Exclusive Interview – Mark “Rhino” Smith talks Idris Elba’s Yardie and the relationship between bodybuilding and acting

Red Stewart chats with Mark “Rhino” Smith…

Mark “Rhino” Smith is an English bodybuilder turned actor who has been working in the television and film industries since the late-90s. He is best known for his roles in Gladiators, Renford Rejects, and The Last Ship. His latest work was for the upcoming British crime drama movie Yardie, which was helmed by Idris Elba in his directorial debut.

Flickering Myth had the privilege to interview him, and I in turn had the honor to conduct it:

I’ve noticed a lot of bodybuilders over the decades have transitioned into the film industry, from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Lou Ferrigno to David Prowse. Is there something about the craft that makes acting a natural development in your career, or is it simply a case of having the right height/weight for the role, as I recall Liam Neeson saying in an interview with Peter Travers?

Who’s Afraid of Tom Arnold?

When Tom Arnold opens the big wooden door of his house in Beverly Hills on a Tuesday in late spring, he’s wearing a blue T-shirt with a Superman “S” logo on it. On the floor behind him is a pink, toddler-size Minnie Mouse car, property of his two-year-old daughter, Quinn. “Hey, buddy,” he says, out of breath from his flight down the stairs, and still sweaty, post-shower, from his morning cardio. He lost 90 pounds five years ago, when his son, Jax, was born, aiming to stick around for the

Mark Hamill Reveals The Horrible Acting Advice He Gave Arnold Schwarzenegger

There are many ways of breaking into show business, and what works for one budding star may turn out to be the completely wrong approach for another. This is something that Mark Hamill surely realized when the advice he once gave to a famed Austrian bodybuilder on how best to make the jump into movies turned out to be woefully misguided.

In a recent Tweet, the Star Wars actor recalled an exchange with a certain Arnold Schwarzenegger back when the future Terminator had yet to cement his status as an action cinema icon.

“Arnold Schwarzenegger asked me for advice when he was just starting out. I told him to lose his accent for a wider range of roles & to change his last name since no one could pronounce it. He did the opposite & became one of the biggest stars Ever.”

While we can laugh about Hamill’s recommendations in retrospect,

Arnie Teases Bearded Look For New Terminator Movie

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been spending some time in the gym – not that that’s particularly newsworthy in and of itself, but this time, he’s brought company: Gabriel Luna.

The former Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star has signed on to play a machine for The Terminator, Tim Miller and James Cameron’s franchise revival that looks set to quietly retcon Genisys (thank the heavens) late next year. Filming has already commenced across parts of Europe – namely Madrid and Hungary – after fans were treated to an early peek at the film’s leading ladies: Linda Hamilton (Sarah Connor), Mackenzie Davis (Grace) and Natalia Reyes (Dani Ramos).

And while he’s yet to set foot on The Terminator set himself (that we know of), Schwarzenegger has shared a new workout photo in which he’s seen rocking a beard and putting Gabriel Luna through his paces. Entitled “machine learning,

The Ultimate Predator TV Spot Arrives as Tickets Go on Sale

The video arrives as pre-sale tickets for the movie have officially gone on sale. So if you're eager to catch the hunter's return on opening night, now is your chance to secure some premium seats.

The marketing for The Predator got off to something of a rocky start, as the first trailer left many fans feeling cold and not sure what to make of it.

The Toronto International Film Festival may be closely aligned with Oscar season, but the Canadian festival entertains a very different crowd after dark. For over 30 years, the Midnight Madness section has premiered a range of legendary genre movies, from “Cabin Fever” to “The Raid,” and garnered a raucous fan base that packs the Ryerson Theatre each year. With a single new title screening across each of the 10 nights, this tightly curated section also provides a slim overview of the many forms that genre filmmaking can take, and the 2018 edition is no exception.
