Watching the black astronaut landing on the moon in the “Iron Sky” movie inspired this post.
Mr. Kirby, the black astronaut in “Iron Sky”
Iron Sky is a sci-fi action comedy, that tells the heroic story of German Nazis who, after being defeated in 1945, fled to the dark side of Moon, and now plan to return and conquer Earth. Let the invasion begin!
The film opens with an American mission landing on the Moon, lead by a black astronaut James Washington, who accidentally discovers a secret base on the dark side of Moon where Nazis have taken refuge after fleeing the Earth. Washington, actually just a male model on a publicity stunt for the US president, is taken captive, and the Moon Führer (the legendary Udo Kier) decides that the moment has come to return to Earth, and enact their plans for world domination.
Christopher Kirby: Moved to Australia in 1999/2000 to further pursue acting and has lived and worked there ever since. He has also acted in these films: The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and Star Wars Episode III-Revenge of the Sith, to name a few.
