John Savage
John Savage burst onto the scene in 1978 with his extraordinary performance in the Oscar-winning Best Picture film, "The Deer Hunter." Relatively unknown to a wide audience, he was cast as Steven working alongside Robert DeNiro, Christopher Walken, Meryl Streep and Michael Cazals to create Michael Cimino's deeply haunting masterpiece.  Around the same time his vocal talents landed him the leading role in a movie-musical, that would become the generation-defining anthem, "Hair."   Soon followed by the film adaptation of Joseph Wambaugh's "The Onion Field" and a role as a suicide survivor in Richard Donner's "Inside Moves." John was again garnered Kudos as an outstanding actor of great range and diversity. He was nominated for Best Actor-Foreign for his work in "The Amateur."   


John's portrayal of Jake Williams’ transition from self-serving blues star to selfless father is already stirring discussions on the set.  His support for our indie endeavors, his tireless energy, good humor and giving nature inspired us all and made our complicated tasks seem easier. We were all thrilled to have had John Savage on board as our leading man.
