JOHN C REILLY, he of Stepbrothers, Walk Hard, Talladega Nights and Chicago fame is coming to Dublin.

According to Golden Plec he’s playing a gig at the Unitarian Church in Dublin on 9 February with some friends.

Reilly has already been nominated for a Grammy for his work on the Walk Hard soundtrack, Jack White has produced some of his songs and he’s been on tour with Willie Nelson and Band of Horses, so he’s okay at the old tunes.

Tickets for the gig are on sale now.

Here are some other actors who’ve turned their hands to music, or vice versa…
