Bruce Greenwood to Play Mike Sokolowski
Veteran Hollywood actor Bruce Greenwood has signed to play Mike Sokolowski (based on the real life person), the immigrant everyman at the centre of the Strike! story.
In a Hollywood career that spans four decades, Canada’s Bruce Greenwood is a Screen Actors Guild-nominated actor, singer and musician with a list of over one hundred movie and TV credits that includes blockbusters like Star Trek and National Treasure, as well as the Agoyan classics The Sweet Hereafter and Ararat. Bruce is currently starring in the Fox TV drama, The Resident.
Says Greenwood, “It’s not often you get the chance to work on a project that has a contemporary resonance this specific – the fate of the unions here in North America in last twenty years, and more recently the xenophobia and protectionism that has claimed so much of the national conversation. It reminds me that ground zero for a movement, for change, can be anywhere. Without those who are willing to take a step further than the rest, without those who are willing to take great risks, we might be living lives of quiet oppression. Are we?”
