Sam Elliott: Sundance Film ‘The Hero’ Is Opportunity I’ll Never Have Again

Sam Elliott described his Sundance drama “The Hero” as an opportunity that he’s never had before and will likely never have again.

“I’ve never had anyone write anything for me,” he said. “It has all the colors that one could hope for and it’s an opportunity to really stick my neck out after doing 50 years of maybe a lot of one-note stuff.”

Director and writer Brett Haley, and stars Nick Offerman,, Laura Prepon, and Katharine Ross were also at the Variety Studio presented by Orville Redenbacher’s.

    I saw it at Harkin theater in Grapevine. The power went off with only 10 minutes of the Movie left. We got free passes and all and we waited a half hour but no power so we got more passes and had to leave. My problem is I live a long way from there so how can I find out how it ended?? I love Sam and enjoyed the movie till then!!
