HE THREW Jason Moran off a boat in Underbelly I, and then sold the Moran brothers their first pill press before going on to really help them out by shooting the key witness for the prosecution in the head while she was sleeping next to her little boy in their lonely country house.
Remember that scene? We didn’t see the bad-a---biker pull the trigger, but Andy McPhee says it was definitely him.
Yes, it’s been a hectic career so far. McPhee’s also been a driver on The Overlander and mowed lawns, he was a pool life guard and a pro wrestler. When a hamburger chain needed a wrestler for a commercial, back when McPhee was ‘‘ 35 or 36 or something’’, he was ready.
He made a move to short films, there was a role as Yobbo No. 2 in Bad Boy Bubby, followed by speaking parts on TV (including playing a dog named Kosciusko in Wilfred), then parts in Wolf Creek and Animal Kingdom. Andy McPhee (left) as Keith McGee in
‘‘ I’ve been lucky,’’ McPhee says. ‘‘ I never did extra stuff.’’
Now McPhee finds himself playing Keith McGee in US drama Sons of Anarchy. Yes, another biker. He says just about everyone on Sons of Anarchy rides and he’s made friends on the show based on that alone.
‘‘ With the extras, the background guys, ’ cos they ride. They all ride to work,’’ he says.
Even the big, hot star of the series, Charlie Hunnam, rides to work, he says. But, the day of this interview, McPhee started shooting a twoepisode role he had landed on Criminal Minds.
He was happy about it for several reasons — it’s a hit network show, for one thing. ‘‘ And I didn’t have to audition for it,’’ he says.
He’s playing another Irishman, but this one sounds worse than Keith McGee.
‘‘ I have never been as bad, full of so much nastiness, cruelty and violence,’’ McPhee says.
