Well, put it this way. McKidd has a hankering to be an action star - or at least do something a little outside the world of the prime time soap opera - and has been training himself up to do just that. The trainer in question, or so I'm told, is Undisputed 3 fight choreographer Larnell Stovall. And what follows is a fight reel that turned up in my mailbox today shot by the two of them after about three weeks of training together. No money, no polish, not really intended for public eyes, just some guys messing around to see whether the training has paid off.
And I don't know about you but I rather like the look of McKidd in this. The fighting is a little bit raw but he's got the sort of intensity to him that really sells it. Plus the man's actually a very, very good actor. All of which leads me to say this:
"Hey, Hollywood! Remember Liam Neeson in Taken? Looking for a guy who could carry a similar sort of action / drama hybrid? This is your guy."
