I have an anniversary tomorrow.
A one year anniversary to be precise.
It will be one year to the day that I became totally obsessed with Karl Urban!
It’s sad isn’t it.
One year ago tomorrow we went to see Dredd 3D and even though I had seen him in other things for nearly 10 years it was only after Dredd 3D that I became obsessed.
It really has been an obsession too.
There is barely a blog of mine over the last year that doesn’t mention him. Even fleetingly.
He’s made it to my Dish of the Weeks 3 times!!
So I owe a big thank you to my husband.
If he wasn’t such a big 2000 AD fan I wouldn’t have even have known who Dredd was.
In the last year, apart from his very early TV roles in New Zealand, I have seen and collected everything he has been in.
Being a Trekker I am over the moon that he plays Dr ‘Bones’ McCoy in the JJ Abrams reboot of the Star Trek franchise.
He is a franchise kind of guy because he was also Eomer in Lord of the rings.
He is one sexy vampire in Priest.
He was Bourne’s greatest adversary in The Bourne Supremacy.
He kicks ass and gets his ass seriously kicked in RED with Bruce Willis.
Just a few of my favourites.
The more I find out about Karl the more I love him.
He is living his dream.
He makes movies that feed his inner Geek and he is one of the biggest Geeks going!!
He is a Star Trek fan.
He loves Sci-fi.
He is obsessed with Judge Dredd.
It’s not surprising then that JJ Abrams managed to get him to star in his new TV series ‘Almost Human’ that starts on November 4th.
I really can’t wait to get this one.
Karl Urban on my TV every week for a whole series!!
But Karl as just Karl is simply the best.
Great excuse to watch Dredd again tomorrow and follow it with a few more Urban movies.
Doom, Priest, Pathfinder, Riddick, Price of Milk, RED, Ghost Ship, Lord of the Rings 2 and 3, Out of the Blue, And Soon the Darkness, The Truth About Demons, Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness….. there just aren’t enough hours in the day!!
