you are making quite a dent on the horror world
with roles in 4 new Creep Creepersin movies.
Let's start with your first film with him 'The
Corporate Cut Throat Massacre'.
How did you come about being cast as Bryan in
I don't know about all
that...but I certainly hope I will soon. Creep is
a fantastic director, a real visionary. His
wonderful wife/producing partner Nikki called me
and offered me the part. She said Bryan's
character was a smarmy, know-it-all sarcastic
prick. So I was perfect. I didn't know whether to
be grateful or offended.
I also want to hear
about 'Orgy of Blood'
- can you give me a teaser that is going to make
it irresistible to www.racksandrazors.com fans?
don't think I need to give you much of a teaser,
besides the title delivers what it promises.
People die. People have sex...sometimes while
covered in blood. You really can't go wrong with
You are also
playing Warrington in the two 'Final
Girl' movies. 'What is the
general premise of that and how does your
character fit into the proceedings?
I don't think I can tell you the premise. It's
something that has never been done in the history
of cinema, so naturally the plot is under wraps.
What I can say is that I get to play several
characters of opposing natures, and that makes me
very excited. I guess I can tell you that lots of
people die... because that's always awesome too.
In gruesome ways...and it's no 'Hostel' torture
porn rip off. I think it's important to go places
that haven't been explored in the horror/suspense
You gained a
lot of attention on 'The Janice
Dickinson Modeling Agency'.
Looking back what was the weirdest aspect of
being part of a reality TV show and what are your
overall feelings about doing it?
I guess the
weirdest aspect was not knowing it wasn't real. I
mean, I had never really modeled...I came to LA
straight from theatre school. It's a tough
struggle, and my bartender savings that I saved
in school were running out fast. Also the fact
that no agency would look at me without decent
credits kind of got me desperate. So I got this
opportunity, and said fuck it. I did it, and came
on the show expecting nice people, just happy to
be making money for standing around. I was wrong,
and I really got blindsided by all the people
fucking with me for camera time. I never once
tried to start issues to get more exposure, funny
enough; I ended up on every episode. I don't
regret it, but later on some late night talk show
hosts are going to have a lot of fun at my
expense. We'll put it that way. They have a lot
of embarrassing clips to choose from.
Do you have
any other upcoming projects you want the
racksandrazors readers to know about?
obligatory self-promotion portion of the
interview. Well, you can just IMDB me if you're
curious what I'm up to. I don't know why you
would be, though. I just did a co-star on
'90210'. I also was doing sketch work for the
Jimmy Kimmel...but I'm blacklisted on that show
now. I guess I inadvertently offended a producer
of the show by referring to my taint. So much for
comedy. I also just finished playing an Air Force
Staff Sergeant in Afghanistan in the film USAF.
It was done by Combat Films...they are an awesome
group of guys. I was the only one on set who
wasn't ex-military. That was a little
werewolves, zombies, witches, creatures, aliens,
telemarketers...what does it for you horrorwise
Chandler and why?
doesn't matter what the creature is. It's about
the concept, the director, the cast, and doing
something original. I would say I'm sick of
vampire BS, but 'Daybreakers' looks awesome.
After seeing Willem Dafoe's performance in
Anti-Christ that man could take a shit and I'd
buy a ticket to watch it.
What was the
first movie to scare the shit out of you?
original 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' . I was too
young to handle the macabre...and it seriously
messed my head up. Also, I saw 'Jaws' on
mushrooms once...and let me tell you, do NOT do
And what was
the last horror movie you saw that really annoyed
Body' was like being punched in the face and
testicles at once. What the hell happened there?
we're pulling into the Chandler Maness Drive In.
What three horror flicks are on the triple bill
for tonight and what goodies are they going to be
serving up at the concession stand?
to represent different factions of horror. 1)
'The Descent' - Neil Marshall. I was scared
shitless before the creatures even showed up.
Marshall is the man. 2) 'Audition' - If you don't
know about this film, you should stop reading
this interview and go rent it. Then you'll
understand Hollywood's hard-on for JHorror. 3)
'Dawn of the Dead' - Original Romero. This was my
favorite Romero film...closely followed by 'Day
of the Dead'. Zombies in a mall...nuff said. At
the concession stand? I dunno...Pabst Blue Ribbon
and Triscuits. Maybe diet sodas for the AA
members. If I was playing 'Jaws' I'd have
mushrooms for everyone.
What is your
favorite horror flick death scene?
to when Paris Hilton gets a pole through the face
in 'House of Wax'. It was an oddly rewarding
experience for me. My favorite non-death torture
was the scene in 'Captivity' where Elisha
Cuthbert awakens from being kidnapped strapped to
a chair...and then is forced to chug blended
human chunks in a funnel. I'd imagine if
cannibals had fraternities, they would have
similar rituals. The movie sucked, but damn that
scene was sickening.
best Halloween costume you ever had?
was 16, I grew my hair long for an entire year to
be 'The Crow' for Halloween. I shit you not, that
was the only reason.
you in real life?
and failure. Not necessarily in that order.
Sharks because they are ferocious and you are
literally at their mercy in the ocean. Imagine
you're floating around, and a Great White comes
up and bites you in half...salt water starts
pouring into the wounds as your blood gushes out.
You flop around until he comes to finish you off.
Failure to me is not being in/making movies. That
would really suck.
