We’re joined on the Starline by an actor, writer, musician and producer. He has an irrational fear of people singing at him and his latest film “The Enormity of Life” is on digital video on demand now. We welcome either Franklin or Bash, I could never figure out who is who Actor Breckin Meyer.
Breckin, let’s go Beyond the Mic. You’ve written for comedy and done countless movies. “The Enormity of Life” tackles family issues, PTSD, suicide, mass shootings and humanity. As executive producer this project was important to you but why?
“The Enormity of Life” tackles such dark topics yet still drops in humor like a scene ordering at the fast food restaurant. How hard was it seeing the 1st cut of the movie where you don’t want it to be too comedic but you had to drop some levity in?
