Angel Foe’s Tattoo Secret by Daniel R. Coleridge
Last month on Angel, Eve freaked us out by crawling into bed with none other than Lindsey McDonald! The evil Wolfram & Hart lawyer was MIA until the "Destiny" episode, which revealed him as her secret lover. Who knew Christian Kane, who plays Lindsey, was so tattooed and muscular? "I’ve been off the show for two and a half years, man," he tells TV Guide Online. "I had some time to hit the gym."
By the way, although Kane does have tattoos of his own, the tats we’ve seen onscreen are fake. According to a setside source, they represent a code which Angel’s gang will decipher in the show’s 100th episode, "You’re Welcome," airing Feb. 4. Damn! Can’t we get a hint of their mysterious meaning before then? C’mon, Christian, hook us up...
"I know what the tats mean," Kane admits. "I just can’t tell you! ’Cause then, I’d have to kill you. And if I did tell, then [Angel creator] Joss Whedon would probably kill me. It will all be revealed in that big episode."
Well, besides buffing up, what’s Kane been up to during his time away from Angel? "I’ve done six movies," he proudly points out. These include Secondhand Lions, Angelina Jolie’s Life Or Something Like It and Just Married with Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy. He’s currently filming Taxi, a comedy co-starring Queen Latifah.
And as if all that’s not enough to keep him busy, the 29-year-old actor’s band, Kane, has just signed a record deal with EMI Nashville. They’re currently recording their second album, but the first one - also entitled Kane - still is available through their website. "We’re a little country rock," he grins. "It’s like Lynyrd Skynyrd meets the Allman Brothers meets George Strait."
