Gene Could Be King

Greetings Martians "The Trek Movie Report", reports that Gene Hunts' latest incarnation Colm Meaney could be celebrating soon. Colm's latest movie "Kings" has been put up as Ireland's entry for Best Foreign Language Film, at next years Academy Awards. The movie has also recently received a screening, as part of Toronto's Contemporary World Cinema this past Wednesday.

For those of you Life On Mars fans out there, who are yet to see Colm in action this movie (as it is being put up for an award) would probably be a good start. If the movie doesn't interest you, there is always Star Trek: The Next Generation or Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (one of my personal favourite shows) or many others roles in which you can catch Colm. Colm's acting career is quite extensive, commencing with a guest appearance on the famous "Z Cars" in 1978.

If you would like to find out more about Colm, it appear he does not have an official website but you can find out heaps about the man on his IMDB page. I personally am looking forward to seeing Colm as Gene, to see what he puts into the role. He's not Philip Glenister, but he is a damn good actor! The world should have no problem in trusting the Gene-Meaney, even me the sceptical one who trashed the idea of a US remake initially.

'Til next time Martians, peace and looks like this Gene ends up in 72 not 73 just to confirm. How do I know? The Godfather came out then.
