WHAT: Showtime’s June 21 premiere for Irish mob drama “Brotherhood”
WHERE: Westwood’s Crest Theater, followed by a bash at the Hammer Museum replete with Irish dancing and green beer.
SMOKIN’ IN THE BOYS’ ROOM: Skein’s Annabeth Gish needed some coaching while shooting a hotel-room scene. “I did have to go through several, how shall I say, pot smoking lessons,” she said. “I tended to smoke a joint like a cigarette.”
Fionnula Flanagan was glad her character wasn’t squeaky clean. “Noble is fine, but let me play low,” she said. “That gives substance to the whole thing. I think all of these characters have those qualities — dark and violent and full of blood and stolen cars and stolen money and stolen lovers.”
