About the Film
In his directorial debut, acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch (Fargo, Zodiac) pays homage to the king of character actors, the prolific Harry Dean Stanton (Alien, Big Love). Stanton plays the titular role, a 90-year-old self-sufficient loner living in a desert town. Though in remarkable health, Lucky knows his number will eventually come up, but the lifelong atheist isn't quite ready to confront his mortality, prompting a thoughtful and entertaining journey of self-discovery.
About the Filmmaker
A native of Colorado, John Carroll Lynch landed his first major film role as 'Norm,' opposite Frances McDormand’s 'Marge,' in the Coen brothers’ Academy Award-winning Fargo while he was a member of the Guthrie Theater Acting Company in Minneapolis, MN. Since then, he has worked steadily in film, television and theater, playing an impressive range of characters -- If there’s one thing consistent about Lynch’s career, it’s the extreme diversity of the characters he plays and wide range of material he has worked on. He has done comedy, drama, and every other genre, from thriller and mystery to melodrama and horror. With over fifty film credits, Lynch has had the good fortune to be directed by Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, John Lee Hancock, Mark Ruffalo, Miguel Arteta, Pablo Lorrain Mick Jackson, Karyn Kusama, Albert Brooks and Seth Macfarlane, among others. On television, Lynch has appeared on many series; most notably, on American Horror Story as ’Twisty the Clown,' as well as The Walking Dead, Billions, Turn, Manhattan, The Americans, House of Lies, Carnivale, Body Of Proof, Big Love, From the Earth to the Moon, David E. Kelley's Brotherhood of Poland, NH and six seasons on The Drew Carey Show as Drew’s crossdressing brother ’Steve.' Lynch continues to pursue work in the theater. Highlights include the lead role of Eddie Carbone in Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge at the Guthrie, the original production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Dinner with Friends at South Coast Rep, Under the Blue Sky at the Geffen, and Beth Henley's world premiere, Ridiculous Fraud at New Jersey's McCarter Theater. This past fall, John was seen in The Founder opposite Michael Keaton and Jackie starring Natalie Portman. Also soon to be released, a lead role in Anything opposite Matt Bomer. John is honored to make his film directing debut with Lucky.
