Favourite CKR roles in no particular order - Billy Tallent in Hard Core Logo
Fuck, what to say about HCL? It’s the greatest film about being in a band ever. And most people have never heard of it.
The first time I saw it I felt like Ray Kowalski had walked out of Chicago and started smoking, swearing, playing guitar, and being impossibly cool. (Even though HCL predates dS, like Billy was RayK’s previous undercover role. Which there is definitely fic of.)
It took about five watches to deal with the fact that Billy is a wanker (that’s HOW HOT Cal is in this). Hey, Joe Dick is a wanker too, but the more I watch it, the more I love Joe. And they fuck each other up because that’s what people who love each other do.
(Obviously, Bruce is the biggest wanker, because he’s fucking them up for his own ends).
Plus, everyone else in it is amazing, the soundtrack rocks, and if you’ve ever been in a shitty band van on a motorway at 3am, you’ll recognise way too much of this film.
Before HCL I’d only heard one Headstones song (yeah, on the dS soundtrack). After, they rapidly became one of my favourite bands ever. I watched this film for Cal, and I got Hugh Dillon too. How fucking amazing is that?
