Tony Todd, best-known to Trek fans as Worf’s brother Kurn, and as an older Jake Sisko (The Visitor), will be starring in a new biographical film.
The film, to be set in Las Vegas, is Cowboy’s Girl.
In Cowboy’s Girl, “Karina (Diahnna Nicole Baxter) is in search of answers from her estranged father who may, or may not be her biological parent.” Todd plays Cowboy, the estranged father.
Cowboy is described as a character with “a blend of humor, charisma, violence and impulses. He has learned to survive his life through ‘delusions of grandeur.’ He is a master manipulator of the people he interacts with and … his ability to charm women out of anything has made him master of his world.”
But Cowboy sees himself as “an iconic western ‘hero.’ He “shepherds his flock of derelict motels full of weekly rentals. [Cowboy] is a crack addict whose behavior and dichotomous nature have put him into a permanent loop of tragedy and has left him distanced from his kids.”
Cowboy’s Girl is being funded via a Kickstarter campaign, which can be found here.
