Rumor Control: Michael Biehn NOT in Talks for Hell Hunters
Two Michael Biehn stories in a row? Yep, it's further proof that the man just doesn't sleep. Recently he created and starred in The Victim, then he starred in and toured for The Divide, and now a rumor has come that he's snagged a lead role in the upcoming TV series "Hell Hunters." Untrue.
Many sites across the Net are reporting this as fact so we did a little legwork, contacted Michael, and though he says the series has a cool title, he doesn't know ANYTHING about it. It is possible they're talking to his people, but thus far it's a no go. Check out the original press release below for details about the show.
From the Press Release

Michael Berryman will be playing the role of LAWRENCE BEASLEY, the kindhearted World War II Marine Raider veteran who, after surviving a napalm explosion in combat, turns school janitor and teaches the boys hand-to-hand combat.
The series will be directed by Rogue River and Sum of 9 director Jourdan McClure and is scheduled to begin filming this summer. "Hell Hunters" was created by Lawrence Donini, Emily Hansen, AJ Denton, and Corey Keer.
