Paul Blackthorne is a great actor, who has had bad luck with find a show that lasts more than a season or two. He joins the cast of The River as Clark, the “cagey” producer. I’m not superstitious, so I don’t think the failures of the past have any impact on the future, still AOL TV has named Blackthorne one the 10 Stars With Bad TV Luck.
Paul Blackthorne’s character Clark is the producer of the documentary in The River. He is Emmet‘s ex-producer, and we are lead to be suspicious of him. Tess hires him back because the documentary will fund the rescue mission. Sammy and Andreus work as cameramen under Clark.
The English actor was the lead actor in Sci-Fi’s The Dresden Files, and he has played several supporting roles in shows like ER, 24, Lipstick Jungle, Monk, Deadwood, and Medium.
Jeff Galfer will play Sammy Kirsch in The River, but before that he was busy doing photography, commercials, and guest roles in on several TV shows. He was Dr. Burke in All My Children, but was able to play two different characters on the same show! I prefer him as George below (he starts speaking at 2:24 in).
Classy girls like her don’t like malt liquor!
Thomas Kretschmann stars as lethal bodyguard Captain Kurt Brynildson in The River, but he has also landed the title role in Dracula 3D, which is being filmed now.
