Interview: Michael Paré

Michael f was lucky enough to have a quick interview with the legendary actor Michael Paré, as part of the release for Uwe Boll’s latest film to get released in Australia (which Pare co-stars in) Assault On Wall Street.

Michael Paré has been working steadily for over 30 years, with films such as Streets Of Fire, The Philadelphia Experiment, Eddie And The Cruisers, Moon 44, Bad Moon and so many others making their mark. In recent years Paré has often teamed with Uwe Boll, whether he stars in one of his films or makes an appearance, it is always a lot of fun to see him.

As a long time fan of Michael Paré and his work, it was an honour to have the chance to speak with him. Hopefully once Michael has finished shooting, he will be able to come back and chat to us some more.
