Streaming On Hulu: Australian Dramatic Series 'The Straits'
"The problem with a war is, everybody loses.  So, whatever we do now has to finish it." These are a father's words of wisdom, bestowed upon his adult children as they follow in his footsteps, running drugs and guns between Australia and Papua New Guinea, and warring with the local competition in the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's (ABC) ten-episode dramatic series, The Straits. Led by Emmy Award-winning Scottish actor Brian Cox, The Straits is a drama that relies heavily on violence and dark humor to convey the tale of Harry (Cox) and Kitty (Rena Owen) Montebello, an Australian couple who has raised four adopted children to participate in and someday master the family's criminal enterprise.  Aaron Fa'aoso, Jimi Bani, Suzannah Bayes-Morton, and Firass Dirani star as their sometimes reluctant-to-cooperate brood. Produced by Matchbox Pictures, The Straits had a one-season run in 2012, before getting the axe and landing on Hulu.  So if you're interested in.

Australian actor Aaron Fa'aoso has been handed a fine after pleading guilty to charges stemming from his arrest at a nightclub in Cairns last year.

The Straits star admitted charges of wilful damage and drunk or disorderly behaviour for wrecking a cash register during a bust-up at the city's Heritage nightclub in October.

Fa'aoso appeared at Cairns Magistrates Court on Monday for sentencing and he was ordered to pay a $363 (£227) fine and hand over $913 (£571) for damage to the cash register.

His conviction was not recorded, but he was placed on a six-month good behaviour bond, which means he will have to stay out of trouble or face more court action.
