'Love/Hate's Jason Barry Cast in FIFA Film ‘F2014’ for World Cup Release
21 Aug 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
'Love/Hate' actor Jason Barry and Jemima West star in FIFA film 'F2014'.
Irish actor Jason Barry - best known for playing Dano in ‘Love/Hate’ season three and Tommy in James Cameron’s ‘Titanic’ - has joined the cast of Frédéric Auburtin’s ‘F2014’ about the history of FIFA, starring Tim Roth as FIFA President Sepp Blater.

Mr Barry will Edgar Willcox, a journalist trying to uncover the truth behind the politics of FIFA during the Blatter era – with other cast members including Jemima West (‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’) and Gerard Depardieu (‘Life of Pi’).

The film will be directed by French filmmaker Frédéric Auburtin, based on a screenplay he co-wrote with Jean-Paul Delfino, spanning 100 years of the organisation from its inception to the present day.

Tim Roth has starred in such films as Tarantino’s ‘Reservoir Dogs’ and ‘Pulp Fiction’; ‘The Incredible Hulk’; and Tim Burton’s ‘Planet of the Apes’.

Gerard Depardieu will play Jules Rimet, third president of FIFA from 1921 to 1954; with his daughter played by Jemima West - recently seen as Vittoria in Neil Jordan’s ‘The Borgias’.

Jason Barry’s other notable screen roles include ‘Valkyrie’, ‘Circle of Friends’ and ‘The Last of The High Kings’.

‘F2014’ is produced by Paris-based Leuviah Films and has a planned release date to tie in with the World Cup finals in Brazil in 2014.
