Jim Parrack in ‘So You Want Michael Madsen?’ Gets DistributionA new documentary “So You Want Michael Madsen?” has just secured a distribution deal with Afterlight Pictures.  The film is scheduled for release in the Fall of 2011 and it includes an interview with True Blood’s Jim Parrack. 

“So You Want Michael Madsen?” profiles the need, journey and obsession of independent filmmakers to secure name talent for their films. The documentary includes exclusive interviews with Golden Globe and Emmy winning actors John Saxon (“Enter the Dragon”) and Holland Taylor (“Two and a Half Men”); also Doug Hutchison (“The Green Mile”), Paula Jai Parker (“Hustle and Flow”), Adrian Zmed (“T.J. Hooker”), Jim Parrack (“True Blood”), and of course Michael Madsen (“Reservoir Dogs”). The film has earned “Best Documentary – Las Vegas Film Festival” and “Golden Reel Award – Nevada Film Festival”.

The most rewarding part of this project was the realization that most actors value their craft and are hungry for quality content,” said director Stan Harrington. “Their reward comes from the satisfaction of expressing themselves through unique roles and not the compensation they receive for these roles.”

This behind the Hollywood curtain documentary offers something to filmmakers of every level,” said Zeke Flatten, President of Afterlight Pictures. “Stan’s approach humanizes celebrities and empowers filmmakers to go after the talent they desire for their films. It also provides the general audience with insight into how actors choose their projects.”
