Cillian Murphy is an Irish actor. He began his career performing as a rock musician.
He generally doesn't do a lot of interviews so that makes this extended chat with the great Cillian Murphy all the more special. Cillian visits Josh to chat about his beginnings, collaborations with Danny Boyle and Christopher Nolan, and why he keeps coming back for more "Peaky Blinders". 
Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy visits the Paste Studio this week to chat about the show's fifth season, out Oct. 4 on Netflix in the US. And Shawn Colvin stops by to play us a song. Plus host Josh Jackson and TV editor Allison Keene talk about the best new shows out this fall—and our take on Joaquin Phoenix's Joker.
If you haven’t been addicted to Peaky Blinders since it first aired in 2013, then you need to get yourself off to the BBC iPlayer at once and start catching up. All episodes are currently available for varying degrees of time, and we highly recommend you get involved before it's too late. Directed by Anthony Byrne, the latest season sees Cillian Murphy return as Tommy Shelby, head of the eponymous gang vying for underworld supremacy in inter-war Birmingham.  And we're delighted to say that both Anthony and Cillian are with us on Soundtracking to discuss the show’s extraordinary music - which dares to put contemporary alternative artists against the period backdrop. As such, some of the lyrics are quite fruity!  We should mention Edith spoke to them not only before Season 5 screened, but before Anthony had even finished editing it. We should also mention we had a few problems with Edith's mic during the recording, which we’ve dealt with as best we can. Thankfully, though, the lads sound fine, which is all that really matters.
Tonight John is joined by actor Cillian Murphy, who chooses music old and new, from Aldous Harding and Melanie Di Biasio, to The Beatles and The Band.
