^ The Snapper is a little-known but regionally very popular movie from 1993 or so, where Meaney plays Dessie Curley, a working-class Dubliner. Awesome performance, completely unbridled. Very funny movie.

Colm Meaney offered to shapeshift, to save the studio CGI expenses in Odo stories.

Re: Facts About Colm Meaney!

When Colm Meaney dies into a pool, he doesn't get wet, the water becomes "Meaney-a-rized."

Re: Facts About Colm Meaney!

Colm Meaney allows the Beatles to exist even after they used the phrase "Blue Meanies" in Yellow Submarine. Although he could retroactively wipe them from existence in all past, present and future dimensions, just by using his jaw muscles.

Until Colm Meany dropped out, it was referred to as the Seattle Eight.

I don't know about the rest of you, but he's too young for that in my case.

You mean his current body is. The Colm Meaney entity changes bodies every century or so. You know, for something to do.

Re: Facts About Colm Meaney!

It was Colm Meaney who convinced the filmmakers to change his character for all three of the Barrytown Trilogy movies (in the novels, it's the same character). This was done because for Colm to play the same character in three films would overload the screen due to maximum awesomeness.

Colm Meaney understands Twin Peaks, Lost, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I've seen Colm Meaney beat the snot out of James Bond. (Well, Daniel Craig, anyway.)

Re: Facts About Colm Meaney!

Colm Meaney was the first to shout "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!" This caused Ricardo Montalban's image to become Benedict Cumberbatch.
