Kevin McKidd is one of those actors who deserves some major roles and more spotlight attention. He was incredible in the way-too-short HBO series, Rome, and is excellent in all of his other work including Trainspotting, Journeyman, amongst roles in many other films.
In addition to this acting work, comic book fans may know him for being the long-rumored candidate to play Thor for a very long time back in the day and video game fans will recognize him for voicing (and providing the face) of Captain "Soap" MacTavish in what is now know as the most successfully launched video game ever: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
With the insane success (financially and critically) of the latest Activision video game and the news over the last several months of them planning a Call of Duty movie, those plans will surely be getting a kickstart now. Read below to find out what McKidd has to say about Rome's return in the form of a full-length film and of his interest in the Call of Duty movie.
We've known that the Rome movie was happening for quite some time now and with many fans picking up the show on Home Video since the series finished its run on HBO, the fanbase and desire to see more of Lucius Vorenus again is growing.
McKidd touched on the status of Rome project and it's all sounding good at the moment and clarified that his character isn't dead although the end of the series leaves viewers believing it to be a likely outcome.
"There is a script that is being shopped and it's supposedly very good, I haven't seen it, but I am definitely going to be a part of the movie... He is very much alive, so that should be a fun story to tell."
To get your McKidd fix now, you can watch him Grey's Anatomy and as Poseidon in the upcoming Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
