Marton Csokas into The Badlands
AMC’s goal for “Into the Badlands” was twofold: produce a compelling character drama, and introduce the highest caliber of martial arts filmmaking to a weekly, ongoing series. Left in the hands of creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (“Shanghai Noon,” “Smallville”), the series stars Daniel Wu as ruthless, prodigiously skilled warrior Sunny, who mentors teenage boy M.K. during a spiritual journey across a feudal civilization known as the Badlands.
With the help of trained assassins like Sunny, the area is ruled by rival barons, and for decades Quinn has consistently outflanked and outmaneuvered his fellow barons to keep the upper hand. His invincibility, however, begins to fade in light of brazen attacks by the newest baron, The Widow, who believes M.K. is the key to her success. As the battle for control of the Badlands heats up, the destinies of the stoic assassin and the impetuous teenager become intertwined.

Kiwi actor Marton Csokas to star alongside Jim Carrey in Dark Crimes
Updated On: 19th April 2018
Former Shortland Street star and Speight’s Southern Man Marton Csokas has a starring role opposite Jim Carrey in a new thriller.
In Dark Crimes, the 51-year-old, Invercargill born actor plays a famous crime writer who is investigated by Carrey’s tormented policeman when the latter uncovers similarities between an unsolved murder and a crime within one of the author’s novel.
Determined to tie the writer to the crimes, the cop develops a dangerous obsession with the writer’s girlfriend, a sex club worker played by French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg (Nymphomaniac).
The movie, which is being released in the US on a satellite TV channel and video-on-demand over the next few weeks, marks Carrey’s first lead role in a feature film since Dumb and Dumber To more than four years ago.
Csokas, who has also played villains in Hollywood blockbusters like xXx, The Bourne Supremacy and Aeon Flux, has been rather busier, appearing in political drama Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House and TV series Into the Badlands and Divorce during the past 12 months.
He first made his name in New Zealand by starring as Dr Leonard Rossi-Dodds on Shortland Street between 1993 and 1995 and appearing opposite Frank Whitten in a much-loved 1990s beer commercial.
At this stage, no release date has been confirmed for Dark Crimes in New Zealand.
