Very excited to announce that Martin Sacks has joined the cast of “The Fastest White man in the World” to play Peter Norman’s father George Norman. I am so excited by this. I have worked on Blue Heelers with Marty many years ago and his presence on screen is flawless. Having someone of Martin’s calibre playing such an important role in the film is so exiciting for everyone.

Having studied acting at the prestigious Stella Adler Acting School in New York, Martin has appeared in many varied film and television roles including the feature films ‘Emoh Ruo’, ‘Slate, Wyn and Me’, ‘Love in Limbo’ with Russell Crowe, as well as the French film ‘LaTricheuse’ co-starring Kristen Scott Thomas.

In Australia, his television credits include the miniseries ‘Do or Die’, ‘Fields of Fire’, the telemovie ‘My Husband My Killer’ playing the lead role of Andrew Kalajzic & ABC telemovie “Cliffy”, playing Sid Young. It was the police drama ‘Blue Heelers’ that established Martin as one of Australia’s most talented actors, earning him five consecutive silver Logies for best actor.
I am so incredibly thrilled to have the opportunity of working with such an amazing actor and really great guy. He’s one of those people that really wants to help up and coming filmmakers like myself to shine. He is such an asset to the film.
