Dimitri Thivaios from the internationally acclaimed electronic duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike has been tapped to joins Jean-Claude Van Damme in the action-packed thriller “The Bouncer”. The two Belgians have been close friends since Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s “The Hum”, which Van Damme starred in alongside Charlie Sheen. “The Bouncer” begins filming at the end of this month.
Van Damme had this to say when he heard the news that Dimitri was joining the cast of the film, “This is really f—king great! Love it! We’re going to have lots of fun!” See his Facebook post here.
This is Dimitri’s second casting in two months. In December, it was announced that he had been cast in George C. Romero’s film “Rise of the Living Dead”, the prequel to his father’s (George A. Romero) legendary horror film, “Night of the Living Dead”. Belgian fans will also get to see Dimitri & Mike Thivaios on the big screen when the film “Gangsta (Patser)” hits theatres January 24. The brothers star in the Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah-directed story, who has been named one of “10 Directors to Watch” by Variety.
With more exciting acting parts and projects coming up, he’s also even fallen in love with voice acting, after he took on the voice-over role for the Belgian version of Disney’s blockbuster “Big Hero 6” where his performance was so well received they asked him to reprise his role in the 2018 follow-up TV Series.
