I suspect Neil Hopkins might see himself as a man THISCLOSE to a career breakthrough.
He's also had recurring roles on HBO?s ?Big Love? and the Starz series, ?Crash,? and played the long-lost brother of Dr. McNamara on FX?s ?Nip/Tuck.?
Today, he?s eagerly awaiting the Nov. 12 opening of his new movie, Skyline, which stars Eric Balfour, co-star of Syfy?s hit paranormal series ?Haven,? and Donald Faison, long time star of the ABC sitcom, ?Scrubs. (Both of whom, I might add, have been Mr. Media guests in the past year.)
Skyline is one of those monster?and I do mean monster?sci-fi films that you look at and go, ?Oh, please be as good as you look!?
The trailer has flying saucers, enormous, nasty creatures, lots of shit blowing up?add a few beautiful women losing their clothes and what more do we need for two hours? entertainment, anyway?

NEIL HOPKINS audio excerpt: "They had written all these different lyrics for the song; 'You All Everybody' was just the refrain... I thought part of the reason they cast me was because clearly I could sing like a rock star. Then I got to Hawaii and they already had it recorded so we could just lip sync to the playback. When I finally saw it, I thought I guess I'm really not singing on it."
