This past weekend, I moderated two Q&As with "Hesher" writer / director Spencer Susser and star Devin Brochu at the AMC Broadway in Santa Monica and at my favorite place on Earth, ArcLight Hollywood, directly following screenings of the film. I'd like to thank Spencer, Devin and everyone who came out to these two events! Go see "Hesher!" The movie stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the title character, alongside Brochu, Rainn Wilson ("The Office"), Natalie Portman and the great Piper Laurie ("Carrie").
