The adventure thriller I worked on last year gets a Jan 12 release, bumped up from its original April date. I play the English scientist Matt Collins. Do I make it out alive? You'll have to see it to find out... Hehehe. Once it's going, it's a helluva ride that doesn't let up. And it's shot in beautiful South Africa, so come on - check it out when it hits your town.
There are a few trailers running around, not to mention a billboard and poster blitz in LA. Here's a taste...

After a looong downtime, I have finally returned to my blog. Sorry blog, sorry blog readers. The reason is thanks to a busy end to the year and a long overdue getaway. Visited San Francisco which is such a beautiful city. Had a wonderful holiday; walked miles of hilly streets, crossed the Golden Gate bridge, visited Alcatraz, had the best pasta of my life in North Beach and ate enough clam chowder for future generations. Oh - and I bought a beret. Nicole convinced me to try one on and now I have an alternative to the grubby old baseball cap. I'd like to think I look sauve and Euro-chic in the thing. I may just look creepy. The jury is out...
Last year tailed off nicely as I got to voice the character of Dr Doom for the upcoming game Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Meanwhile, Final Fantasy XII continues to impress me, as the mails keep coming. Thank you so much to all of you who wrote in with your kind words. I have attempted to respond to each message personally, but if a few slipped thru the cracks, please know I am touched. Great to know that other people enjoy what you enjoy doing!
Now to the title of this post. I was blown away by the opportunity to work on 24 for FOX. I play a character called Leon, which is as much as I'm allowed to say. But I got to work with the outstanding Kiefer Sutherland, who, like his father, is a consummate pro. Look out for me in Episode 13 ("6pm - 7pm") of the new series (6).
Hope you all had a great holiday, whomever and wherever you are. Here's to a rewarding 2007, full of love, laughter, joy and fulfilment!
