Firass Dirani on "Underbelly: The Golden Mile" - 7 (2010)

Firass Dirani (Nick/Bowen, Mystic Force) continued his starring role as club owner, John Ibrahim, on "Underbelly: The Golden Mile" in the show's tenth episode. Dirani appeared in two extended scenes of the episode titled, "Hurt on Duty." Dirani's character finds himself being bullied by one of his employees, Harry "Hammer" Hammoud, who has a major drug problem. He asks Ibrahim for an advance on his pay, without giving a reason. Ibrahim refuses to change the way he handles money within his organization. When Harry takes the cash from one of Ibrahim's sources anyway, John confronts Hammer who refuses to budge on the issue, calling Ibrahim's power into question. This almost leads to a fistfight between the two in the local gym, until they are pulled apart, stopping the violence. It would prove to be another incident in the rising loss of order on The Golden Mile.
