The Life and Times of Temuera Morrison - First Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2013

From Jake the Muss to bounty hunter Jango Fett to talk show host, Temuera Morrison has played them all. In 2013 he played himself in this seven-part reality series, with cameras following over six months as he tried to revive his career. In this first episode, the easy-going actor has a birthday with his kids in hometown Rotorua, chats to his Hollywood agent about job possibilities from the rebirth of Star Wars, and faces up to learning an American accent. Later episodes saw him publicising hit film Mt Zion, and fielding an offer to direct.

Entertaining, good-hearted stuff, cut with an arch but sympathetic eye...
– Diana Wichtel reviews the show in The Listener, 14 November 2013
