I can't see Blaine as an actor! He has nowhere near the persona of say an Orson Wells or a Ricky Jay (both magicians turned actors).
Among other things Wells was an Actor, Writer, Director, Producer, Magician and Artist. Ricky Jay can act good and has a great on screen presense. I just don't see these qualities in Blaine.
I can't picture the man in a screen role...what would he play?...he sure as heck isn't the comedy type (well maybe he is, considering his latest stunt ), or leading man type, nor does he have looks for a dramatic role, unless of course he played some sort of criminal role.
On the other hand he might fare well as bug-eyed slasher.
i heard i while back he was goning to make a movie about the life of a magician (wow big surprize
) with some big movie company
