Lincoln Road Sci-Fi Film Festival to Feature Guy Pierce Film

As plans for next year's Sci-Fi Film Festival on Miami Beach's Lincoln Road continue to develop, organizers tell us that the Guy Pearce film "LOCKOUT" is being considered for screening. Pierce recently starred in "TRAITOR" alongside Don Cheadle and has a full roster of memorable roles to his credit.

Born in Cambridgeshire England and raised in Australia, Pierce studied art and drama in school and performed in many student productions before landing a role on a popular Australian soap opera called "Neighbours" in the late 1980s. His breakthrough performance alongside Terrence Stamp in the film adaptation of "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" led to notable roles in "L.A. Confidential," "Memento," "The Time Machine," and the Academy Award-winning war pic "The Hurt Locker."

Pierce's performances "Traitor" and "Lockout" soon followed, though many new viewers finally took notice of the actor's famously chiseled features in HBO's 5-part miniseries remake of "Mildred Pierce" for which he won an Emmy at the 63rd Annual Awards Ceremony in 2011. The Aussie heartthrob was also nominated for a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award for his portrayal of Monty Beragon in the popular cable television presentation.

While Sci-Fi fans may not have tuned in to watch the camp classic on HBO, they no doubt rejoiced when Guy Pierce went on to star as Peter Weyland in Ridley Scott's "Prometheus," the epic big budget deep space saga billed as a prequel to the blockbuster "Aliens" film franchise. He was also tapped by eager producers to appear in Marvel Comic's "Iron Man 3" as Aldrich Killian alongside film stars Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow and his friend and "Traitor" co-star Don Cheadle.
