Can Kevin Spacey play Seán Quinn? We examine the evidence

Spacey was tipped to play the former Quinn boss in a new film (he’s not tipped to play him anymore).

UPDATED 7 December

THE MAN BEHIND the film Ordinary Decent Criminal is set to bring the story of Seán Quinn to the big screen, but who will play the once richest man in Ireland?

It was originally reported that Kevin Spacey, who played Martin Cahill in Ordinary Decent Criminal, could be set to adopt an ‘Irish’ accent again for the role, but that has now been denied by his publicist.

Gerard McSorley (who was in Braveheart, and The Constant Gardner, and was Father Todd Unctuous in Father Ted)  is also in the frame apparently, but we’re wondering if Kevin Spacey could have been up to the job.

Let’s examine the evidence:
