beano ? (as J.J. Hunsecker would put it)

Irons’ wife and children are Catholic; of himself, he has stated, “I don’t go to church much because I don’t like belonging to a club, and I don’t go to confession or anything like that, I don’t believe in it. But I try to be aware of where I fail and I occasionally go to services. I would hate to be a person who didn’t have a spiritual side because there’s nothing to nourish you in life apart from retail therapy

Apparently THIS

Mission

was “service.”

Take it away Marilyn!
