Domhnall Gleeson has appeared on the Nerdist podcast and charmed the pants off half of America in the process.

Nerdist has approximately 7 billion subscribers (give or take a few) and Gleeson chatted with Chris Hardwicke and co-host Matt Mira the morning after the US Force Awakens premiere.

Topics included his dad Brendan, how to pronounce his name, and two of his favourite Dublin bands Delorentos and Squarehead.

People were undone:

Jennifer Lawrence has admitted to lobbing the gob on Liam Hemsworth.
