He's been the unlikely star of Netflix's true crime documentary Making A Murderer, with a love of dad jeans that has even inspired a dedicated Tumblr page.
And this weekend Dean Strang will be arriving on Irish soil, for a just-confirmed appearance on The Ray D'Arcy Show this Saturday Jan 23.
The Wisconsin defence attorney will appear on the show to chat about Steven's case (we hope), and most likely his love of hurling – many Irish viewers got a kick out of spotting a GAA-themed statue in Strang's office:

"I’ve never been to a hurling game," Strang told The Irish Sun of the statue, given to him by an Irish-American friend.
"I’ve never been to Ireland, notwithstanding the 25 per cent of my genome rooted in your soil."
Never been to Ireland? Someone roll out the red carpet at Dublin Airport, this is going to be a VERY exciting weekend.
