Can someone explain to me who Danny Dyer is?

I assume he's supposed to be 'hard'?

What distance does he run ?

I think you've pretty much got the measure of him already.

He can be found threatening film critic Mark Kermode as he doesnt appreciate his impression of him.

It always interesting when Actors like to try and live up to their hard-man credentials. Now I'm not pretending (acting) the hard man myself, but I dont dress up and pretend to be other people for a living (sadly).

No idea, never heard of him.

Pretty much. Danny Dyer is a chav, pretending to be an actor, pretending to be a hard man.

A few years ago I spotted the irony when one of the Dads of a Kid in my class was Grant Mitchells' minder....

If you're making an ultra low budget Brit Flick involving East End "gangsters" his agent will be knocking on your door.

I actually thought he was quite good in Human Traffic, but then that was before he went all 'serious'.

I really liked in that film where they had a team building trip into the Hungarian woods. Can't remember the title yet but I will.

He's also responsible for bringing those reality Gypsy show to us when he did a big thing on Paddy Dougherty on Britain's hardest men.

There you go. Severance. Very funny horror/comedy.

He also appeared in Football Factory. I've never really thought that he comes across as a hard man, or at least not in the way that Ray Winstone does.

He's a typical Mockney "Look at me I'm hard, but in reality couldn't fight my way out of a wet paper bag" type of guy.

Dyer strikes me as someone with a big gob which is probably backed up by some big mates.

Not unlike yesterday's pop trouble maker pete doherty - who definitely didnt have his minders expel someone from a party via the window.

Soccer AM ain't what it used to be, but one of their better modern features has been their Frankie Fryer's 'Away Days' parody of Danny Dyer.

Probably run its course now, but was very nicely observed initially.

The guy is a total prick. Tries to come across as a hardman, especially when doing the football away day hard man series or whatever it was. Talks hard but would run a mile if he really tried to mix it with the twats that he 'promotes' for violence. Bit like the equivalent of a keyboard warrior. Hate him with a passion ....

He's who you get if Jason Statham or Vinnie Jones are unavailable or too expensive.

Not going include Ray Winstone in that category because he's a much better actor than any of them (apart from Beowulf "I'm 'ere to kill yer mon-star").

Didn't Danny Dyer write an advice column for a lads mag and said to glass ex-girlfriends so that no-one else would want them? Lovely chap.

"'I'm Danny Dyer, and this is Football's most hardest away days"

He's unintentionally hilarious.

What about his UFO documentary appearance. Looking back at the clips its like they hired a bunch of actors, said stuff like "That speck of light in the corner of a shot is definitely a spaceship" and laugh at how gullible he is.

Also I think his real name is Malcolm.

agreed on severence and human traffic, both great films and he was good in both, but for the most part, shitty actor, and a pretty twatish person.
