Morning Man Encore: Grant Bowler!
NOTE: Grant Bowler stars in this week’s TV movie Liz and Dick as Richard Burton. Here is an encore posting of when he was Morning Man on Dec. 4, 2009.
There’s been a lot of positive buzz in recent days over the news that hunky New Zealand-born actor Grant Bowler has joined the cast of HBO’s True Blood.
Because there just aren’t enough hot guys on that show already, right? We don’t know much about the role Grant will be playing except this: he’s a werewolf!
The 41-year-old star is coming off of a recurring role of Connor Owens on Ugly Betty, the CFO of Meade Publications who romanced the series’ main villain played by Vanessa Williams. He also had a recurring role on Lost.
While these recent TV gigs have made Grant more familiar to American audiences, he’s been a big name in Australia for some time now as host of the Australian version of The Mole for three years. As an actor, he starred in such Australian shows as Blue Heelers, Medivac, Pacific Drive, Always Greener, Stingers and Something in the Air.
