Caught up with Australia’s Vince Colosimo yesterday to talk about his role in the new Crowe/Di Caprio flick “Body of Lies”.Â We also touched upon his upcoming projects.
Itâ€™s been a great year for Colosimo. The actor is especially proud of ”Underbelly”, Channel 9â€™s controversial gangster series, in which he played â€˜The Black Prince of Lygon Stâ€™ Alphonso Gangitano.
Production has already begun on a prequel series. â€œThe next instalment is â€™75 to â€™85. Then, next year, they might do â€™85 to â€™95 â€“ and the character I play will come into it again. So Iâ€™m not in this next one, but if they get all the clear to do it, Iâ€™ll be in the next oneâ€.
Colosimo will next be seen in ”Carla Cametti”, a new SBS series starring Diana Glenn.
â€œWe finished filming that about a month ago â€“ more than that, two months ago. Itâ€™s a six by one-hour dramaâ€.
Film-wise, Colosimo will be seen in the new vampire pic ”Daybreakers”, co-starring Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe. The movie, directed by the Spierig Bros (”Undead”), was shot in Queensland.
â€œIt was meant to be released at the end of Octoberâ€¦ Novemberâ€¦ but I think itâ€™s been delayed and probably wonâ€™t be released till next year now. Itâ€™s a great vampire flick. Iâ€™ve seen a lot of it â€“ bits and pieces cut together â€“ and itâ€™s great.â€
And does Colosimo get to wear a pair of plastic fangs in the film? â€œWeâ€™re all vampires in it â€“ most of us are, anyway.â€
The actor says itâ€™s not of the ”Queen of the Damned” vein. â€œItâ€™s actually good â€“ and Iâ€™m not even much of a fan of vampire films. Iâ€™m not even much of a sci-fi fan. Itâ€™s been drama for me the whole way.â€
According to the Internet Movie Database, Colosimo is also attached to a couple of other Aussie movies â€“ ”Last Man”, starring with Guy Pearce and Joel Edgerton, and ”Last Dragon : Search for the Last Pearl”.
â€œ[Last Man] is still totally, totally, up in the air. I havenâ€™t heard anything about it for years. I heard itâ€™s coming around again but I havenâ€™t been notified of anything. And Last Dragon is a film thatâ€™s hopefully happening but again that hasnâ€™t been confirmed. Itâ€™s a family kidâ€™s flick with Sam Neillâ€.
