This Egyptian actor will star in a Hollywood movie … as a criminal

The Egyptian star and former host of the Arab world‘s The Voice is acting in the film A Score to Settle, in which Cage plays a hitman seeking revenge against his former mob bosses after 22 years of wrongful imprisonment. 

Meanwhile, Karim has been cast as Jimmy the Dragon, a fearless killer and one of the hitman’s former bosses. 

Speaking to Western media, Karim expressed his excitement about performing with Cage and talked about his efforts to portray his character in the best way. 

“I did all my own stunt scenes… I just felt I wanted to do it. I felt like I wanted to have the whole experience,” he told the World Entertainment News Network.



When asked about the late Omar Sharif, Karim said he had befriended the legendary Egyptian actor prior to his death and the latter offered him some guidance.

“I told him I wanted to do characters away from stereotypes […] He told me what I should do and what I shouldn’t do from his own experience,” said Karim, adding that he hopes “to build bridges between Hollywood and the Middle East”.
