Well, that’s not me, obviously. That’s good old Charles Bronson. But I wrote the cover story. “The Later Years Of The American Action Hero.” That’s me.
Paracinema is a brilliant movie magazine which covers a lot of the cool stuff you won’t often see in, say, Entertainment Weekly. You can tell from some of the other stories mentioned on that cover there (Bruce Lee, Sam Raimi, etc.).
My article is about the kind of movies that action stars make when they get old. Charles Bronson. Lee Marvin. Obviously Clint’s in there. But I get into the next generation after that too — Arnold, Stallone, those guys. And then I ponder what’s going to happen when the current crop starts getting some gray whiskers.
I think it’s one of the better things I’ve ever written. And I’m truly honored to be featured in this great magazine, in the midst of some truly special writers.
Paracinema is carried by many book stores and magazine stands, particularly in the cities. CLICK HERE for a list of the venues that have it in stock. If you don’t want to go looking for it, you can order the issue from the Paracinema website: CLICK HERE. The magazine costs a very reasonable $7, I think shipping is two dollars extra. I know in this day and age every dollar counts, so I don’t make the suggestion lightly, but even still, your support would mean a whole lot to me. If you know me personally, you know I’d do it for you.
Did I mention it’s super-fun? Satisfaction guaranteed.
As always, you can find me here, in your hearts, wherever truth and justice prevail, or at least on Twitter: @jonnyabomb
Thanks. Love you all. — JA.
