Matthew Fox might be getting a little animated.
According to Variety, Fox is in talks to take the lead in the adaptation of the comic book “Billy Smoke.” He would play a hit man who seeks revenge after a botched job, and decides to rid the world of all assassins.
Though Fox’s small screen leading man status is red hot, as Lost’s Jack Shepard, he has failed to impress at the box office. His recent film credits include “Speed Racer” and “Vantage Point.”
Matthew Fox moved his family to the Pacific Island in order to film the hit TV show “Lost,” but now the actor is eager to move almost 3,000 miles to Oregon once the series finishes.
“I’ve been living in Hawaii for almost four years now, so it’s not really paradise any more, man. Throwing snowballs on a mountain is now paradise,” said Fox.
“We’re moving to Oregon. I want to be closer to my brothers and their children. We really want our kids to have tight first-cousin relationships. I want to enjoy fishing, hiking, skiing, mountains and fresh air.”
Although Fox does admit that living in Hawaii does have his perks and benefits.
“Hawaii has also been beneficial in that I really don’t like the whole paparazzi thing in my daily life. There are not a lot of paparazzi who want to do the 2,500-mile trek into the south Pacific for a shot of me walking on the beach.”
Fox has two children with his Italian wife Margherita Ronchi.
Is the man behind good guy doctor Jack Shephard really a bad boy?
“Lost” star Matthew Fox opened up about his history of misbehaving recently to Empire Magazine. “I break the law all the time!” he told the mag. “I’ve done plenty of illegal narcotics, but I think everyone knowingly breaks the law pretty often, don’t they? I can’t imagine living my life abiding by the law completely. That’d be tough to do.”
Fox says his wife shares in his habit of taking drugs. “My wife and I travelled to Jamaica 15 years ago. Oh God, it was a crazy trip! We stayed in this little bungalow out on the water, baked out of our minds for the first three days. We were just so stoned! And then we got sick and proceeded to continue to get stoned because that makes you feel better.”
Fox, 41, has two children.
