While doing a bit of digging on the latest cast member to join LOTR, Joel Tobeck, I’ve discovered two things:

1) Amazingly he was never on Shorland Street

2) He plays Creegan, the coolest looking dude from ‘Cleopatra 2525’.

Joel Tobeck has been working on TV and Film as early as 1986. His first job was an uncredited role in ‘Queen City Rocker’, he also played ‘The Boyfriend from Hell’ (hmm sounds like my X’s name for me) in ‘The Shrimp on the Barbie’. He has also done extensive work on the ‘Herc, Xena, Cleopatra 2525’ gigs, playing roles such as ‘Strife’ ‘Demios’ and ‘King Boraeus’. Read a revealing interview about Tobeck here.
