Bana Found 'Star Trek XI' Role Irresistible
When offered the role of Nero, <font color=yellow>Eric Bana</font> simply couldn't turn it down.<p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF=""></A>, the chance to play a villain was simply too delicious to turn down. "I couldn't resist," he said. "I read it and I know (director J.J. Abrams) pretty well and there was just no way to say no. It's just too much fun."<p>"I'm looking forward to playing a villain," Bana reiterated, speaking with <A class="link" HREF="">The Daily Telegraph</A>. "So it should be fun." Bana will be playing the role of Nero, a Romulan villain.<p>Bana's most recent role was that of Henry VIII, in the recently released <i>The Other Boleyn Girl</i>, a story of the sisters Mary and Anne Boleyn and their relationships with Henry VIII. <i>The Other Boleyn Girl</i> is based on the book of the same name by <font color=yellow>Philippa Gregory</font>. Bana played opposite <font color=yellow>Scarlett Johansson</font> and <font color=yellow>Natalie Portman</font>, who play the rival sisters. <i>The Other Boleyn Girl</i> opened to tepid reviews as reported by <A class="link" HREF="">Rotten Tomatoes</A>. <p>To read more, head to the links located <A class="link" HREF="">here</A> and <A class="link" HREF=",22049,23297268-5009160,00.html">here</A>.<center></center>

He should be used to playing villains after having played Henry VIII.
And yes, anyone who gets to be in the same room with Natalie Portman :drool: is one lucky bastard.
