You are no big star, even by indy rankings, yet have been in a few films.
How did this come about ?
I have always loved horror films, ever since I was a kid and saw Psycho. I
work at a video store and have access to all kinds of horror films, which I
love and I can't get enough of them. I love Argento also and a lot of
others. I subscribe to Fangoria. I love the horror films. So even though I do
not consider myself much of an actor, when this friend of mine I went to high
school with started her own company in Ohio and asked me to be in her movie, I
said I would do it.
This was Outside of Nowhere ?
Yeah. It was a weird film about vampires and ghosts, done by Gwendolyn [Click
here to read an article on Gwendolyn],
this model and indy filmmaker I went to high school with in Dover, Ohio. She
has made a sequel too, with no official title just yet, that I have played a
part in. She probably has it titled and ready to go by now, but I have not yet
seen the finished copy and have not gone to her webpage lately to see it.
So you do not make a living by acting ?
Not even close. I work at a video store at the mall and in piercing Pogada.
I hold down two real jobs.
Have you ever wanted to act full time ?
Not really. I didn't even show up at the premiere for the last movie I was
You have done some modeling ?
I got roped into doing that for Gwendolyn also as she is also a clothing
designer. I am no model either.
Luke gets killed in Museo Taurino
You are going to be entering the film world again in the summer of 2006 ?
Yeah. I am going to get killed in a film called Museo Taurino
What is it about ?
Not bullfighting in itself. This old guy is out to get revenge for the
death of his son in the ring. I play a writer who wrote the big book which
inspired his son to want to be a bullfighter and as such, the psychotic old
man believes I am responsible for his kid's dying. He lures me to his house in
order to give me a tour of his bullfighting museum and sets me up to be
And you are to die for sure in this ?
I am going to die bloody, but how bloody depends on the special effects
budget. This is going to be another low budget vehicle, believe me, but the
guy who wrote the book [Dale Pierce - Click
here for an interview with Dale Pierce] it is based on is slick and has some overseas
connections already. Even before it is shot, he is negotiating for French and
Spanish language releases, so this could fly, kind of like The Blair Witch
Why did you take this part ?
It is being shot close to where I live and it was a chance to get killed
bloody. I always wanted to die bloody in a film, like have my guts fucking
ripped out and my head cut off and zombies eating my intestines, though I
doubt they can afford a great big budget for this. I will be glad if they just
cover me in red stuff and call it blood. I don't know a goddamned thing about
bullfighting and do not even like it from what I know of it, as I like animals
more than people pretty much. I just know it is going to be bloody and I have
the part locked.
Have you seen the script ?
Yes and I do not have a great number of lines which is even better. The main
set for the film will be the scenes involving the killer, Don Guillermo and
his ranting. He has the hard part. It is like The Cask Of Amontillado, where
he rags on and on about what he is going to do and why. I think his actions in
the script will be so weird, people will not get bored.
Did you try for this role ?
They needed an older guy. It is pressing it for my character to announce he
is 30 and we will have him dwell on how much younger he looks. I would have
loved the role of the killer on one hand, but too many lines and too much
work. It is easier to be the victim, and like I said, I like the idea of dying
Do you have a MySpace or page for yourself ?
Not yet, but I will. In the meanwhile, http://www.myspace.com/museotaurino
covers the film project.
Do you think it will go well ?
Feeling lucky ?
any of my partnershops yourself
for more, better results ?
The links below
will take you
On indy shots you never know, but I think it will get done.
Any plans for afterward ?
I am hoping this does not make me a cult hero as I do not really want the
attention. If I wanted to be a movie star I would rather be a porn star.
You are serious ?
Have you ever investigated the possibility ?
I have thought of it.
But in the meantime, Museo Taurino
will do ?
Yes. I just wish I would have gotten to fuck someone in it before dying,
like in the teen slasher films ... no such luck.
Anything else to touch on ?
Thanks for the interview !
