Feature Film Director Michael Hofacre

Monday, August 9, 2010

How often do you have the chance to meet someone on the filmmaking team of such directors as Milos Forman, Michael Mann, Danny DeVito and Jodie Foster?

At tonight’s Hollywood Salon, you can.

Did you know there was a Nebraskan on the editing staff for THE FORTY YEAR OLD VIRGIN, TALLADEGA NIGHTS, STEP BROTHERS, and THE BEAVER (the new film directed by Jodie Foster, starring Mel Gibson)?

You will meet him at tonight’s Salon also. Along with a talented theatre director, a Shakespearean trained actor and very nice guy from Omaha.  (OK, he’s the same guy).

The August Hollywood Salon will introduce you to feature editor Michael Hofacre.  See www.nebraskacoast.com for details on Mike’s long-overdue return to the Salon tonight.

And for those of you who were wondering when we’d see Holly & Raider back at a Salon…tonight’s the night!  This Nebraska couple is one of our sweetheart stories — they married after meeting at a Salon.  And they’re about to move back to Nebraska together, so come help us give them a proper NCC send-off tonight!
