SAMANTHA Jade has almost been adopted as a long lost Minogue sister, while the original INXS band members were reportedly reduced to tears by the uncanny casting of Channel 7's hotly-anticipated telemovie, Never Tear Us Apart.

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO MICHAEL HUTCHENCE

The ultimate story of sex, drugs and rock'n roll, with a soundtrack to get you off the couch for some lounge room dancing, the two-part biopic looks set to launch the careers of leading man Luke Arnold (as Michael Hutchence) and the stunning roll call of young stars around him.

Arnold's profile has skyrocketed since scoring the INXS role, backing up with a break on US television in Black Sails, a TV adaptation of Treasure Island,lead by Transformers director Michael Bay.

Whether ladykiller rock star or swashbuckling pirate John Silver, Arnold oozes charisma on screen, but off it has tweeted about playing Hutchence: "still amazed and humbled that I got to tell this man's story."

Jade, who came to local fame after winning The X Factor, makes her acting debut as Minogue - an opportunity that surely won't be her last.

Even the music is charting again, with each Seven promo pushing sales for the band's classic Kick and greatest hits albums further up iTunes.

Now get to know the key players charged with recapturing the magic that was one of Australia's greatest rock exports and women frontman Michael Hutchence loved:

LUKE ARNOLD PLAYS MICHAEL HUTCHENCE

This WAAPA graduate has been a `gigging' actor on the small screen for almost a decade, but will break through as Michael Hutchence, and as John Silver in Michael Bay's Treasure Island adaptation Black Sails. The INXS singer was famously one of Australian music's most charismatic frontmen with a string of high-profile romances and a tragic end in what was either a suicide or a sex game gone horribly wrong in a Sydney hotel room in 1997.
