Kentucky Native Michael Shannon Appearing in TV, Movies, Theater

Kentucky has spawned its fair share of Hollywood actors….from Patricia Neal to Jennifer Lawrence, and now, Michael Shannon.  The Lexington native cancelled an appearance this weekend at the Kentucky Theater, but Shannon’s newest film still opens there.  Rich Copley, who covers culture for the Lexington Herald Leader, spoke about this weekend’s events with WEKU’s Charles Compton.
