Fango spoke to Brazilian-American athlete-turned-actor Raw Leiba about his upcoming genre flick FABLE: TEETH OF BEASTS. The actor stars in the Sean-Michael Argo-directed feature alongside busy indie-genre actresses Melantha Blackthorne and Seregon O’Dassey.
Leiba portrays Darius, who possesses supernatural powers and is the love interest of the ass-kicking Lilith Noir, played by the beautiful and buxom Blackthorne. She’s a freelance enforcer in a mythical city where she teams with a private detective to stop the spread of a new drug and a series of murders, confronting an ancient demon along the way. “Darius is a physical guy who just happens to be a warlock,” Leiba tells Fango. “Sean’s vision for Darius was that he not only have the powers of the occult but the body of a god.”
There is a love scene in the movie that Leiba describes as “Me and Melantha having fun. We got into that scene a bit, all for the sake of realism,” he says with a grin. “Melantha is an outstanding actress, and one of the best people I’ve worked with. This isn’t your typical blood-and-guts horror movie; it’s got a lot of twists, plenty of action and of course the blood, but it has a great storyline—a lot of ‘teeth,’ so to speak. Sean is a fantastic director, and made it easy for myself and Melantha to be ourselves.“
Leiba also co-stars in another upcoming supernatural thriller, Robert Stock’s THE ASCENSION, and in the soon-to-be-released Josh Shelov film THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST, in which he plays Jamal, the boy toy of Kate Mulgrew; that film also stars Neil Patrick Harris and Christopher McDonald. Rumors continue to swirl that Leiba will join fellow hunk Jason Momoa in the upcoming CONAN feature directed by Marcus Nispel, but the actor states, “You guys seem to know more about that than I do at this point. I need to get out more; I haven’t signed anything,” he adds, noting that he’s currently focusing on his role of Mick in THE DRIVER, a crime drama directed by Robert Rothbard and starring Heather Locklear, Abe Vigoda and Vincent Pastore.
