He may be a familiar face on Irish TV screens, but it turns out no-one has a clue who poor Laurence Kinlan is in the States.
And Domhnall Gleeson decided to remind him of this little fact earlier this week… in front of an audience of millions.
While backstage getting ready for his appearance on the Late Show with James Corden, Domhnall decided to play a good old fashioned practical joke on his Love/Hate pal.
On live television, Domhnall asks James to acknowledge his mate Laurence who he says is "also a great actor."
And in true James Corden fashion, the presenter rolls with it introducing poor Laurence as a "three time Academy Award nominee."
Laurence was quick to share the hilarious clip on social media.

Now that is some true Irish banter.
