The Guardians of the Galaxy actor made a guest appearance at the Galway Film Fleadh in early July and has been holidaying on our shores with his family since - so he knows how things work, especially in famous Clare pub Gus O’Connors.

Having starred as Amos Hart in the smash-hit movie Chicago in 2002, we all know he’s well able to hold a tune.

And just to put the icing on the cake, he treated the crowd to a renidition of 'Wild Rover'.
