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

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

Sean Patrick Flanery isn’t hungry right now, but lunchtime couldn’t come any sooner. On this chilly afternoon in the heart of New York City, the world-renowned actor is strapped with a backpack on 8th Ave. walking down 45th St. There’s a cup of coffee in his right hand and he’ll need the caffeine because he has a long afternoon of chatting with the media to promote his latest flick The Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day, sequel to the cult classic The Boondock Saints, released ten years earlier.
Although the press day sounds exciting, the 44-year-old is looking forward to something else… READ MORE

“I’m coming soon… I’m coming soon… don’t move, don’t move… Oh my God, you moved! Ahhh Ahhh!”
Yes, this interview begins with a rather adolescent take on our site’s good name, and it ends with a laugh, so you know you’re dealing with a filmmaker who knows how to have a good time.
That filmmaker is Troy Duffy, who became a household name in Tinseltown when Miramax paid the Boston bartender $450,000 to write and direct his debut film with a budget of $15 million dollars, making him the kind of rags-to-riches success story the media revels in. That was 1997. Two years later, the film had been completed for less than half that budget and without the participation of Miramax, who had pulled out due to creative conflicts with Duffy. The independent distributor who purchased the movie The Boondock Saints barely released it in theaters and it marched solemnly to the direct-to-video graveyard.
Typically, this is where the Wikipedia entry ends, possibly with addendums like “Troy Duffy has not been interviewed since 1999, and currently works as a bartender in Boston.”
However, The Boondock Saints, like its main characters, was not a movie that simply lays down and dies and its director has not gone gentle into that good night. When “Saints” was… READ MORE
Born in Lake Charles, La. and raised in Sugar Land, Sean Patrick Flanery graduated from Dulles High School and attended the University of St. Thomas, where he fell in love with acting.
I talked to him about personal safety (he has a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu), his homecoming to Houston and his recently released movie, “The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day”.
29-95: When you come back to Houston, where do you go?
Sean Patrick Flanery: (without any hesitation) Luby’s. A close second is James Coney Island. I miss Luby’s. A lot.
29-95: There are no Luby’s in L.A.?
SPF: No. Nothing like it. I drive quite a bit. Sometimes I’ll take the 10 when I drive from L.A. and I know the first Luby’s is in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Coming back, it’s the last fucking Luby’s.
