In 1997, in spite of his lack of experience in dramatic roles, Bana was approached by director Andrew Dominik to appear in the film Chopper (2000), a biographical film based on the life of infamous Australian criminal Chopper Read.

Dominik had been working on the project for five years, but was unable to find an actor to portray Read.

Bana shed the weight he had gained for Chopper and began an exercise regimen months before filming began.

He also trained with Delta Force operators at Fort Bragg, learning to fire weapons and clear rooms.

In spite of the film's limited release outside of Australia, Bana's performance received positive reviews.

The film was an international success, grossing US4 million, with US3 million in the US.

After the critical disappointment of Hulk and Troy, critics questioned Bana's bankability in big-budget films.

In school, he mimicked his teachers as a means to get out of trouble.

However, he did not seriously consider a career in the performing arts until 1991 when he was persuaded to try comedy while working as a barman at Melbourne's Castle Hotel.
