In the film Bacon will play the role of estranged father of Baker’s character, who goes on the run with a bag full of cash after a robbery of his former crime boss goes wrong. With a potentially fatal wound, he boards a bus headed into the unrelenting California desert. After a call for help, Bacon’s character betrays him by notifying the crime boss of his location.
I’m really excited to work with Kevin. He was already a major star when he really caught my eye as Willie O’Keefe in Oliver Stone’s JFK.’ To me he showed a new, raw and very powerful side. His turn in The Woodsman’ should have won him an Oscar and I love his work in his new show City on a Hill.,” Baird said.
