Actor Mark Metcalf made his reputation playing the "angry white man" as a tightly spun authority figure, most famously in National Lampoon's Animal House and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Now in his 70s, Mark examines his creative journey through theatre, film, tv, dance, and becoming a father in the short documentary film Character by Vera Brunner-Sung. The short documentary reveals Mark Metcalf's complexity beyond how the film and tv industry pigeon-holed him.
Here is a link to the Twisted Sister music video, I Wanna Rock, where Mark plays the character type he was hired to play in film and tv.
The hosts, Josh Hyde, talks about working with Bruce Lee's nephew for an Elephant Revival music video, his new published script - Los Espiritus, and reflects on the entertainment's industry habit to type cast all of the creative people, behind and in front of the camera.
