Mad Max actors in other shows.. where have you seen them?

Postby roadwarriormfp » Mon Apr 25, 2011 6:43 pm

Ok the other day i was bored and watching AIRWOLF!!! on tv.. and lo and behold a familer face appears!
Mike Preston! (Papagallo) who played a bad guy in a south american contry and is then blown up in the usual helicopter gunship battle.
Im guessing 2 or 3 yrs after MadMax2?

I also recently bought a DVD mini series from the 1989 called "The Magistrate"
This series was a joint venture with Italian TV and the ABC and basically about an Italian Magistrate who ends up in Melbourne Australia looking for his missing son.
The mafia being involved in the storyline.
The credits list George Novak as one of the stuntmen and David Eggby is also listed as an associate producer!

So where else have you seen madmax actors and crew in small bit parts?

I know Mel gibson appeared in the Sullivans, Gallipoli (also Geoff Parry, Reg Evens and Robert Grubb aka pigkiller)
We are 100% snafu....

I remember Mike Preston on an episode of 'The A-Team' about the same time. Again, playing the heavy.
"There are over 550 million smallarms in worldwide circulation. That's one weapon for every 12 people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11?"

"The Teutonic reputation for brutality is well founded. Their operas last for 3 or 4 days and they have no word for 'fluffy'."

This what I use IMDb for.

Razorback is an example.
LTDHO = Supercharged Intercooled 5.7L 360rwkw, 6 speed

XB Coupe = Stock Fairmont GS with 351 and 4 speed.

But I really want a 600rwhp XB coupe!

According to IMDB, Geoff Parry was in a 1990 episode of One Foot In The Grave called Dramatic Fever.

He played a dinner party guest called Gerry who appears at the end of the episode. Spoiler alert!!! Gerry plots revenge on a man who has wronged him. Sound familiar? He appears seven minutes into part three on youtube.

Most here know this already, but 'The Chain Reaction' probably has the most actors from Mad Max

Steve Bisley - Goose
Hugh Keays-Byrne - Toecutter
Roger Ward - Fifi
Tim Burns - Johnny
David Bracks - Mudguts
Mel Gibson - Max

As well as George Miller being listed as co-producer (and an uncredited second unit director), several other crew members also saw work in Mad Max 2.

Graham 'Grace' Walker - Art Direction
Norma Moriceau - Costume Design
Max Aspin - Stunt Coordinator
Etc, etc.

Full list is here.

Steven Bisley, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Tim Burns, David Bracks, Roger Ward and also Mel Gibson (in a short scene)appear in the Oz movie The Chain Reaction by director Ian Barry... and George Miller for the action scenes. So it is. 8-)
I could probably make it on my own, but I like you kids.
