^^ He's almost like a chameleon, able to change his looks to fit the role. Quite amazing.
Yep - pretty much the only thing that doesn't change are his eyebrows! He does seem to frown a lot, our serious boy

What color are they?
I'd guess hazel. They appear to change from picture to picture, ranging from dark brown to almost blue, but here's a pretty good look. Kinda David Gilmour-ish, there.

Now this is why M'Sharak's the mod around here! Finds out useful information and an amazing photo for us.

That's what I call service! Does T'Bonz do mod of the month awards

I'm looking at my Mc Coy closeup wallpaper I have on my desktop at work and they do look hazel.

wow, they look almost silvery-gray to me. so beautiful!

I am now remembering an interview with Pine and Quinto in which Pine was talking about having man-crushes on all kinds of men, including Bana and Urban.

Thanks for the picture! I was going to guess hazel, too -- for the same reason.

I've noticed it seems like a number of actors have eyes that take on color.

I personally wouldn't say the only thing, but I definitely think he is one of the best things about that movie.
Yes, that was a bit harsh of me - but I keep getting distracted by Karl and his big stick


His role may have been secondary, but very noticeable. More passionate/intense than Vin Diesel's portrayal of Riddick.

It wasn't until they started announcing cast members that I started to say "oh that was him" in so and so. I always thought Ceaser in "Xena: Warrior Princess" was pretty hot, but I didn't connect the dots until the last year or so.

Here's Karl in Doom! I can't remember anything about the movie except that Karl was in it and so was The Rock. Plus monsters.

I think he looks a little like McCoy in body armor (yays!)
I started watching that movie, zoned out about midway and zoned back in by the end. From what I saw, he was really really good in that movie.

I like him how I like all my men....brunette and/or dark....or course there are always exceptions.

I never heard of him before this movie....shocking to see just how much he's been in.

Everybody loves his portrayal of Bones....have we figured out why yet?
Oh yes because he came the closest of capturing the original spirit of the character made famous by Kelley. So as much as everybody wants to say...Oh no we don't want a re-hash or we don't want them imitating....that's pretty much exactly what we want...hence the high praise for Mccoy being "cast" correctly.

Still think Urban would of made a better Captain too!


I would like to see Urban relax his facial expressions a little, and he really doesn't need to channel Kelley's gruffness as much, but otherwise he did a great job as McCoy. He's definitely my favorite character from this movie.

Re: Karl Urban -- blond or brunette?

This is a new timeline, maybe we'll get to see a softer side of McCoy

Maybe. Although, I like to pretend he is available. If they do put him in a relationship, none of that ooey gooey "soapy" (as you mention) stuff.

Thanks! I headed right over to vote!
