    Kevin Durand is a good actor. He seems to bring out the best in the character he is playing. …..and I still say he could kick “The Rock’s butt in the movie “Walking Tall” if he hadn’t got hit by that cedar wooden club first. I did feel bad for him when they purposely destroyed his truck in same movie.

    His playing of “Fet” in the series “The Strain” is one of the reasons I watch it each Sunday eve. I think he should be written into more of the general plots in this series. The writers better NOT kill him off, thousands of this series’s fans will be very upset…..including me of course. Kevin, I sincerely wish you continued much success in your future film endeavors…you have earned it and your natural talent in character role adaptation should move you into being Hollywood’s next big male star and producers will be standing in line for you.
    If you happen to read this…..remember, you heard it here first!
