Jeremy Irons is no stranger to awards season. Over his near five decades in the business, the actor has earned three Emmys, two Golden Globes and an Oscar for Best Actor (“Reversal of Fortune”), and producer Edward R. Pressman is putting him back in the race for gold this year with his supporting turn in “The Man Who Knew Infinity.” The indie drama was released earlier this spring, and just last month The Edward R. Pressman Film Corporation confirmed the launch of an awards campaign for Irons, who plays mathematics professor G.H. Hardy and mentor to genius Srinivasa Ramanujan (played by Dev Patel).
Irons’ Oscar campaign comes at one of the busiest moments in his career. This December, he’ll join Michael Fassbender and “Macbeth” director Justin Kurzel in the video game adaptation “Assassin’s Creed,” and he’s already wrapped shooting his second turn as Alfred Pennyworth in Warner Brothers’ DC movie universe. “Justice League” opens November 17, 2017, and he’ll begin production on the Ben Affleck-directed “The Batman” sometime next year. Other films in the pipeline include “An Actor Prepares” and “Monumental.”
