Walshe-Howling is Point Break 2 rogue

Local Melbourne actor Damian Walshe-Howling – ran into him at the Coles supermarket in St.Kilda; everyone needs milk, right? – has snagged a plum role in director Jan de Bont’s “Point Break Indo”.

Walshe-Howling, probably best known for his roles in local series’ “Blue Heelers” and “Underbelly”, will play the bad guy in the sequel, a sea-pirate named Dali. He and his team wear masks of ‘The Bush Administration’ (George Bush, Colin Powell, Dick Cheney and so on) as they strip boats for loot. Dali’s sister, Teela, ends up falling in love with Billy Dalton, an undercover Fed working in Dali’s gang, which complicates matters.

International audiences will have seen Walshe-Howling in Gregor Jordan’s “Ned Kelly” opposite Heath Ledger and Orlando Bloom, or in “Macbeth” starring Sam Worthington in the lead role.

“Point Break Indo” will shoot in both Indonesia and Australia.
