A Face Everyone Knows, A Name Most Folks Forget
It’s a curse felt by character actors. Everyone knows their faces. No one knows their names. Such is the fate of Kentucky-born actor Harry Dean Stanton. His movies, which include “Alien,” “The Green Mile” and “Repo Man” are the subject of a film festival this weekend in Lexington. Also this weekend a stage adaptation of “The Graduate” is performed by Studio Players. And, there’s news that a Broadway super hit will finally be performed in Lexington. Offering previews is Rich Copley, who’s an arts and cultural reporter for the Lexington Herald Leader.
