Back in July, I got a chance to meet up with Doug Jones on the set of his new film, MY NAME IS JERRY. In this film, produced by the College of Fine Arts at Ball State University, the Institute for Digital Entertainment and Education, and Clothespin Films, LLC, Doug gets a chance to be the leading man in a major commercial production. Doug plays a forty-something door-to-door salesman (“Jerry”) who, in the midst of a mid-life crisis, finds excitement when he meets Jordan, an engaging young punk rocker. In this exclusive interview, we talk about the experience of being a “leading man” in JERRY, as well as some Doug’s favorite roles and potential upcoming projects.
DTF: How has this experience been so far?
