E92 - Actor W. Earl Brown: Scream, Deadwood, and More - Part 1

We’re excited to bring you the first half of our inspiring interview with W. Earl Brown, a very talented and prolific actor that you’ve seen as the main enforcer and right-hand man Dan Dority in HBO’s Deadwood, as Warren in There’s Something About Mary (of franks and beans fame!), as Kenny the news cameraman in Scream, and as the sheriff in Preacher, just to name a few of his works. He is also an amazing storyteller, screenwriter, producer, musician, and wonderful human being. Hear behind the scenes details about his work and inspirations, many from darker places, with stories and mentions about Lemmy from Motorhead, Elijah Wood, Wes Craven, Jamie Kennedy, Johnny Depp, Drew Barrymore, the Farrelly brothers, Ben Stiller, Chris Elliott, David Milch, Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Cusak, Chris Farley, Timothy Olyphant, Steve Earle, Townes Van Zandt and more. We learn his backstory from Kentucky to Chicago to LA, his trajectory in successful films and series, his advice to new actors, and his personal, current, and upcoming projects like Bloodworth and Dad Band.  If you are a fan of comedy, horror, or westerns, or a fan of rock, metal, or country music, you will find inspiration in this episode, full of wonderful nuggets of wisdom and vulnerability from the perspective of a seasoned actor, husband, father, and friend.
