Tom on UK TV Tomorrow Evening!

September 20, 2008

Tom’s movie ‘Black Hawk Dawn’ will be shown on UK TV tomorrow evening. 

The channel is Channel 5, and the time is 9:00pm.  The Channel 5 website has this to say:

what’s the score?

A veritable smorgasbord of phwoarsome actors are lined up for this gritty war movie based on a real-life mission in Somalia where US army rangers are dropped into Mogadishu with a lot of shooting, explosions and did we say, disastrous results?

watch out for the bit-parts

Black Hawk Down is one of those films where the bit-parters turned out to be future big-parters.

Ioan Gruffudd plays Beales
Ioan stepped from small-screen Hornblower fame and onto bigger and better Hollywood fare like Fantastic Four via this outing.

Orlando Bloom plays Blackburn
Straight out of Casualty and Midsomer Murders (for real), Orlando took on Black Hawk Down in 2001 just as Lord Of The Rings propelled him to mega-stardom as Legolas.

Hugh Dancy plays Schmid
Black Hawk Down was one of Hugh’s first movies before following Ioan into King Arthur and Shooting Dogs and erm, Basic Instinct 2.
