Once Upon A Time's Liam Garrigan Will Play King Arthur In Transformers: The Last Knight

1 hour ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It was reported some time ago that King Arthur and Merlin are expected to factor into Transformers: The Last Knight, and the former has now been cast in the upcoming fifth instalment of Michael Bay's divisive franchise. However, the director doesn't deserve any points for originality as Mashable reports that Liam Garrigan has actually been cast in the role he's already played in Once Upon a Time! On the plus side, we at least know that he's qualified to play the iconic British legend. Garrigan's other small screen credits include the likes of 24: Live Another Day and Strike Back while he also had a leading role in The Legends of Hercules. This is an interesting bit of casting as it now confirms that we'll be spending some time in the past in The Last Knight...unless Bay brings Arthur to the present that is! Set to be released on June 23rd next year, »

Strike Back: saluting a top action TV show

With plenty of macho fights, practical stunts and shoot-outs, Strike Back was an uncomplicated action TV show par excellence...

Action series Strike Back is destined to never be included in the pantheon of great TV shows. While The Sopranos or Breaking Bad are held in such high regard for their superlative writing, acting and drama, Strike Back will instead be remembered for the kick-ass action, gratuitous nudity and excellent chemistry between the lead actors.  

For fans of the show, that’s a good enough legacy.

So what is it about Strike Back – which can best be described as the lovechild of 24 and a Cannon Group action movie – that works so well? In this case it might just the very thing that keeps it off the 'Greatest TV Shows Ever' lists; its simplicity. For the most part the show is a meat-and-potatoes action thriller, containing all the elements »
