Tonight Academy Award nominee:
and Horror Movie Icon:
Joined Mark and Hannah for some spirited conversation and music tonight on the
Dark Mark Variety and Comedy Show
John Hawkes is someone who has been in so many big movies,
but says he can walk the street and go unnoticed much of the time.
He describes how he was able to stay awake while acting with Daniel Day-Lewis In Lincoln,
what it was like to be Nominated for an Oscar for his performance in Winter’s Bone
(wait until you hear the freebies he got),
How he sacrificed his body to play a man with polio in The Sessions and what it felt like to not be nominated for an Oscar for that performance after everyone thought he was a shoo in,
what took the Deadwood movie so long to finally happen,
what it was like to be on the set of Northern Exposure when he was starting out,
the Preconceptions of being an actor who also sings and so much more
Is known for A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 and 4 as well as the remake of I Spit on your Grave.
He talked about getting the script for I Spit on your Grave with a different title and the depths he went to to play such a despicable character.
He was a heavy metal loving teenager living in East LA when being an extra in an Afterschool Special led to being one of the Dream Warriors.
He recounts his crush on Patricia Arquette, how cool Laurence Fishburne was, how he passed out while being tongue tied by Freddy Kruger and being a teen heartthrob,
So much so that he was named one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood.
All that and Hanna Asked to Hear the Story of, Tune in its going to be a Great Show….
