Cillian Murphy will be taking on a whole new role, as he’s set to take over on BBC Radio 6 Music.

The hugely popular Irish actor, who has starred in movies such as Dunkirk and Inception, will step behind the mic to cover for Elbow’s Guy Garvey on the Sunday show for a series of episodes.

“As a music lover, mixtape obsessive and long-time 6 Music fan I couldn’t be more chuffed to be asked to sit in for Guy on his hiatus,” the Peaky Blinders actor revealed.

“His show has been a constant companion for me and my family on Sunday afternoons for many years now, and it will be an honour to pick the tunes in that slot for a while.”
