Adrien Brody Signs On For Fourth Season Of Peaky Blinders

Academy Award-winning The Pianist star Adrien Brody is set to play a role on the fourth season of the BBC‘s period crime drama Peaky Blinders.

Since his critically-acclaimed turn as Polish pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman in the aforementioned Roman Polanski film, Brody has become one of the most recognized faces on the big screen. He has played major roles in such diverse fare as The Village, King Kong, The Darjeeling Limited, Splice, and The Grand Budapest Hotel. However, he has appeared on the small screen on occasion, most notably the History Channel‘s Houdini, where he played the legendary escape artist.

Little is known about the role Brody is supposed to play for the series, although creator Steven Knight claims that he was exactly who he had in mind when he first wrote the character. Thus, we’ll just have to wait and see what the next season of the show has in store for Brody, to say nothing of viewers.

Deadline, the source of this story, shares the following about the plot of the show’s last season:

Last season built on the Shelby family having ascended into high-society from its humble beginnings in Small Heath, and the personal issues that presented — along with being pulled into an international arms deal, encountering a group of White Russians with cursed jewels, political upheaval and a truly evil priest.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
