I have posted this on Facebook a while back but with the nationwide release of “Daylight’s End” this week, I just thought the timing was just right to share with new friends or re-share with old ones.
You might recognize him, from movies such as “Aliens,” “Terminator,” “Pumpkinhead,“ or from his portrayal of a cannibalistic cowboy chomping on Michael Wincott‘ s arm in “Dead Man” alongside Johnny Depp, or even from his role as FBI Special Agent Frank Black in the TV series “Millennium.”
I vividly remember his bone-chilling performance as stone cold killer Rafe Garrett in Walter Hill‘s “Johnny Handsome,” opposite Mickey Rourke (another favorite of mine, whom I worked with, but that’s a story for some other time.)
Lance can send chills down your spine with one look but he is also a really funny guy. If you ever run into him ask him to tell you the story about the time him and Bill Paxton got pulled over by a cop after leaving the set of “Near Dark.”
Anyways, a Hollywood legend I grew up watching and had the opportunity to meet and chat with about a project we both worked on — “Daylight’s End.” Glad he loved it.

(I love this guy even more now.)
