Aussie Actor Callan Mulvey Books Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty' & '300: Battle Of Artemisia'

After years on Australian television, actor Callan Mulvey is making a move into the American film market. The actor has come into his own over the last few years, starring in the small-screen police-actioner "Rush" and it seems like the weekly exhibition of his action chops must have caught the right eyes somewhere as he's now scored roles in two big films in the works this year.

Mulvey Zero Dark Thirty 300 Prequel

After years on Australian television, actor Callan Mulvey is making a move into the American film market. The actor has come into his own over the last few years, starring in the small-screen police-actioner "Rush" and it seems like the weekly exhibition of his action chops must have caught the right eyes somewhere as he's now scored roles in two big films in the works this year.

First up is Kathryn Bigelow's film about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, "Zero Dark Thirty," which has already been lensing over the last month or so. As expected, there's no word on who exactly he'll play, but he joins a stellar ensemble cast that already includes Joel Edgerton, Chris Pratt, Jessica Chastain, Mark Strong, Kyle Chandler and Edgar Ramirez among others. The film hits later this year on December 19th.

Mulvey will probably want to take his training regimes up a notch for the second film, swords-and-sandals prequel "300: Battle Of Artemisia." The actor will star opposite fellow Aussie Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Jamie Blackley and Rodrigo Santoro, who reprises his role as Xerxes. "Smart People" helmer Noam Murro will direct the pic which already has an August 2nd, 2013 release date set in place.

We're guessing Mulvey is a name that'll be worth noting for the future. After all, Sam Worthington can't take every role he's offered, right? Below is a clip of the aforementioned show "Rush" that Mulvey stars in. [InsideFilm]
