Fantastic Performance by Collie
Mark Collie's performance in the short film blew me and the rest of the assembled audience away. Later, in an interview, Mark told us that Johnny witnessed the film and made the comment, "ya got a good film, son, but ya need to work on yer twitch." I think that if Mr. Joaquin Phoenix ever drops out of the production of "Walk the Line" they need to consider Mark Collie. If not they need to let Mr. Phoenix study both Johnny's videos and filmed performances and this short film. Mark Collie WAS Johnny Cash in this film. Simply Awesome.
Any actor other than Mr. Phoenix or Mark Collie would be an insult to the life of the Man in Black. Even Johnny Cash's own wife loved the film. She reportedly told Mark that she could see Johnny up there on the screen. Mark told me he was truly honored by her complement. Mark Collie IS Johnny Cash in this film.
