|First off Hawk I guess we need to get a visual.
Can you describe the room where you are answering
these questions for the www.racksandrazors.com readers?
I am on my laptop
out on the deck of my house in Florida. I am
under cover, but it is pouring outside. I can see
the ocean. Currently, my dog is licking my feet.
You're a sick sick man Hawk.
I want to hear
all about your work in the upcoming work in Steve
Oakley's 'Real Horror TV'.
Horror TV is a somewhat comedic spin of all your
favorite reality shows with lots of blood and
gore. It's definitely a thriller. It won't play
like a normal horror film. It has a Blair
Witch-esque reality TV spin to it in every scene.
I play Ace Wilson who is a typical Cali/Florida
beach bum surfer. He is just in the house to
score as much T&A as possible and get out
with as much $$$ as possible. He is definitely in
for quite a surprise when it comes to his
housemates and several other "guests".
real TV - that topic must hit a bit close to
home. You have a lot of experience in reality TV
-tell me about that.
cracked realty TV on the MTV show, Tough Enough
2. That is how I became a professional wrestler
today. I also made appearances on Blind Date, The
5th Wheel, Meet My Folks and Next Action Star.
With the exception of Tough Enough 2, I
participated on those shows strictly for the
intent of getting my name/face out there to as
many people as possible and acted like a
jackass/weirdo/goofball/crazy man the whole time
so that I would be memorable. You won't see me on
any reality shops again EVER unless it's The
Ultimate Fighter. I am a serious actor and do not
need any reality shows now for publicity.
cement your hunger for the spotlight?
was a child actor growing up and was Theatre Arts
major / Television-Film Production Minor in
college while playing football and ice hockey on
scholarship. The reality TV basically legitimized
my desire to be a "Professional"
entertainer...geeeez that makes me sound like a
I also want to
hear about your role in 'A Devil's
a young man who gets sucked into the realm of
Hell and comes back as a vicious demon (along
with others) who goes on the warpath to kill
everybody I see. That's was a lot of fun, but a
lot of work
Do you see a
lot more horror in your acting future?
I like to
spread myself out amongst drama, action, comedy,
(maybe a romantic comedy or two) but horror is
definitely a unique genre of film that has
survived the test of time and I would love to be
a part of it in the future.
Do you think
people who knew you as a kid are surprised by
your current quest for stardom?
think they are that surprised by the stardom as
much as they are surprised by the path I chose. I
had NFL and NHL written all over me as a kid.
exactly was the route you took from pro wrestler
all ready explained my background in film,
theatre, etc, but I was kind of discovered at Fox
Studios when they were casting for X-Men 2. I
nailed the role, but lost it due to political
nonsense because they were filming in
Canada...bastard CANUCKS...I'm kidding...sort
always your ultimate goal?
was always a "Reality" of mine growing
up, but I never believed I would be doing what I
am doing today when I was a child. Funny how life
Okay - we're
pulling in to the Hawk Younkins Drive In. What
three scare flicks are they going to featuring on
the triple bill and what goodies will they be
serving up at the concession stand?
montage of the best scenes from Freddy and Jason
Halloween (you can't beat the original baby!)
Richard Simmons video (because that will terrify
the &#^% out of anyone Ok...hmmm
"Aliens" because that was one
terrifying movie. I was a kid when I first saw it
and had nightmares for WEEKS! Food wise (Healthy
food) ---none of that normal crap they
serve...I'm sorry folks, but I am a pro athlete
and a health freak so you need to suffer with me.
Ok fat free ice cream, twizzlers, and popcorn are
What does it for you
horror wise -- vampires, zombies, werewolves,
demons, aliens, creatures, witches, psychos,
creatures, demons do it for me.... Michael Myers
is the only psycho that does it for me...hmm
wait, that sounded homoerotic...ummmm. Vampires
and zombies and all need to take a rest.
What makes you
go psycho in real life?
Bills, Flaky people who over promise and under
deliver. I go absolutely nuts...oh and protestors
of any kind.... SHUT THE #*@&$ UP and go back
to your job/school. Nobody cares and you're
blocking the flow of traffic!
you in real life?
scared of bees, wasps, hornets.... I know that
sounds pathetic, but I hate those bastards....
the bees make good honey though so they can stay.
Do you have
any other upcoming projects you would like to
tell the www.racksandrazors.com readers about?
Oakley and I will be doing another horror project
starting in July. Until then I will be filming a
movie (A BIG MOVIE), but mum is the word on that
for now.... I like surprises. Feel free to visit
my website www.hawkamania.com or my space page www.myspace.com/hawkamania any time!
