Firass Dirani in "Killer Elite" (2011)

Birthday boy, Firass Dirani (Nick/Bowen, Mystic Force) played a supporting role in the action film "Killer Elite," which follows a retired British special ops agent named Danny (played by Jason Statham), who is forced back into action when his mentor (played by Robert De Niro) is taken hostage by an exiled Arab warlord. The ransom for his return is for Danny to hunt down three assassins responsible for the deaths of the warlord's sons. Firass Dirani plays the Arab man's only remaining son, Bakhait. Dirani appears in several scenes, acting as an information messenger for his ill father, who wishes him to be able to return home after his death, but only if the assassins are killed so that he will be safe. Bakhait, however, has become accustomed to his life of international travel and security and has no wish to be sent back to his desert home. Dirani shares scenes with the film's three main stars, Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro.


"Killer Elite" is available on DVD
