The Unsung Hero of Doctor Strange and Some of His Best Roles
If you don’t know the name Scott Adkins firsthand, it isn’t surprising, but you should. An oft unrecognized action star who has been in far more films than you know, Adkins is also one of the (lesser-known) stars in the upcoming Marvel opus, Dr. Strange. Though Dr. Strange is filled with award winning thespians, a good friend and fellow writer Steven Brinn wrote a piece about Scott Adkins and how he just may end up being the unsung hero of the film.
Over the past decade he has become one of the more recognizable names on the direct to video circuit. First doing extra work on UK television he would make his big screen debut in the Jackie Chan film The Accidental Spy. Since then he has gone from a generic henchman to the main lead working with action legends like Jean Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Jason Statham and Jet Li. With his first appearance in a proper Marvel movie approaching (let’s all forget X-Men Origins: Wolverine ever happened) lets take a look at 9 of his best action scenes.
It gives some great insight into a lesser known actor who just might surprise you with his presence and action chops. Check out the rest of the article here and follow Steven on Twitter over here, right after you follow me and this site, too.
