AUSTIN FILM FESTIVAL 2010
By Dave Campbell | November 4, 2010
On Saturday October 23rd, Dax Shepard came to Austin, TX, with his latest film Brother’s Justice for the Austin Film Festival 2010. Dax not only stars in the film but he also makes his directorial debut, splitting the duty with co-director David Palmer.
With the help of his buddy, producer Nate Tuck, and motivated by Box Office statistics, actor Dax Shepard has made a decision to leave comedy to pursue his dream of becoming an international Martial Arts action star. Lacking any formal training, with no funding for his blockbuster script and facing rejection at every turn, Shepard shows that there is no obstacle too great for an iron will. Pulling Hollywood buddies into the mix, Shepard does not take ‘no’ for an answer, and gets banned from televised awards shows in the process.
I had the pleasure of sitting down with Dax Shepard the next morning to talk about Brother’s Justice, comedy vs. drama and his current role as Crosby Braverman, in NBC’s hit show Parenthood. Check out the video interview below:
I’m also happy to report that Brother’s Justice ended up taking home the Austin Film Festival Audience Award in the Comedy Vanguard category for 2010.
