2013-04-04_0952TV Tonight hears actor Luke Arnold has been cast as Michael Hutchence in Seven’s two part mini-series Never Tear Us Apart: The INXS Story.

And it’s a very good likeness.

Luke Arnold has appeared in Winners and Losers, Lowdown, City Homicide, The Pacific and Rush. He also plays the lead role in Michael Bay’s Treasure Island prequel, Black Sails.

The first drama project from Shine Australia will trace INXS’ rise to glory, to the bitter aftermath of dealing with the loss of Hutchence.

Other roles to be portrayed include Jon, Tim and Andrew Farriss, Kirk Pengilly and Gary Beers, plus their manager Chris Murphy.

Shooting begins mid-year.

    I’ve only seen him in Winners & Losers, and I didn’t like the character that he played, but he should be good as Michael Hutchence.

    Yes! I’ve been waiting ages for Luke Arnold to finally get the recognition he deserves! He was in a great indie-horror titled “The Tunnel”. He was fantastic in it.
