Alex heads up river for role
HE’S parted ways with long-time love Holly Valance, but Aussie actor Alex O’Loughlin is not sitting around moping about the break-up.
O’Loughlin has landed the lead in the pilot for a new US drama, Three Rivers.
The role comes after the axe fell on the vampire series Moonlight, in which he played the lead role of Mick St John.
O’Loughlin has had a run of luck since relocating to the US to chase work.
He has appeared in The Shield and Wipeout, and was even tested for the James Bond role that went to hot Brit Daniel Craig."
Three Rivers, which is about transplant surgeons set in Pittsburgh. Alex has been cast in the role of Dr. Andy Yablonski.
According to our sources, the show is a one hour, single camera drama. Directing will be Dan Attias (Big Love, Grey’s Anatomy, House, Heroes, Entourage and many more successful, long running TV series). Shooting will begin in Pittsburgh in about a week or so and will take about 3 weeks.
Congrats to Alex. Your fans will be pulling for you!
