Iranian of the day

June 15, 2004

In an interview actor and producer David K Zandi brought up Oliver Stones Alexander film, apparently he was asked to be Darius III, Shah of Persia and he auditioned for it, since he's Persian born and has major skills in sword fighting and is champion equestrian. But he decided to not do it, because he really wanted to be Darius for the one Baz Luhrmann is making with Leonardo DiCaprio and Nicole Kidman, he said he really was interested in what Baz and Dino De Laurentiis were doing with their project and it would be worth the risk in waiting. He said it would be one of the greatest epics to come out. He also confirmed that Stone's Alexander hired some Israeli model Raz Degan) to be their Persian King.
