Sullivan Stapleton: A New Action Hero?

Sullivan Stapleton is an Australian born actor who was brought to mainstream attention with the excellent action series Strike Back.

His character Sgt. Damien Scott is womanizing and sleazy and yet we like him because he is loyal to his friend and is excellent at his job.

Stapleton has that natural badass look and I think he’s a mixture of Jason Statham and Bruce Willis (in his prime).

I think I’m the only person who enjoyed 300: Rise of an Empire but I thought Stapleton really shone in that movie and was believably tough as Themistokles.

 

He isn’t overly muscular but tough enough that you wouldn’t want to spill his pint.

His new TV series Blindspot is incredibly enjoyable and he has an almost John McClane way about him. The show is about a Jane Doe who is found in Times Square with no memory and is covered with mysterious tattoos all over her body.

The first few episodes have been a lot of fun and I will be tuning in next Monday to see how the story unfolds.

Stapleton doesn’t seem to have a problem with the tough guy persona; in a recent interview he said “The ability to play those characters that have a bit of that aggressiveness, those hard-line characters mixed with vulnerability, a big heart, that’s is the way my career has run its course really.”

Nothing wrong with that and I hope he continues to kick ass for years to come.
