The Return of Mike Mitchell

The star of previous Stirton Productions feature The Planet, is to return for a role in the latest movie, One Day Removals. Mike (2 times holder of the World Fitness Federation Mr Universe title and all round nice bloke) is to appear in a pivotal supporting role scheduled for filming next week.

Mike's previous part as mercenary captain, Joe Morgan, meant he got to run around in combat gear and shoot huge plastic guns (he also got to kick me around the LZ, ooh er!). This time he'll be wearing a suit and laying down the law on our hapless removal men. We're going to need a bigger suit!

He has recently finished filming some episodes of UK countryside soap, 'Emmerdale' and hopes that he may have the opportunity to expand the role. All of us here at Stirton Towers wish him the best of luck with that and look forward to working with him again next week.

Here's a couple of shots of Mike being all big and stuff. Yay Mike.

My arms used to be thaat big...but then I woke up and realized I was having a dream. How tall is thaat guy? If he were nine feet he could be our monster and we wouldn't need any CG.

Mike's a beefy bloke, but he's shorter than me - he's about 5'8".

Perfect size for a military type as he was an officer in the special forces (in real life not the movie).

I'd be a freak/giant next to him at 6 ft 7 in.

Your beard is taller than me!

My beard is taller than a lot of people. When I'm not teaching, making movies or doing art, I work with a thater troupe of handicapped (special needs for the politically corect) children and young adults. They video taped our show and I was so ridiculously enormous next to those kids...it was frightneing to behold.

Hi Allen, I think you suffer from the same typing defect I have. Dogs have better spelling than me.

Lauren, thanks for dropping by, I thought your work was really cool so I'll link if that's ok. Lots of luck with your career.

One of the problems is the keyboard is so small and I have "Shrek-like" hands.

We have a guy in our office nicknamed Shrek. He really looks like him and being Scottish makes it even funnier.

He doesn't have a donkey friend though. As far as we know.

I still say he'd be perfect to play Garth !! His arm width is like my waist ! :)
