Canadian actor Taylor Kitsch began his career as a model, signing with the agency IMG and moving to New York at the age of 21. As his career in front of the camera slowly but surely developed, Kitsch became a certified trainer and nutritionist. In 2006, his acting career had a breakthrough, and he was cast in the movies John Tucker Must Die and The Covenant, as well as the popular NBC series Friday Night Lights, a show based on the movie of the same name, about a small town in Texas where high-school football is among the most important things in life. He appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and had a major part in The Bang Bang Club in 2010. Two years later he would be the lead in a pair of big-budget action spectacles - the notorious misfire John Carter, and the board-game inspired Battleship. He also was in Oliver Stone's crime thriller Savages.

John Carter says: [Wakes up in the cave covered in a crust of dust] No, no, no. [Crawls to the medallion symbol carved into the cave wall, and places his hand] Barsoom, Barsoom.

Edgar Rice Burroughs says: [Reading aloud, and staring at Mars in the night sky] Like a fool I had thrown away my medallion. I am fifty million miles away from my true home, with no possible way to bridge the distance. Then I recalled Matai Shang, how he knew where I had come from. There must be a Thern presence on Earth. The cave was proof of that, I knew what I had to use the gold for. For ten bitter years I searched the world, for any mention of the Therns. I long suspected that the Therns were observing me. I could only trust myself. My searches were fruitless, for many years. Until a few months ago when I found it. That is why my sudden death occurred, and why you have been given everything. I need someone to guard my body on Earth, or my copy will die on Mars. The Therns my have already destroyed my body while you finish reading this last sentence.

John Carter says: You know Virginia?

Matai Shang says: Not as well as I should.

John Carter says: "Cut it out!" (To the "monster" Woola who thinks its a game to quickly be waiting for Carter at every turn in his attempt to escape.)

John Carter says: I opened my eyes upon a strange and weird landscape. I knew that I was on Mars; not once did I question either my sanity or my wakefulness.

You do not question the fact; neither did I.
