As tipped by TV Tonight, Nine rolled out its first glimpse of Lachy Hulme as Kerry Packer last night, making the most of its potentially big audience during The Voice grand final.
Nine had been keeping his likeness under wraps, although that was thwarted recently by a Sunday paper.
Hulme, best known for Offspring, Beaconsfield and The Hollowmen, plays the larger-then-life former Nine boss.
The two parter Howzat!: Kerry Packers’ War will air later this year.
Nine also aired a slick new promo for Big Brother which showed a flash mob interrupting a wedding and dancing behind Sonia Kruger -but some over-glam and over-dressed young attention-seekers were blocked from joining in the fun. Nine is doing its darndest to communicate that the show will be peopled by ordinary Aussies and not fame addicts.
Expect both promos to be replayed again tonight.
