Israel-born actor Oded Fehr has played many different types of roles in his 14-year career — a member of an ancient group of holy warriors in The Mummy, a male prostitute in Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, a terrorist in the Showtime series Sleeper Cell — but he admits that he's often offered the role of the villain: "I can't help it. I have a deep voice and I look like a bad guy. People think I'm a bad guy." Being typecast as a villain doesn't really bother Fehr, however, because he finds the role of a villain offers him more "opportunity" to "bring so many colors to the character."
Fehr will get the chance to play both hero and villain in his latest movie, Resident Evil: Extinction, his third movie in the 5-movie franchise based on the Capcom video game series. Fans of the series know that his character, Carlos Olivera, died in Resident Evil: Extinction, but just as actress Michelle Rodriguez's deceased character, Rain Ocampo, will return as "Good Rain and...Bad Rain", so too will Fehr get to play good and bad cloned versions of Carlos Olivera in Retribution. In a recent roundtable interview in support of the movie, Fehr discussed his "really nice death scene" in Extinction, his preference for playing villains, and once again working with the "kid", writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson. what did Fehr say? >> Posted 07.16.12 by BrentJS
