Joe Quinn, the scene-stealing British star of Weird stuffrevealed some tantalizing tidbits about the highly anticipated season four finale.
Quinn’s character is Eddie Munson, who first appeared at the beginning of the most recent season of the Netflix hit, and has won the hearts of fans as the big-haired metalhead who runs the Hellfire Club and plays in a band called Corroded Coffin. Munson is, of course, also suspected of murder and charged with Satanic worship.
Without giving too much away, Quinn told the Guardian newspaper of the climax of the final two and a half hour episode: “I can say there is a guitar scene and the scale and ambition are astounding.”
We can infer what we want from his answer to the question of his return for the fifth and final season. He says, ‘I’ll be furious if they don’t bring me back. I’d love to, if they want me.”
To research his role for the mega-hit series, Quinn tried to play Dungeons and Dragons himself, but failed, listening to a lot of heavy metal music instead, including Black Sabbath, Metallica, and Dio. “But 99.7% of the work is that wig,” he admitted, referring to his signature hairpiece, which he calls “objectively ridiculous.”
In front of Weird stuffQuinn was best known for his appearance in a list of British period dramas such as Dickensian† Howard’s End and miserable† He also co-starred with Helen Mirren as her son in Catherine the Great†
He will next be seen in a British independent film called Darlingdirected by Luna Carmoon, and continues to be blown away by the success of Weird stuffwhich put Kate Bush at the top of the charts for the first time in more than four decades with her song “Running Up That Hill” after appearing in this season’s debut episode.
Quinn adds, “I’ve seen people walking down the street wearing Hellfire Club t-shirts, which was spooky.”
Weird stuffSeason 4 Part 2 will stream on Netflix from Friday, July 1.
