‘Ah, that guy!’ – This is the thought that usually crosses the mind of the common movie watcher or occasional movie goer, when seeing a film starred or co-starred by Sam Rockwell, or one in which he has a supporting role. Generally underrated by the general public, and often by the industry Awards-givers, the character actor, however, represents all that is genuine in the fake landscape of the movie world.
They are the film lovers turned to storytellers, the cinematic surgeons turned to celluloid-art wizards, the ever curious souls turned to emotion sculptors. They are not concerned with making millions and neither thirst for the idolization of the masses. Their goal and drive is one and one only: Bringing the story to life, so other film lovers, as well as the public at large, can, for an average of 90 min. submerge into a parallel dimension brimming with possibilities, where they can either escape and trivialize their existence or better understand it, as well as be moved, inspired and even challenged by the infinite tapestry of other humans’ existence.
