Love/Hate's Tommy and Fran play Dublin hipsters in this new Irish film

A far cry from Love/Hate.

THE LAST TIME we saw Peter Coonan and Killian Scott together, they looked a little something like this.

But the two Love/Hate actors are set to leave their hard lad images behind as they star in the forthcoming Irish slacker comedy Get Up and Go.

Peter Coonan plays Alex, a struggling musician.

They hang out in places like notorious hipster joint The Fumbally.

As you can see, Fran loves his little scarf.

There it is again!

Alex’s life is flipped upside down when he finds out his girlfriend is pregnant, but remains determined not to let that minor snag derail his plans of going to Dublin.

What ensues is a madcap comedy that takes place over 24 hours and features many of Dublin’s best-loved club, pubs and sights. There is also cameos from many stalwarts of the capital’s music scene.

Sure, there’s Mick Pyro!

A far cry from Love/Hate, so.

(Seriously, Fran wouldn’t be caught dead wearing that scarf.)

Get Up and Go is released in Irish cinemas on May 1st.
