Actor Malcolm Barrett would not be a name that many people had heard of before 2008. He had done his fair share of television work and had also appeared in the odd movie but he was still not a name known to many. Then in 2008 he appeared in the hit movie The Hurt Locker.
His name spread fast due to his impressive performance as Sergeant Foster in that movie and the film was such a success that Malcolm was bound to get more recognition for his acting abilities. He was also one of the stand out performers in the Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts flop Larry Crowne.
However, Malcolm Barrett is not yet a worldwide household name and this is a travesty that needs rectifying. Barrett has two more films heading your way in the next year but what he really needs is a blockbuster movie where he carries the lead role, so that people can see his full potential. Let’s hope he gets his big break soon.
