You know the mug, but can’t place the name… Character actors are the backbone of the movie industry, and author Scott Voisin wants you to get to know them personally in his latest tome, CHARACTER KINGS 2: HOLLYWOOD’S FAMILIAR FACES DISCUSS THE ART & BUSINESS OF ACTING (BearManorMedia).

Barry (CHRISTMAS EVIL, THE X FILES); Art LaFleur (THE BLOB, RAMPAGE, TRANCERS); James Karen (RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, POLTERGEIST); Jon Polito (THE CROW, TALE OF THE MUMMY, HIGHLANDER); Duane Whitaker (PULP FICTION, FEAST); Richard Riehl (HATCHET, TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D, HALLOWEEN II); plus many more to be announced.

The CHARACTER KINGS books are Voisin’s ongoing literary series featuring exclusive interviews with today’s most recognizable working actors. The insightful and entertaining conversations are filled with candid behind-the-scenes anecdotes and secrets for building and sustaining a successful career in Hollywood. GOREZONE contributor Tim Lucas says, “Character actors are a prized species, and Scott Voisin selects the cream of today’s crop. The actors regale us with some marvelous stories of blood, sweat and fate.”
