Luke Arnold To Play Michael Hutchence

Aussie actor Luke Arnold (“Winners and Losers”) is in negotiations to play late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence in the upcoming two-part mini-series “Never Tear Us Apart: The INXS Story” on the Seven Network.

The four-hour saga traces the band’s rise and the aftermath of Hutchence’s death. Shooting begins in Melbourne later this year.

Arnold is presently playing young Long John Silver in the Michael Bay-produced “Treasure Island” prequel series “Black Sails” which premieres on Starz in early 2014.
