You might remember that we went to Australia a while back to do casting. Now we’d like you to meet Christopher Kirby who will be joining Iron Sky as the third member of the main cast. Christopher has spent the previous week in the deepest darkest Finnish countryside, holed up in a farm with Timo, Julia and Götz in an intensive rehearsal retreat, and today they emerged in front of the Finnish journalists.
Chris is an Australian-American actor who left Los Angeles for the land down under in 1999. He is a veteran of classic science fiction, starting his career with a role in Quantum Leap. He then went on to a recurring role in Space: Above & Beyond before moving on to films such as Daybreakers and Matrix: Reloaded & Matrix: Revolutions. Appropriately enough his character in the Matrix sequels was called Mauser.
Chris plays James Washington, the first African American astronaut on the moon. The year 2018 will see the first moon landing since 1972, sadly his crew won’t be as lucky as the Apollo astronauts.
Check out the interview with Chris below to hear what he’s got to say about fighting the Moon Nazi menace.
