CILLIAN Murphy looked worlds away from his iconic Peaky Blinders character as he shot scenes for the upcoming war film Oppenheimer.
The Irish actor, best known for his portrayal of Tommy Shelby in the British crime drama, was recently seen on set filming the new WWII film in Princeton, 新泽西州 – and he looked unrecognisable.
In the revealing shots, the Irishman – synonymous with the Brummy accent – looks entirely different to his intimidating, straight-talking Shelby character.
The Universal feature, which has started production in New Mexico, has added Kenneth Branagh to the call sheet, along with actor Michael Angarano.

Murphy will be headed by British-American film director Christopher Nolan who later found his loyalty to the United States questioned by hawkish government officials.
He has also appeared in Nolan’s Inception, The Dark Knight Rises and Dunkirk.
And it’s not the only film that Cillian will be featuring in the near future after the Peaky Blinders movie was officially confirmed earlier this year.
As there was a cancellation for the seventh season of the series, it will be swapped for the film, according to the show creator Steven Knight.
Production for the movie is set to begin in 2023, with a potential cinema release date in early 2024.
