IT DOESN’T MATTER where you are in the world. Your Irish mates will always, always find a way to mortify you.
Domhnall Gleeson is on the promotional trail for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and appeared on James Corden’s Late Late Show on Wednesday night.
During his introduction, Gleeson pointed behind him into the green room and roared, to millions of American viewers:
That’s Laurence. That’s Laurence! His name is Laurence. He’s a great actor too! Say he’s one of the greatest actors in the world.
And who’s this Laurence? Only Elmo from Love/Hate himself, Laurence Kinlan.

Wow. Domhnall went in.
The pair are great mates (evidently) and Kinlan has been in the US with Gleeson attending the premieres of Star Wars and The Revenant.
A bit of a slagging must be a small price to pay for the Hollywood treatment, eh Elmo?
