Colosimo talks Daybreakers

Colosimo talks Daybreakers

Caught up with Australia’s Vince Colosimo yesterday to talk about his role in the new Crowe/Di Caprio flick “Body of Lies”.  We also touched upon his upcoming projects.

It’s been a great year for Colosimo. The actor is especially proud of ”Underbelly”, Channel 9’s controversial gangster series, in which he played ‘The Black Prince of Lygon St’ Alphonso Gangitano.

Production has already begun on a prequel series. “The next instalment is ’75 to ’85. Then, next year, they might do ’85 to ’95 – and the character I play will come into it again. So I’m not in this next one, but if they get all the clear to do it, I’ll be in the next one”.

Colosimo will next be seen in ”Carla Cametti”, a new SBS series starring Diana Glenn.

“We finished filming that about a month ago – more than that, two months ago. It’s a six by one-hour drama”.

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.

“It was meant to be released at the end of October… November… but I think it’s been delayed and probably won’t be released till next year now. It’s a great vampire flick. I’ve seen a lot of it – bits and pieces cut together – and it’s great.”

And does Colosimo get to wear a pair of plastic fangs in the film? “We’re all vampires in it – most of us are, anyway.”

The actor says it’s not of the ”Queen of the Damned” vein. “It’s actually good – and I’m not even much of a fan of vampire films. I’m not even much of a sci-fi fan. It’s been drama for me the whole way.”

According to the Internet Movie Database, Colosimo is also attached to a couple of other Aussie movies – ”Last Man”, starring with Guy Pearce and Joel Edgerton, and ”Last Dragon : Search for the Last Pearl”.

“[Last Man] is still totally, totally, up in the air. I haven’t heard anything about it for years. I heard it’s coming around again but I haven’t been notified of anything. And Last Dragon is a film that’s hopefully happening but again that hasn’t been confirmed. It’s a family kid’s flick with Sam Neill”.
