Actor Anthony Edwards only agreed to star in the new Thunderbirds movie to please his four children.

The former ER star plays BRAINS HACKENBACKER in the blockbuster live-action version of the sixties puppet adventures.

Edwards explains, "Thunderbirds is really important to me so that my kids can be proud of their dad. I don't know if it's necessarily a good career move, but I've never been interested in that.

"People say to me, 'Oh, George Clooney became a big movie star from ER, and you didn't.' I guess I've failed, then. But that was never my goal."
