A few summers ago my friend Eli Rarey (The Famous Joe Project, Hard Decisions) showed me a script he had written, and I instantly fell in love. It was about a gay guy living on his own after a break-up, and the exterminator who shows up to deal with an uncanny infestation. The story was melancholy and absurdly funny—and it tracked very neatly to where I was in my life at that moment. Now the short film that we made out of that awesome script, The Exterminator, is premiering this weekend at the Atlanta Shorts Fest.
In this episode I have the great pleasure to sit down with my Hard Decisions co-star, James Cerne.
Last year, as we labored lovingly to bring writer/director Eli Rarey‘s script for to life, I found my becoming increasingly fascinated; I’d known James for just about as long as I’ve lived in Los Angeles, but working side-by-side I quickly realized that I barely knew him at all.
