Hollywood thrives on scandals, and the sexual misconduct of actors within the Hollywood system offers a wealth of stories to choose from. Quinceanera directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland are set to bring the story of Errol Flynn's fling with a 17-year-old to the screen for The Last of Robin Hood, and another actor has joined this already talented cast, as I>Sons of Anarchy’s Patrick St. Esprit will be joining Kevin Kline, Susan Sarandon, and Dakota Fanning for the indie production.
According to Variety, St. Esprit will play Herb Aadland, husband to Sarandon’s Florence and father to Beverly (Fanning), who was reportedly seduced by the forty-something Flynn when she was just a teen. St. Esprit plays a down-to-earth engineer who doesn’t understand why his wife is so obsessed with Hollywood and gets angry upon hearing of his daughter’s tryst with the Robin Hood star. I can’t imagine that St. Esprit was added because of his theoretically calm demeanor in situations where his daughter is being manhandled by someone three times her age. There will probably be some threats thrown around.
Besides his appearances on S.O.A. and other series, St. Esprit has recently been filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and the indie drama Torn, and will soon start on the sci-fi/horror Liberty with Michael Ironside.
The Last of Robin Hood takes place over the last few days of Flynn’s life before his death of a heart attack at age 50. The story comes from an original screenplay written by the directors and the film will begin shooting soon in Atlanta for a late-2013 release.
Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
