Check out the easy-riding Callan Mulvey in TEN’s upcoming drama series Brothers in Arms.
The former Rush star joins a formidable line-up of tough guys in recreating the 1984 bikie massacre in Sydney.
They include Matthew Nable (Killer Elite, 33Postcards, East West 101), Anthony Hayes (The Slap, Burning Man, Animal Kingdom), Todd Lasance (The Great Mint Swindle, Crownies, Cloudstreet, Underbelly Files: Tell Them Lucifer Was Here), Luke Ford (Red Dog, Animal Kingdom, The Black Balloon), Jeremy Lindsay Taylor (Underbelly: Razor, Sea Patrol, Blue Heelers, Something In The Air), Damian Walshe-Howling (Terra Nova, The Reef, Underbelly), Nathaniel Dean (Wild Boys, Rush, Satisfaction, Underbelly), and Luke Hemsworth (Tangle, Neighbours, Satisfaction.)
They will be joined by Susie Porter (East West 101, The Jesters, Sisters of War, My Place) and Maeve Dermody (Paper Giants, Griff The Invisible, Beautiful Kate).
The six part drama series recently finished filming in Sydney.
It tells the true story of Fathers Day 1984, when two motorcycle clubs – the Bandidos and the Comancheros – went to war at a public swap meet. After a brief but violent battle, seven people had been shot dead, including a 14 year old innocent bystander, and some forty other club members needed hospitalisation.
TEN Executive Producer Rick Maier says: “There is obviously a great responsibility to tell a story like this truthfully, respectfully and with conviction – so we felt very privileged to see this outstanding ensemble come together. This was a complex shoot and we think that across the board they have delivered the performance of their careers.”
Based on the book by Lindsay Simpson and Sandra Harvey, Brothers in Arms is written by Greg Haddrick (Crownies, Underbelly, The Society Murders, My Husband My Killer, MDA), Roger Simpson (Satisfaction, Stingers, Halifax fp, Good Guys, Bad Guys) and Jo Martino (Satisfaction, Winners & Losers, Carla Cametti PD, Stingers). It is directed by Peter Andrikidis (The Straits, Killing Time, East West 101, Underbelly, Jessica, My Husband My Killer).
