If you're reading this, I've probably already told you a little bit about Safety and that it's a feature film I'm attached to. I've most likely even shown you the demo trailer. But today, I'm happy to share a little bit more about it with you.
This film is going to be director Dan Glaser's second film. His first film, of course, being Pinching Penny. Safety was written by https://www.facebook.com/pages/Timothy-J-Meyer/274333942589878" target="_blank">Timothy J. Meyer who you (if you've seen "Penny") may remember as Murphy. Timothy has a great skill for writing, and I can attest to it after reading, not only multiple drafts of Safety, but many of his other works as well. And I must say, you should keep your eyes open for his first novel, Hull Damage.
Safety is a film about an aging ex-hitman whose violent past threatens to tear his family apart when his daughter-in-law falls into his former career as a contract killer. At the moment they're raising the funds for it - although (and I say this with crossed fingers) those should be in place soon. Raising money for movies is extremely difficult.
We came into some big news today - that being Timm Sharp, from HBO's Golden Globe nominated show Enlightened, is officially attached to play the character of Buzz, one of the lead roles in the film. If you get the chance, you should definitely check Enlightened out. It's available to stream on HBO Go. I enjoyed the first season quite a bit and I was happy to hear they got the thumbs up for a second season. Laura Dern won a Golden Globe for her performance in season 1 and the performances by her co stars are also very good. Timm gives a great performance as Dougie and makes a character that could easily fall to the wayside stand out as one of the most interesting characters on the show. I'm excited to be in the movie with him.
The character I'm attached to play is the supporting role of Nate. He's very different from Alex and I look forward to playing him. I like to take on characters that are very different from each other because I feel it makes me grow as an actor and doesn't confine me to one specific type. Getting comfortable can be dangerous.
That's all for now. I'll keep you all posted as the news comes.
Thanks for reading!
