    He did a GREAT Aussie accent in Pacific Rim. I honestly thought he was Aussie!

  • Bismark

    I thought Taylor was black… Anyway I kinda picture him while reading, because he made a similar character in Season-1 of ‘Revenge’

  • S

    PERFECT casting! He was amazing in The Unit. Finally a casting decision about this movie that I’m happy with!

  • Nooooo!

    No no no no no no!!!!!!
    Max why would you join that stupid cast to play that human slave bodyguard middle-named Friday??? Why why why???
    Why would you stain your name by doing that sure-to-fail 50 piece of crap?
    What’s the producer De Luca whoever his name is with the dudes from Pacific Rim?? Is this their original plan that Raleigh Becket and Herc Hansen playing rich guy and his bodyguard?? WTF?
    Really Max?? With all the good ones you were in now you are doing this trashy movie? Doing the producer faver is not worth ruining your reputation!!
    Charlie will you save your Pacific Rim pal from the thing you ran from pleeeeease?

    He’s hotter than the grey brothers.

  • Jen

    the ONLY cast member they got right!! #WHATAJOKE

  • Q

    he will. NO doubt overshadow jamie!(yah yeah, jamie will get naked) but he will def be a scene steeler. jamie has presence in photos but this dude has way more presence on screen!

  • Ladyjan

    @Nooooo!: What you complaining about he is not going to be nude. He is Christian bodyguard, he never was nude. But that is one casting I agree with.

  • Jilian

    He could be the only reason I would watch that stupid movie. He’s way hotter than Christian Grey tbh. Of course Jamie is cute and pretty and all, but not really much of a sexual presence if you know what I mean. I can’t really imagine anyone saying to Jamie “now tie me up and **** me”. Max Martini on the other hand…. well…
