Adrien Brody’s mafia man Luca Changretta swaggered into Peaky Blinders series four in style – but viewers reckoned he was channelling more than a bit of The Godfather.

That accent? Surely it must come straight from a Mafia movie marathon…
Director to Adrian Brody: "Yeah just do an impression of Marlon Brando in The Godfather, yep that's great, and just throw in an Italian hand for good measure" #PeakyBlinders

Is it just me or did Adrien Brody just watch Brando’s godfather scenes to get into character… #PeakyBlinders

As he faced off against Cillian Murphy’s Tommy Shelby and laid down the rules of the game, there was a bit of an act-off between the two men.
Brody exuded pure menace as he leered: “None of your family will survive. We are an organisation of a different dimension.”
Just when you thought it was impossible to steal a scene from Cillian Murphy, along comes Adrian Brody. (Peaky) Blinding stuff.

Just wait until Luca slips into full Godfather mode… that’s when things will get brutal.
