Max Brooks is widely known for his best-selling success with the books World War Z and The Zombie Survival Guide, but he had previously dabbled in acting with TV and cartoon voice-over roles. He’s next going before the cameras in The Girl From Mars, the latest feature from Satan Hates You and Hypothermia’s James Felix McKenney.

In the sci-fi comedy, Brooks (who made his screen debut in dad Mel’s 1983 comedy To Be Or Not To Be) will play an anchorman in a series of recurring television broadcasts within the movie. Pauley Perrette of TV’s NCIS stars as a girl who claims to be from the Red Planet and changes the life of a lonely nerd. “I’m always excited to work with Jim!” says Brooks, who previously cameoed as another TV newsman in Satan Hates You. His wife, playwright Michelle Kholos Brooks, will co-star in The Girl From Mars as well. »
