“I’m in my third or fourth mid-life crisis...I really related to this idea that you’re stuck. He’s not a bad guy, he just has terrible communication skills and I find that true of maybe men in general, but particularly Australian men. They’re not comfortable opening up. Acting is scary because it’s very self-revelatory, but you can always hide behind the fact it’s a character. I’ve often said it’s the cheapest therapy on earth because you get to work out all your angst and crap on screen.” Actor Anthony LaPaglia on his role in "A Month of Sundays"

LaPaglia starred as FBI agent Jack Malone in the successful television drama "Without a Trace". Since that series ended its run in 2009, LaPaglia has returned to his native Australia for a number of films, including "A Month of Sundays", and also the politically-charged television series "The Code".

In addition, LaPaglia starred in two excellent Australian films released in 2001; "The Bank", in which a family who was foreclosed upon gets their revenge, and "Lantana", which features outstanding performances from the entire cast including LaPaglia, Geoffrey Rush, and Barbara Hershey. Australian films continue to be among my favorites. Due to the Australian government's strong financial commitment, filmmakers can pursue a personal vision without being expected to generate hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office.

You can catch another Australian actor on American television in the coming weeks. Judy Davis is co-starring with Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange in FX's "Feud", which chronicles the making of cult favorite "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane". Davis plays gossip columnist Hedda Hopper in the series. Davis also co-stars with Kate Winslet in the Jocelyn Moorhouse film "The Dressmaker". Julia Blake, who plays Sarah in "A Month of Sundays', is also in the cast. "The Dressmaker" is available on DVD and Amazon Video.
