My Interview with Prom Night's Johnathon Schaech Finally Sees the Light of Day...

My long-delayed interview with Johnathon Schaech is out now in the May 2008 issue of Autograph Magazine. Schaech (whose last name rhymes with "deck") is an actor and screenwriter, best known for his roles in films like How to Make an American Quilt, That Thing You Do!, Hush, The Forsaken, the TV biopic Houdini, and the recent is-it-or-isn't-it-a-remake Prom Night. He was also married to Married with Children and Samantha Who? actress Christina Applegate, but the two divorced in August 2007. This is actually the second half of a longer interview I did with him; the first half appears in its entirety at Dark Scribe Magazine.

Schaech has now branched out into screenwriting, collaborating with writing partner Richard Chizmar (the well-regarded Cemetery Dance publisher) on several film and TV scripts, including an adaptation of Bentley Little's short story The Washingtonians for the Showtime series Masters of Horror and adaptations of two Stephen King books - From a Buick 8 and Black House (which King co-wrote with Peter Straub).

You can pick up a copy of Autograph at your local Borders or Barnes & Noble and it can also be ordered online. Click here for a preview of the interview.
