Tom Wisdom – one of the most versatile actors out there that isn’t a household name, has played a wide array of characters throughout his acting career. What would the fans like to see him do next?
His popularity hit the sky when he played Spartan warrior Astinos in the 2007 blockbuster film, 300. He was not a newcomer though; he has been a professional actor since the early nineties and had his first appearance in front of a camera in the 1994 made-for-TV flick, Good King Wenceslas alongside the late Jonathan Brandis.
Apart from these, he was popular in the UK in the early 2000′s for his roles as Tom Ferguson on Coronation Street and Marco Bailey on Mile High. He has played a gay man with anger issues (Suspicion), a bit of a rebel in the recent Poirot: Three Act Tragedy, and a theater student in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2. One of his sexiest roles was also his most silent, as DJ “Midnight” Mark in the 2009 film, Pirate Radio, a role that Tom has stated he loved playing.
Last year, when we asked him what kind of role he would like to play in the future, he stated:
“I would love to play a down and dirty rockstar! Along the lines of Midnight Mark but with all the bad stuff thrown in! Something darker than I have done before but still with the leather trousers. I also loved the physical aspect of 300 and would love to do more fighting. I thoroughly enjoyed killing people.”
So fans, what would you like to see him do next since he has covered just about every type of character already??
The Lightkeepers original motion picture soundtrack is now available for pre-order with a scheduled release date of June 15, 2010.
The album is composed by Pinar Toprak and is light, relaxing, and perfect for a lazy Summer afternoon. It is the perfect background music for settling in with a good book or romantic picnic. There is a slight nostalgia to the music, bringing you back to a simpler time.
The disc description states:
Taking a wonderfully old-fashioned, thematic approach with the music firmly rooted in the tradition of melody, up and coming composer Pinar Toprak has written a very romantic score for Daniel Adams’ drama, The Lightkeepers. Set in the year 1912 on Cape Cod, the film tells the story about love, romance and friendship with Richard Dreyfuss playing the lead as an old, grumpy lightkeeper. The music is scored for strings, woodwinds, piano and fiddle and fuses long melody lines and beautiful harmony with American folk music elements. The music has been described as “wistful,” “lovely,” “lush,” and “engaging” in various reviews of the film. We are proud to bring you this romantic orchestral score that stays in your heart for a long time!
