Actor, writer and director Anthony Hayes has many nicknames.
While "Tony" or "Hayes" are obvious, he's also been called "the John Turturro of Australian acting" given his tendency to nail standout supporting roles and the fact that filmmakers tend to offer him roles they have earmarked for him, rather than audition him. Luis Guzman could be another comparison.
His roles playing bearded, mulleted, working-class criminal types have spawned a moniker: "The King of Western Grit" -- and his most hardcore fans have created an online shrine as a homage to this idea.
Nominated for four Australian Film Institute awards and winner of two, he's played bogans and crims, soldiers and cops; in David Ceasar's Prime Mover he played three separate roles, and in his most recent work on the box -- in the dark black satirical comedy series Review with Myles Barlow -- he played himself, albeit a mad drug-dealing criminal version. »
Australian writer/director Jonathan Teplitzky, best known for his 2003 film Gettin' Square which starred Hollywood It boy Sam Worthington, will soon be bringing his next project to life. Burning Man, expected to be released internationally in 2011, is a reckless, irreverent and poignantly told story about a father and son's journey back to happiness. Up-and-coming British actor Matthew Goode (pictured), noted for his fine performance in Tom Ford's A Single Man, is set to play Tom; an English chef who has a chic restaurant on Bondi Beach. Tom is a man behaving badly, surrounded by a group of women that try to help him put his life back together. »
