Singer gives details on upcoming starring role.

NEWS SOURCE: Kevin Max, a report
January 7, 2008

Kevin Max Talented singer/songwriter/poet and actor, Kevin Max announced today further details about his acting gig in the upcoming indie film, The Imposter. Max writes...

"So... the countdown has begun for me.... next week monday I begin filming in Dalla/Ft. Worth... Don't know how I feel about that quite yet... But I am sure all will turn out well... some things that haven't been writ in the minimal press that is out there... I am to be a character named Johnny C (the last name is never given), in a band called Grand Design... Johnny is a bit of a rogue with an addiction problem... But he is a talented musician... and a good person underneath it all... and 'the heart' is the issue in this film... not many scripts I have seen that deal with Christian culture like this one... obviousy they chose me because I fit the 'rebel' status... But I think even more than that, I went on a journey that defines me... Johnny C does the same, and realizes the 'hard way' that he needs to Believe, instead of just singing the words... the basic script deals with his downward spiral out of the Christian music scene, and into an underworld of street thugs and drug dependency... many different cameo appearances by people along the way, try to help him, and subtley bring him to a bigger understanding of who he is... my favorite scene so far is his confrontation with his father, an inflated Evangelist type, who sees success and big numbers as the goal... it is very illuminating as to our times... I won't go too deep with the plot here, because I think Serendipitous Films might not appreciate it... But I will let you know that my friend Troy Baker (Commanche Moon- coming out on tv this Jan 8 with Val Kilmer and Karl Urban) is producing and acting... Russ Taff plays a small role that will, I am sure, be a much talked about scene... Kerry Livgren from the group Kansas plays a character named Proff, who is a music veteran type, giving advice to James, the other main band leader in Grand Design... James is also played by a Christian Music billboard name, but I will not let the cat out of the bag yet... Let's just say, he is the perfect, opposite end character to my Johnny C... and no it;s not Toby Mac... haha... more on this later, and probably a lot of blogging when I am inbetween set times... peace to all of you. KM"
