At last weekend’s Monster-Mania convention in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, Fango got a chance to chat with actor Sean Patrick Flanery, who was there with his BOONDOCK SAINTS co-stars Norman Reedus and David Della Rocco. Flanery next hits the big screen in SAW 3D, and despite the usual cloud of secrecy hovering over this franchise entry, he spoke quite a bit about his experience on Jigsaw’s first dimensional adventure… READ MORE

Sean Patrick Flanery is an actor I’ve admired for a long time, who’s been working solidly in Hollywood for 20 plus years. I was lucky enough to sit down with him for well over an hour, poolside at the Grafton on Sunset Hotel in LA, to talk about his career.
The first thing I must say about Sean is how gracious and humble he is. We start off talking about Comic-Con and how he made his first appearance there to promote The Boondock Saints 2. He recalls how the place was raucous and it was clear he was quite overcome by all the ‘Con Craziness’. In particular, the feeling of being like Tom Cruise for the day – something he doesn’t experience very often, but embraced.
Its crazy to think the original Boondock Saints movie was… READ MORE

We caught up with actor Sean Patrick Flanery last week for a quick phone interview to talk about his latest star turn in the action-thriller Deadly Impact, which premiered on DVD last week from MGM/Fox. The film finds Flanery portraying a former law enforcer devastated by the killing of his wife who’s conscripted back into duty years later to capture the madman responsible for her murder. The killer is played by Joe Pantoliano… READ MORE Thanks, ~Wendy
The Saints Return…With a Vengeance – An Interview with Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery, and Their FansThursday, April 22nd, 2010
Ten years ago, director Troy Duffy went from just another LA bartender to Hollywood’s next big thing to sleeping one off on someone else’s floor. His script for The Boondock Saints was hot, attracting the backing of the Weinsteins with names like Ewan McGregor and Stephen Dorff up for parts. Then, depending on who you hear the story from (former friends, emphasis on the “former”, chronicle their take in the 2003 documentary Overnight), Duffy pissed a lot of people off and Columbine happened; nobody wanted anything to do with his stylized and glorified vigilante movie anymore. It was probably a bit of both. Still, Duffy kept at it, managing a practically-straight-to-video release from Franchise Pictures (excepting a brief five screen release rumored to be paid out of his own pocket).
Critics panned it across the board… READ MORE
Deadly Impact is a rather sweet new drama just released by MGM on April 20th. They’ll be a full review next week or so. We talked to director Robert Kurtzman. Next we had a very special treat when we talked to Sean Patrick Flanery about Deadly Impact. Of course, we also touched upon Young Indiana Jones and Boondock Saints.

Sean Patrick Flanery in ‘The Dead Zone’Interview by Kayley Thomas
Sean Patrick Flanery – When I told Heidi I’d set up an interview with him for Pretty/Scary, I think her heart might have stopped momentarily. Mine may have skipped a beat too. There’s a lot to love. He had that cute and creepy thing going for him in Powder. He was simply adorable (I mean, very manly) as Young Indiana Jones. He had the honor of getting ganked by Christopher Walken in Suicide Kings. He’s brought us some serious (and not-so serious) scares in Demon Hunter, The Masters of Horror’s The Damned Thing, Kaw, and The Insatiable, as well as episodes of Charmed, The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone, and more recently, The Dead Zone. And he’s got some more sf/f and horror in the works: Deadly Impact hits DVD this April with Mongolian Death Worms and Scavengers slated for later in 2010. Plus, he’s pretty easy on the eyes and a sweet, funny guy… READ MORE
