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 in.

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 (http://www.myspace.com/museotaurino).

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 killed.

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 Project.

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 on-screen.

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 ?

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 ?

Yes.

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 ?
 

No.

 

Thanks for the interview !
