Former 'Fair City' star Derek O'Sullivan to star in Hollywood blockbuster

FORMER 'Fair City' actor Derek O'Sullivan has landed a part in a major Hollywood movie.

The Dublin native, who played Collie in the RTE soap a decade ago, will star in the movie adaptation of the life of notorious gang boss Whitey Bulger.

The actor will play Aidan, Bulder's nephew, in the €18m movie.

The movie will be titled 'Whitey 19' in reference to the 19 murders the mobster was linked to.

The 29-year-old actor said: "It's a big role for me and I can't wait to start. I look young for my age so I think I'm cast as a v=baby-faced gangster."
