Karl Urban plans around World Cup

Kiwi movie pin-up Karl Urban's Hollywood star is soaring. But he is keeping his feet on New Zealand rugby ground.

Urban – who has starred in blockbusters like Star Trek, The Lord of the Rings and The Bourne Supremacy – is such a fan of the All Blacks, he is planning next year's work schedule around the Rugby World Cup.

His performance in his latest big-budget film Red – alongside Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich – is earning rave reviews.

But while his agent is fielding a flood of offers for roles in upcoming productions, he said cheering on the All Blacks on home soil was his priority for mid to late 201

"My earliest memories are staying up with my dad watching the All Blacks or playing [rugby] with my mates," he told journalists in America.

"If I'm watching a game and the All Blacks lose, it's best if I'm not around anyone, because I'm in the foulest mood."

In Red, the 38-year-old New Zealander plays the role of William Cooper, a government agent tasked to eliminate retired CIA spies played by Willis, Mirren, Freeman and Malkovich.

One of the movie's show-stopping scenes is a brutal fight scene with action movie icon Willis. The pair spent almost three weeks working on the scene, with Urban watching Mixed Martial Arts films as inspiration.

He has also been signed up for a Star Trek sequel and a remake of Judge Dredd.

Despite becoming hot property in the States, Urban vowed never to forget his Kiwi roots.

"Like it or not, I've become a global citizen," he said. "The challenge is to maintain your cultural identity, especially back in your home country, where it's all too easy to be perceived as someone who ran off to Hollywood.

"So, while I may work internationally, I live in New Zealand and plan to always do so."

Urban said it had been a dream to work alongside Red's legends.

"There was such a huge collective amount of experience going into this project," he said.

"And it wasn't about anybody being the star – it's very much an ensemble piece. So it was a fantastic experience to collaborate with people of this calibre."
