Pushing Dead: strong actors in the lead roles

A new article about Pushing Dead, including an interview with writer / director Tom Brown, has been shared online in advance of the film's screening at the upcoming Damn These Heels film festival in Utah. Of interest is the timeliness of the film's subject, given current US politics, how Tom Brown managed to get the film made, and has a brief mention of Tom Riley's character and storyline.

The production soldiered on, with strong actors in the lead roles: James Roday ("Psych") as Dan; Robin Weigert ("Deadwood") as Paula, Dan's roommate and the sister of his deceased boyfriend; Danny Glover as Bob, the crotchety owner of a bar where Dan works as a bouncer and poetry-slam emcee; Khandi Alexander ("Treme") as Dot, Bob's fiery wife; and British actor Tom Riley ("Da Vinci's Demons") as Mike, with whom Dan launches a tentative romance.
