Damien Molony to appear in ‘Kill Your Friends’ film



Upcoming Britpop movie Kill Your Friends is currently filming in the uk and already has a stellar cast attached, including Nicholas Hoult, Tom Riley, James Corden, Georgia King, Edward Hogg, Craig Roberts and Joseph Mawle, but we are excited to report our favourite actor is also likely appearing.

There has been no official announcement of Damien’s casting, but the clues in the tweets below are pointing firmly in that direction.

The first from Georgia King:


Secondly from Damien himself this morning, on the day Kill Your Friends is being filmed at The Electric Ballroom, Camden London:


Directed by Owen Harris (Misfits, Black Mirror), Kill Your Friends is based on the 2008 novel by John Niven, who has also written the screenplay for the film. Set in 1997 London, the book – described as “wonderfully nasty” on its front cover – is an unadulterated, no-holds-barred fictional exposé dark satirical comedy based on the music industry at the height of the Britpop era, centred around an offensive, psychopathic A&R agent Stephen Stelfox (to be played by Nicholas Hoult) and his crew.

It is not known who he will be playing yet, but latest photos of Damien, at the EFG Short Story Awards last week, reveal the character will be sporting impressive Britpop-worthy sideburns.

Whatever the part, we are thrilled for Damien being cast in his first feature-length film, which looks set to be an iconic, on-trend British movie smash, and cannot wait to see his debut on the silver screen!
