Treat Williams has had a long career as a character actor of sorts. Which is exactly the reason he can have one scene in a film like HOWL and have you remembering it long after you've left the theater. Williams stars as real life writer, critic, and scholar Mark Schoerer, who testified in the 1957 landmark trial against Allen Ginsberg's "Howl," which was thought to be obscene at the time.

Check our interview with Mr. Williams in which we parallel the commentary behind HAIR to HOWL, as well as talk a little DEEP RISING and THE SUBSTITUTE.
