Aaron James Murphy, Latham Gaines, Daniel Sing & James Gaylyn in "The World's Fastest Indian" (2005)

Starring Hollywood legend Anthony Hopkins and filmed in New Zealand, "The World's Fastest Indian" features several PR alums. Aaron James Murphy (Sam, SPD) has a starring role in the film, where he portrays Tom, the neighbor of Hopkins' character, Burt Munro. The film is based on the true story of Munro, who broke the land-speed world record in 1967 using his hand-built 1920 Indian motorcycle. The bond of friendship between Tom & Burt is one of the film's main themes. Also appearing in the film is Latham Gaines (Mesogog/Dr. Anton Mercer, Dino Thunder) who plays a passport officer who interacts with Burt when he arrives in America. Ninja Storm guest star, Daniel Sing (Kanoi/Kiya Watanabe, Ninja Storm) also appears as Ken, a passenger aboard the ship that carries Munro to the United States. James Gaylyn (voice of Zeltrax, Dino Thunder) appears briefly as a customs official who directs Munro as he leaves the boat. PR alums Greg Johnson (voice of Mini Zord, Ninja Storm) and Charles Pierard (Mr. Bradley, Ninja Storm) are also featured in the film. A full zip of Aaron James Murphy's screencaps is available below.

Hey... this might be unrelated to the news, but I noticed that you've had nearly all the Ninja Storm rangers' actors up, with the exception of Adam Tuominen (Hunter). I saw a website about him involved in a theater production right now, it's called Two Gentlemen of Verona, by Mixed Salad Productions. If you go to the website you'll see some pics of him.

Thanks for the info. I'll check it out. Adam has not been excluded on purpose. I just haven't been able to get my hands on any film or tv appearances for him yet.
