A big fan of the TV biker drama, the 'Troy' actor admits he recruits Charlie Hunnam for his film 'Blackbird' with hope that the latter would help him land a regular role.
Aussie movie star Eric Bana is begging pals Charlie Hunnam and Kim Coates to help him land a role on U.S. TV biker drama "Sons of Anarchy" - because he's a big fan of the show. The "Troy" star, who is a well-known car and bike fanatic, has been watching the show since it started in 2008 - and he wants a regular role.
He tells WENN, "One of my best friends, Kim Coates, plays Tig in 'Sons of Anarchy' so I've been on him since day one to do the show because I'm the hugest fan." And Bana admits he recruited Hunnam for his new film "Blackbird" in the hope the actor would return the favor, "It's one of the reasons I was really keen on getting Charlie into the film."
Indie thriller "Blackbird" also features Sissy Spacek, Olivia Wilde and Kris Kristofferson.
