DREDD

KARL URBAN (Dredd) is a long-time Judge Dredd fan who, like screenwriter Alex Garland, has followed him since his youth – and relished the chance to bring his fascination with the steely character to a physically and emotionally challenging performance from within Dredd's signature helmet.

Urban is best known for vibrant roles in two of recent cinema's biggest action blockbusters: playing Eomer, a bold leader from the kingdom of Rohan in the second and third installments of Peter Jackson's Academy Award -winning THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY; and portraying the iconic Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy in J.J. Abram's acclaimed 2009 reboot of STAR TREK. He also brought to life the villainous Russian assassin Kirill threatening Matt Damon in Paul Greengrass's THE BOURNE SUPREMACY.

Born in Wellington, New Zealand, Urban made his feature film debut in HEAVEN, then garnered critical notice in the fantastical comedy THE PRICE OF MILK, the film that spurred Peter Jackson to offer Urban his role in THE LORD OF THE RINGS.

His films also include the sci-fi thrillers THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK, the crime drama OUT OF THE BLUE, for which he won a New Zealand Film and Television Award, and the 2010 action comedy RED, in which he starred opposite Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and Morgan Freeman. He was most recently seen as the vampire Black Hat in PRIEST 3D.

On the heels of playing Dredd, Urban will switch gears and next reprise the role of Dr. McCoy in the forthcoming untitled STAR TREK sequel, due in 2013.
