According to the 30-year-old MLB player, the extra attention doesn’t impact him much as the doppelgänger thing is mostly popular among avid internet users while he prefers to stay away from social media. But Glasnow added that his mother also agrees with his facial resemblance to the blue-eyed Irish actor- “Then my mom was like, ‘You kind of do look like him!'”

When asked if he was a fan of the works of Cillian Murphy, he was quick to respond yes. Glasnow revealed that he is a big fan of Murphy’s works and Peaky Blinders is his absolute favorite.

“Absolutely! I think he’s f–king awesome. Peaky Blinders is really good. I think he’s such a good actor, so I’m like, ‘That’s cool, yeah!’ He looks great.”

Following this, he was also asked if he liked Murphy’s collaborations with Christopher Nolan. Tyler Glasnow reflected his excitement on the question and it was evident that the ex-Pittsburgh Pirates player is also a fan of Nolan’s movies.

Yeah, of course. If you say you’re not a Christopher Nolan fan, you’re crazy. You know what I mean? He’s awesome. All his Batman movies are pretty sick. Is he Interstellar and Inception too? [GQ: Yes.] Holy sh-t. Interstellar is really good. Wow! I didn’t know that he did Interstellar. Maybe I don’t know that much. That movie is insane.”

It is quite clear that Tyler Glasnow is a huge fan of the movies of the person he is associated with. It was also reflected in his reaction after watching Oppenheimer.

Everyone loved the amazing performance by Murphy as the Father of the Atomic Bomb accompanied by the brilliant filmmaking skills of Nolan.

Gasnow was also asked if he checked out Oppenheimer and he couldn’t stop praising the movie and his experience in IMAX.

“I have! It was awesome. I went to an IMAX theater in Tampa. It was sick. I love the movies, so I go as much as I can.”

He added that the movie is 3-hour-long but not a single scene feels unnecessary in the movie. But similar to most of the fans, the Trinity Test scene was his favorite. The filmmaking excellence and realism were shown in that scene and everybody was both shocked and mesmerized by the sequence.
