The press release showed a first look of the show, including a picture of Gleeson. In the series, he will be playing a character named Wentworth. While there are no details on his character yet, the press picture of Gleeson is giving us next iconic bad guy. Seriously, just look at his villian-esque mustache which renders him practically unrecognizable.
After Game of Thrones, the star stepped away from acting. It wasn’t until 2020 when he began taking small roles in a BBC miniseries called Out of Her Mind and theatre projects like Bears in Space. This will be his first big role since the HBO show ended in 2014.
