Oh, one last thing. The Sunday Mirror “Radar” feature for Feb. 2004 has the following: “Actor Michael McElhatton, aka Rats from the flats, enjoying a coffee in Dublin shop Avoca with a stunning lady….”

Ah, that can mean so many things, and so exactly nothing :p Anyway, the other times he’s showed up in this feature he was: 1) hanging with friends somewhere, 2) “wolfing” down pizza, and 3) attending a Blur concert (<3).

ok 1 A BLUR CONCERT *screams and flails my arms*

and 2, “having coffee with a stunning lady” (hope for the sexual preference crowd-aka me)

McE article dump (5/6)


A longer article, good stuff:

"I’ll never play the prince," says McElhatton evenly and without regret. "Maybe his dad. But I can live with that. I don’t have burning ambitions. My ambition, such as it is, is not to get bored.

You never do, do you? I thought middle age didn’t happen these days until you’re 49. Reassessing my life? A little.”
