"Hesher" Interviews


I can't recommend this movie enough. I've been describing it as a mix of "Bad Santa," "Fight Club," "Beavis & Butthead" and some sort of dark indie family drama... Starring CLIFF BURTON (RIP) of Metallica. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays "Hesher," a near-mystical like character who invades the lives of a grieving family, which includes Rainn Wilson. Check out my interviews with Gordon-Levitt, Wilson and writer / director Spencer Susser BY CLICKING HERE. Metallica, of course, is among the many things we discussed.
