Continuing in our series on Marlin Briscoe and the movie in development of his life, we speak with stage, television, and film actor, John Beasley. John was gracious enough to speak with us about the film, about Marlins early life in football, and about his acting career. One of the three founders of West Omaha Films, LLC, John Beasley has been acting since his mid 40’s in such hits as the original Mighty Ducks, The Apostle (with Robert Duvall), Sum Of All Fears, and of course as Coach Warren in the hit Rudy.
Speaking with us, John gives us a glimpse into how an idea for a film project begins to develop into a motion picture. His knowledge of Hollywood, film making, and Marlin Briscoe himself was one of the deciding factors for Marlin Briscoe in turning over his story to WOF.
