"Go to New York, make a splash and show these fuckers back here"

This week's Episode of FNI Wrap Chat is someone who may be very recognisable to the Irish TV audience, from his brilliant turn in Love/Hate as Git Loughran, to his performances in the recent Taken Down and Dead Still. The brilliant writer/actor/director, Jimmy Smallhorne joins the two Paul's @paulbutlerlennox @paulwebsterfilms in the studio. 

Jimmy is an Irish filmmaker and actor who wrote, directed and acted in his debut feature film "2by4". The Sundance Selected 1998 notorious Feature.  
Jimmy recounts in brilliant detail his experiences finding finance and how Harvey Keitel was instrumental in helping it get made. 
2by4 is a drama about a closeted gay construction worker in New York City and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival and received the Festival's Cinematography award for the camera work of Declan Quinn (Leaving Las Vegas, Vanya on 42nd Street, Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love).

Jimmy grew up in the Ballyfermot suburb of Dublin, Ireland. He emigrated to the United States in 1994, finding work as a construction laborer. While working in construction, Smallhorne helped organize the Irish Bronx Theater.
In 2020 he appeared in the crime drama series Dead Still. He lives in Carlow with his partner.
