At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, I had so many interviews going on it was hard to keep track of where I needed to be and when. Some of them I've held on to, since the projects were still months away... such as SAW 3D, which opens this weekend. I always love talking to Sean Patrick Flanery, partly because he's an interesting and engaging actor, but mostly because he's genuinely a nice cat. Sean came to Dallas earlier in the year to make a special appearance at the Dallas Comic Con, and we chased that by having him sign at the Official Pix booth at San Diego. We got a chance to talk on camera with Flanery once again, and catch up on what he's got coming out, particularly SAW 3D from Lionsgate. In the interview, Sean talks a bit about his role in the film, and the finality of the SAW franchise. He also answers the inevitable question about whether or not we'll see a third installment to THE BOONDOCK SAINTS films, and even plugs THE BOONDOCK SAINTS comic books. Check out the interview below, and links just under it for more info on Mr. Flanery - and go see SAW 3D this Friday!
