Christian McKay as Grant Pierce

This week on our quick fire questions we have actor Christian McKay.  Christian has been in so much over the years including Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Poirot, Borgia and recently, Ron Howard's Rush.  Now he's set to star in another movie called Creditors.  You have the opportunity to get involved with the movie by backing their campaign over at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1913997996/creditors-the-film. They are giving away some great rewards depending on what you pledge, from badges all the way up to being a producer of the show and even a credited actor's position.

Watch this video below on the Kickstarter campaign for the movie Creditors.

"Creditors" is the story of a love triangle, which finds itself unraveled when an American painter, Freddie Lynch, whose career and marriage are in decline is approached by an admirer, Grant Pierce, in a secluded hotel on an island in England and eased into making sense of his troubled relationship with his wife, writer Chloe Fleury.
