Working with Bryan and Brad in The Infiltrator

What a pleasure working with Bryan and Brad. I play Barry Seal, he was a drug smuggler and DEA informant, kind of famous. Dennis Hopper did a movie about him. I put on 35 lbs (ca 15 kg) for the part.

Bryan Cranston and Michael ParéThe Infiltrator hits theaters everywhere on July 13th. Really a cool movie.

TRADED Now Playing

Dear friends,

I hope you enjoy TRADED, it was really fun to make.

I play a semi-retired gunfighter who has started a new life as a small farmer and rancher who is forced to adopt his old professional skills when my daughter is taken by “bad guys” and forced into prostitution.

It is a classic plot with many great supporting characters. Directed by my dear friend, the very talented Tim Woodward Jr.

I never thought I would get a chance to do a movie like this and hope to do more in this genre.

PS I killed Trace Adkins yesterday, he died well. – Clay Travis

Best Actor for 4GOT10

Hello All,
4GOT10 is the 5th movie I have done for Tim Woodward, Jr. And without question the best and favorite so far. I play a corrupted county sheriff who at the end of his career decides to end it dirty but, rich. I got a call from Tim asking if I ever wore a cowboy hat in a movie and he sent me the script and I fell in love with the role.
I hope you find it as fun to watch as it was to make.
 BurbankFF-001
PS
I won Best Actor for the role at the Burbank International Film Festival this year too!
I have at least two more finished and soon to be released, Abattoir, directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and The Infiltrator directed by Brad Furman.
Sincerely
Michael Paré

Working with Kurt Russell

I am working with Kurt Russell today! We first met at Joyce Selznick’s house a long long time ago, when Joyce brought me to Hollywood. It was great working with Kurt Russell on “Bone Tomahawk” a great western on the line of Lonesome Dove.

The Shelter

shelter002.fw

Hello everyone! The Shelter is a movie I made with John Fallon. John has been reviewing and critiquing films for about 20 years for and with Joblo.com this was his first time directing and he also wrote the screenplay.

The movie really is about how fragile and irrational we humans are. Betrayal, lies, deceit, lust, infidelity, selfishness, guilt and self loathing are the demonic forces at play. I seem to be helpless when confronted by these deadly sins and peoples reactions to my weakness is far from logical but motivated by their own demons.

From the very beginning this project was a work of passion on Johns part and once I read it I realized it would have to be on my part also. His production staff and his crew ‘the Holbrooks,’ were all very inspired too. I can’t wait to see the trailer which should be online soon.

How Sweet It Is opens May 10

I have done a musical comedy with Joe Piscopo and Paul Sorvino. HOW SWEET IT IS is the title and is directed by Brian Herzlinger and produced by Suzanne DeLaurentiis, the same who produced the movie I did with Rod Steiger, A MONTH OF SUNDAYS. My character is Mike Sorino. I play son of Paul Sorvino. Paul is a mafia Don, Joe Piscopo is a down and out producer who owes my father gambling money. When Paul finds out who Joe is he forces him to produce a show for him.

SEA TREMORS (Amphibious 3D) is going theatrical in JAPAN

Thank you Comstock for releasing Sea Tremors all across Japan.

This was a real adventure in film making. Three months we were in Indonesia, two months in Jakarta and one month in a small village on the coast where we could see Krakatoa the famous active volcano in the near distance. There was even an earth quake that through me out of bed one morning. I thought I was in a nightmare or hallucinating.

I hope all of our friends in Japan enjoy the film, it is really a fun traditional monster movie where an ancient breed of sea creature is released from a fossilized sea cavern by the underwater earth quake, that crossed with stone age magic makes for a fun story.
