Neal McDonough

Neal McDonough has lined up a pair of features including Rogue's currently shooting remake of "The Hitcher."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, McDonough will play a lawman aiming to assist two wacky college kids (Sophia Bush and Zach Knighton) being terrorized by an evil hitchhiker (Sean Bean).

Dave Meyer is directing the Platinum Dunes production, set for an April 2007 release.

In addition, McDonough is also reportedly appearing in Ryan Little's untitled rugby movie, which co-stars Sean Faris. That project involves a rugby coach and his troubled son who end up on different sides at the national championships.

McDonough is best known to television viewers from his NBC series work on "Boomtown" and "Medical Investigation," as well as his co-starring role in the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers." His upcoming big screen work includes some high profile entries like "The Guardian," "88 Minutes" and "Flags of Our Fathers."
