If there is one thing that is true about Dubsism, it is that we have a fascination with all things Nutt. Now, thanks to the good people at Friends of the Program we have yet another example of how the call of the thespian runs in the Nutt bloodline.
When you are trying to put asses in seats at the Oxford Film Festival, you need star power…and when that star power is shirtless, showing a little lower man cleavage, and bleeding, well that’s all the better. Luckily for first time film maker Billy Chase Goforth, embarking on making the best 70′s style southern drive thru movie about bumbling bail enforcement agents you’ll see all year, the spawn of Houston Nutt was there to fit the billing. The Nutt family has a long tradition of acting excellence, so the casting, I’m sure, was a no brainer.
The call of the big screen in the Nutt clan shouldn’t come as a surprise; who could forget Houston Nutt as MacMurphy in “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” or his chilling performance role as Colonel Kurtz in the all-SEC remake of Apocalypse Now?
