I guess it’s true what they say: you do learn something new everyday. For instance, I didn’t know former “Rome” star Kevin McKidd was the voice of Soap MacTavish in the “Modern Warfare 2” game. Go figure. In any case, speaking to the New York Post, McKidd, who can currently be seen trolling the hallways of “Grey’s Anatomy” for nurse tail, updates the paper on two (possible) upcoming projects: a “Rome” feature film and a possible movie based on the “Modern Warfare 2” game, which is currently enjoying record-breaking sales worldwide as I type this.
About a possible “Rome” movie:
“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,” Kevin told PopWrap. He then went on to say that his character, soldier/politician Lucius Vorenus, is not dead despite what happened in the show. “He very much alive, so that should be a fun story to tell.”
On a possible “Modern Warfare 2” movie:
“They were looking for a rough, Scottish actor in Hollywood they probably couldn’t get Gerard Butler, so they got the No. 2 Gerard Butler, me. I had no idea it would be so huge, and now there are talks of a feature film,” he revealed to PopWrap. Then came the kicker, when asked if he would be bringing Soap to life in the movie, he said, “if the script is good, and Gerard isn’t available [laughs], then absolutely.”
Man has a sense of humor about his career, which is always a good thing. When you start taking yourself and your career too seriously in a place like Hollywood, that’s when you know you’re in trouble. Just ask that asshat Sean Penn.
