Default Eric Bana has found work again

I see Eric Bana was able to land a role in The Time Traveler's Wife. Nice to see his role as Nero hasn't hindered his career.

Nah, when the last film you were in made $250 million, in Hollywood, it's not likely to slow you down when looking for work.

Of course, he actually filmed it before he filmed Star Trek so it really didn't hinder him at all for that particular role.

I see he's still time traveling.
The premise looks a lot like Journey Man that was on TV last year.

That was starting to get interesting...then it was canceled. The premise was pretty good.

It may have become more like "Quantum "Leap" as there seemed to be a developing method to the madness of (maybe not) random traveling.

He's also in the upcoming Judd Apatow directed comedy 'Funny People'.

Eric Bana is one of those actors who started out as a standup comedian and has made the leap from comedy to drama with no trouble at all, primarily because he is reasonably versatile.

I could imagine him taking on some smaller roles in the future if they appealed to him (Like for example a shark in Finding Nemo) but I don't imagine that his career would "suffer" even if he doesn't ever do another blockbuster.

Bana will never have difficulty getting work. Ever.

I'm surprised to hear he was a stand up comedian first! He doesn't seem like a funny guy at all. That said, his career was pretty established before Nero, so I just assumed it would continue well. He's had big roles in Hulk, Munich, The Other Bolyen Girl, etc and seems to be a pretty diverse kind of actor, the kind that won't get typecast easily.

He was in Australia. It's just that a lot of his major roles in Hollywood were large and dramatic -- and he became famous for Chopper.

Probably the closest he's come to a comic role in Hollywood was as a shark in Finding Nemo! But before Chopper he was in quite a few Australian comedy movies, including The Castle (as the main character's kickboxing-obsessed son in law) and also he was in a minor soap opera type thingy called "Something in the Air" which had a fairly decent run on daytime ABC.

...And the rest is if you search "Full Frontal" on youtube.
