1. He has starred as an organised-crime-loving youth in The Business and an organised-violence-loving football hooligan in the Football Factory. He has presented TV shows called things like Football Hooligans International and The Real Football Factories, that probably either had some violence or some violence-loving people talking about violence in. Oh, and Danny Dyer’s Deadliest Men, which definitely featured violence on some level. He also did the voice for a crime-loving Brit called Kent Paul in some of the violence-loving Grand Theft Auto computer games. There was also I Believe In UFOs: Danny Dyer, where he visited ‘UFO hotspots’, presumably with the intention of finding a little grey fella with a big head and long fingers to “fill in”. Presumably.

“You’ve got nothing to worry about, son. I’d suggest going on a rampage with the boys, getting on the booze and smashing anything that moves. Then, when some bird falls for you, you can turn the tables and break her heart. Of course, the other option is to cut your ex’s face, and then no one will want her…”
Dyer later said, “I do not condone violence against women.”
3. He’s got a new film out on DVD. Here’s the poster:
As I said, three completely unrelated facts.
