Harvey Keitel To Play Gene Hunt In US Life On Mars
The Hollywood reporter has revealed that Hollywood actor, Harvey Keitel, has been signed up to pay Gene Hunt for the American version of BBC drama, Life On Mars.
Keitel was Brooklyn born-and-raised and is expected to bring an authentic New York feel to the show.
Colm Meaney had been cast in the role, but studio execs obviously wanted a bigger name to launch the show on and have recently recast the role.
