INT: Eric Bana

Eric Bana is a surprise to me. I'd enjoyed his performance in MUNICH and yes, even THE HULK. But I had no idea how funny this Australian actor really was. But in STAR TREK, he is far from funny. As Nero, Bana is downright creepy, and he makes for one hell of a Star Trek bad guy. I guess the biggest surprise I had sitting down with Eric is his accent. Yes, I knew he was Australian, but after watching his other work, I guess I just expected some kind of tough guy growl.

He was a pleasure to talk with. And it was also nice to find out if the rumors about a sequel to CHOPPER are true... they are not. And soon, you can see this fine actor in the latest from Judd Apatow, FUNNY PEOPLE. But I have a feeling a damn huge number will see him this coming Friday when Star Trek opens in a universe near you.
