Wanna see a very young Karl Urban? Can't Post

NZ On Screen has compiled a list of videos that show Kiwi actors and TV personalities, who are well-known in New Zealand, during the early parts of their careers.

One of them is a full episode of a short-lived drama from 1992 called Homeward Bound, with a cast that includes Karl Urban waaaaay before he was 'known'.

I really hope this video will screen for those based outside NZ: http://www.nzonscreen.com/...und-episode-one-1992 (Fast-forward to 7min20s.)

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

it works for me. :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

I think I've watched videos at this site before... notably 'Boggans'.

Karl is a cutie.

*giggle* Wow! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's so weird to see him so bouncy and bubbly! LOVE THE HAIR! He's one of those very lucky ones who gets better with age ;) That was fun! Thanks Ataahua *still smiling*

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

Thanks for posting [In reply to] Can't Post

Karl is one I wish would get better roles... nothing I've seen him in utilizes his true potential.

Have you seen him in Price of Milk? [In reply to] Can't Post

or Reds. I think I enjoyed him the most in those two roles and in Star Trek.

But I wish he was given a wider range of roles to work with.

I really liked him in The Bourne Supremacy. [In reply to] Can't Post

He asked for less dialogue (which I see he has also done for Dredd 3D), which surprised his director who was used to actors asking for *more* lines.

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."

I loved him in Star Trek [In reply to] Can't Post

He was a perfect McCoy: "Don't pander to me, kid. One tiny crack in the hull and our blood boils in thirteen seconds. Solar flare might crop up, cook us in our seats. And wait'll you're sitting pretty with a case of Andorian shingles, see if you're still so relaxed when your eyeballs are bleeding. Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence" Heart

I liked him in The Bourne Supremacy, too.
