Darn. Why is it everything that Adrian is starring in is going straight to scifi and/or DVD? No wonder he does not get offers to appear for cast calls for many good movies. His films hardly ever make the big screen. I am hoping that his new ones "The Heavy" and "Eveborgs" at least make the big screen. Hollywood is missing such a fine actor by not contacting him.

I'm actually very pleased to see
"The Source" air on the Sci Fi

I'd rather see him on TV any day of the week before he does one more video movie. That's why I feel the BBC/ITV miniseries
would work very well. His fan base came from TV and I believe that's where they still are.

Someone is listening??

Unfortunately I do not get BBC as that is on the higher priced cable and our mobilehome park is not wired for that. Just as glad as Cable is expensive enough as is.
There have been so many good casting parts listed herein that I just wish he would try out for. Most of his fan base I believe is still here in the States. i believe his Highlander the Series appeared in the states first before Europe. He really needs to appear on the big screen because those viewers who are not familiar with his name orhis works will not purchase the DVD versions of his latest movies. Will VCR The Source but hope The Heavy and Eyeborgs make the big screen and then DVD.
