JAMIE DORNAN IN 'JADOTVILLE'
It really can't get hunkier than this: 'Deadline' reports today that TERRA NOVA and SONS OF LIBERTY star Jason O'Mara has joined THE FALL and NEW WORLDS star Jamie Dornan in JADOTVILLE! The movie will follow the 1961 siege of 150 UN Irish troops, led by Dornan's character, in the Congo after the murder of leader Patrice Lumumba by pro-western leader Moise Tshombe. His battalion held out against a force of 3,000 local troops led by French and Belgian mercenaries working for the mining companies. O’Mara will play Sgt. Jack “Sarge” Prendergast, Dornan’s right-hand man.
Jason O'Mara will also lead USA Networks' new series COMPLI- CATIONS, playing a disillusioned suburban ER doctor who finds his existence transformed when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting, saving a young boy’s life and killing one of his attackers.
