Sean Duggan ('Tom Coleman') and Brian Fortune ('Head Board Member) cast in "THE PROFESSOR and the MADMAN" which wrapped filming in Dublin and Wicklow before Christmas..

"The Professor and the Madman" is the extraordinary true tale of madness, genius, and the incredible obsessions of two remarkable men that led to the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary and literary history. The compilation of the OED began in 1857 and was one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken. As definitions were collected, the overseeing committee, led by Professor James Murray (Mel Gibson), discovered that one man, Dr. W. C. Minor (Sean Penn), had submitted more than ten thousand. When the committee insisted on honoring him, a shocking truth came to light: Dr. Minor, an American Civil War veteran, was also an inmate at an asylum for the criminally insane.

"The Professor and the Madman" is directed by Farhad Safinia.

Cast includes Mel Gibson, Sean Penn, Natalie Dormer, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Dillane, Jennifer Ehle, Ioan Gruffudd, Sean Duggan, David O’Hara, Jeremy Irvine, Michael Nyqvist, Ruaidhri Conroy and Brian Fortune.
