IRISH movie hunk Jonathan Rhys Meyers is the headline guest for the return of the Late Late Show this Friday.
In what’s being hailed as a considerable coup for the show’s producers, Rhys Meyers will feature in a lengthy interview, which RTE hope will pull in massive audience numbers for the show’s return from the summer break.
The first show will be broadcast live from the stunning new state-of-the-art Opera House Opera House in Wexford in a special one-off before returning to its usual home in Montrose.
That’s why the show’s chiefs were especially keen to pull in an A-list name to kickstart the inaugural programme of the autumn in style.
“Rhys Meyers really is one of the biggest stars that Ireland has ever produced and everyone’s fascinated by him,” said a source.
“Women absolutely love him and guys respect him because he’s also a very talented actor, so there’s no doubt he’s a popular choice when it comes to interviewees.”
The Cork native starred in massive hits like Match Point and Bend it Like Beckham before returning to Dublin to film the popular â‚¬25m series, The Tudors.
Production on the third series is currently underway in Ireland, with America’s Showtime bosses expected to green-light a fourth series.
