Named one of Wicked Channel's Top 25 Films of 2014, Buddy Hutchins features Jamie Kennedy (Scream, TVs Ghost Whisperer) as you've never seen him before!
Buddy Hutchins (Kennedy) is just a regular guy doing his best to support a wife and two kids. A recovering alcoholic, Buddy hasn't had a drink for the better part of a year, but it turns out the only reward for his good behavior is a failing business and a cheating wife. Throw in a ruthless bounty hunter and an hot-tempered ex, and Buddy's already short fuse is about to blow. Pushed over the edge and armed with a chainsaw, Buddy Hutchins is out for blood.
Starring Jamie Kennedy (Scream, Tremors 5, Son of the Mask), Oscar Nominee Sally Kirkland (The Sting, JFK), and Sara Malakul Lane (Kick), Buddy Hutchins is now on iTunes.
BECCA ROSE: Why Buddy Hutchins? Why did you want to bring him to life?
JAMIE KENNEDY: I thought he was relatable, a character that is going through what a lot of people go through, except the chain saw part…
BR: Is there any side of Buddy’s plight that you could relate to?
JK: Yes, Buddy is misunderstood, he has good intentions with bad results, I can relate to that.
BR: Did you know Jared Cohn before signing on? Do you know if he’d had you in mind from the beginning?
JK: Yes, Jared came to me on the set of another Asylum movie, and I think he originally wanted to play Buddy, but he liked me, and he said I want you to take over this role. So I did.
BR: How would you classify the film – it seems to be an effective mix of comedy and thrills, but you might see it another way?
JK: Yes, that’s a really good question. I actually see it as a dark comedy, the chainsaw is terrible, but the way he uses it is pretty fun.
BR: Are you back from Africa? I know you were filming “Tremors 5” over there? Was that a blast?
JK: Yes, I’m so excited about the new Tremors that I tell people it’s going to be like Transformers with worms.
