INXS CASTYou’ll believe Luke Arnold is Michael Hutchence when Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS premieres on Seven next year.

He had all the sexy, alluring moves down pat when TV Tonight recently visited filming at the Esplanade Hotel in St. Kilda -doubling for the former Bombay Rock in Brusnwick.

Extras decked out in 80s attire were swaying to the sounds of the young band played by Alex Williams, Hugh Sheridan, Ido Drent, Andrew Ryan and Nicholas Masters. It was pretty evident the playful boys were revelling in being instant rock stars for the Shine Australia series, under the watch of director Daina Reid (Paper Giants, Howzat, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries).

Also on set were Damon Herriman as the band’s manager CM Murphy and Jane Harber as Hutchence’s girlfriend Michelle.

Word is Samantha Jade also impressed in her acting debut as Kylie Minogue.

The miniseries is still filming around Melbourne ahead of its screening on Seven next year.

    There is also a rumoured movie ‘Two Worlds Colliding’ as well as another project.
    Michael is in big demand.
    I hope this is good because of it’s pedigree & not a watered down version of his life.
