* AwesomeDearBoy : Why he accepts most of his movie roles.



* FakeAmerican: Quite a few of his roles. [=McCoy=] especially has a flawless accent that is uncannily reminiscent of Creator/DeForestKelley.



* NamesTheSame : He's the actor from New Zealand. Not the World War I flying ace from Austria.
* OldShame : At a convention appearance, he half-joked that his favourite scene from ''Film/{{Doom}}'' was the end credits. When a fan mentioned that he liked the movie, Urban asked him if he had actually seen it.
* OneOfUs: Urban is a longtime fan of ''Franchise/StarWars'', ''Franchise/StarTrek'', ''Series/DoctorWho'', ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'', ''Franchise/BattlestarGalactica'', ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' and numerous video games.
** He named his child after Franchise/IndianaJones. Dedication.



* PlayingAgainstType: Known mostly for action roles, his casting as the comedic and (physically) [[SnarkToSnarkCombat non-combative]] Bones in ''Film/StarTrek'' was met with a resounding 'wtf?' Only to succeed at the role so well that he reduced Creator/LeonardNimoy to tears and left fans wondering if he had been possessed by the spirit of Creator/DeForestKelley himself. He was just that good.
* PromotedFanboy:
** On the set of ''Film/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'', he passed the time by playing ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' with Creator/VinDiesel, Creator/JudiDench and Creator/ThandieNewton.
** He's been a massive fan of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' since childhood and grew up watching reruns religiously. Creator/ChrisPine and Creator/ZacharyQuinto even have an anecdote about him playing with a toy Enterprise ship on a plane before being asked to put it away.
** He was a very big fan of ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' long before donning the iconic helmet, and his performance as the character has received considerable acclaim from fans of the comics. He's even campaigning for a sequel.



* RomanceOnTheSet : He met his wife on the set of ''Film/ThePrivateers''. She was his make up artist.
* StarMakingRole : As Éomer in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' or as [=McCoy=] in ''Film/StarTrek''.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen :
** He was briefly in the running to replace Creator/PierceBrosnan as Film/JamesBond, but was unable to attend the audition due to filming commitments.
** He was the original choice to play Kainan in ''Film/{{Outlander}}''. He dropped out when filming was delayed, and went on to make ''Pathfinder'' instead.



* YouLookFamiliar : He played Cupid and Julius Caesar in the Hercules and Xena universe. He also played Kor in ''Amazon High'', the pilot movie for a third series in the same universe that was never picked up.
