Cody Banks Returns Mummy to Multiplex

Arnold Vosloo has high hopes for the spy-kid comedy Agent Cody Banks (hitting theaters March 21), in which he plays a Mohawked villain opposite Malcolm in the Middle's Frankie Muniz and Hilary Duff (Lizzie McGuire). But the down-to-earth South African actor — best known to Stateside audiences as the title monster in The Mummy and its sequel — has no delusions of Oscar. "It's not aspiring to be The Hours or Gangs of New York," he says. "It's the kind of movie where you get a big ol' vat

Arnold Vosloo has high hopes for the spy-kid comedy Agent Cody Banks (hitting theaters March 21), in which he plays a Mohawked villain opposite Malcolm in the Middle's Frankie Muniz and Hilary Duff (Lizzie McGuire). But the down-to-earth South African actor — best known to Stateside audiences as the title monster in The Mummy and its sequel — has no delusions of Oscar.

"It's not aspiring to be The Hours or Gangs of New York," he says. "It's the kind of movie where you get a big ol' vat of popcorn and yell at the screen — no bull, like The Mummy."

Speaking of which, even while bringing to life more tales from the crypt as tomb-raiding tough guy Vincent on the adventure show Veritas: The Quest (ABC, Mondays, 8 pm/ET), Vosloo is looking forward to baldly going back to Egypt for another installment in the Mummy series.

"I'm sure [writer-director] Stephen Sommers will come up with something cool and ask me to return," he says. "Maybe next time [Imhotep] will run around New York in contemporary times hailing taxis. Who knows?"
