The "INXS: Never Tear Us Apart" miniseries preview was finally unveiled by Channel Seven in Australia. This is great news for fans of the INXS band that have been waiting patiently for the show to air.
The two-part miniseries will show the life of the band members in the INXS band, including lead singer Michael Hutchence, who was also one of the band's founding member, as well as their lyricist. It will document the rise and fall of the famous Australian rock band.
Michael Hutchence will be played by Aussie actor Luke Arnold, who tried to embody Hutchence as much as he can, even imitating his curly hair and voice. Luckily, he got the singing part down pat due to his similar experience with his own band Motaboat.
The rest of the cast of the "INXS: Never Tear Us Apart" miniseries include Hugh Sheridan who plays bass guitarist Garry Gary Beers and Alex Williams who plays Kirk Pengilly. Meanwhile, the Farriss brothers will be portrayed by Nicholas Masters, who plays Tim Farriss, Andy Ryan as Andrew Farriss and Ido Drent as Jon Farriss.
Of course, the story of the INXS band will not be complete without their manager Chris or CM Murphy, who will be played by Damon Herriman.
And, 2013 X Factor winner Samantha Jade was also cast as Hutchence's brief ex-lover Kylie Minogue.
The miniseries will strive to be as authentic as possible, even consulting with Murphy as well as the other INXS band members during pre-production.
"I've been spending a lot of time with the cast and I'm amazed. At times I actually thought Michael was there. It has been all forms of emotions for me - I'm very excited," Tim Farriss said.
Fans will be thrilled to know that the show will feature the band's original music.
The "INXS: Never Tear Us Apart" miniseries preview unveiled by Channel Seven certainly whetted the appetites of their die-hard fans. And with the inclusion of X Factor's Samantha Jade in the cast, fans of X Factor will surely tune in to see her in action.
