Edwards Plays Brains For His Kids

Actor ANTHONY EDWARDS only agreed to star in the new THUNDERBIRDS movie to please his four children.

The former ER star plays BRAINS HACKENBACKER in the blockbuster live-action version of the sixties puppet adventures.

Edwards explains, "Thunderbirds is really important to me so that my kids can be proud of their dad. I don't know if it's necessarily a good career move, but I've never been interested in that.

"People say to me, 'Oh, George Clooney became a big movie star from ER, and you didn't.' I guess I've failed, then. But that was never my goal."
