The Shawshank Redemption with Clancy Brown
I Was There Too #43 August 17, 2016
Accomplished actor Clancy Brown joins Matt to talk about his role as the tough as nails prison guard Captain Hadley in the 1994 Frank Darabont film The Shawshank Redemption. They chat about how Clancy’s difficulty saying some of his character’s colorful dialogue in the audition eventually got him the gig, why he turned down offers to work with correctional officers to help him with his role, and really hanging Tim Robbins over the ledge of a rooftop. Plus, we’ll hear stories from the set of LOST, Sean Connery offering Clancy wisdom while filming Highlander, and Shakespeare being quoted on the set of Dukes of Hazzard.
