Actress Taryn Manning stopped by to talk about her upcoming film The Perfect Age Of Rock n' Roll, which premieres on August 5th. The film is a rock 'n' roll drama about two childhood friends and former rock 'n' roll bandmates who become estranged and reunited on a cross-country trip road trip along the infamous Route 66.
It's a really great film that pays homage to the blues legends that build the foundation for rock 'n' roll, while honoring the artist who brought rock to the world stage. The film has original songs by Steve Conte of The New York Dolls, and Composer Andrew Hollander. It also features a historic performance by blues legends Hubert Sumlin, Pinetop Perkins, Sugar Blue, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith and Bob Stroger.
World famous rock star Spyder (Kevin Zegers Transamerica, Frozen) has achieved fame and fortune with a smash hit debut album. This blinding success however, is built on the Faustian pact that capitalized on the genius of his long lost childhood best friend and band mate, Eric Genson (Jason Ritter NBC's The Event, Good Dick). Now Spyder retreats to his small hometown after his sophomore effort flops.
Reconnecting with Eric after a seven year estrangement, the two recall their youthful ambitions and reexamine the choices they've made. Accompanied by the band's ambitious, fiery manager (Taryn Manning CBS's Hawaii 5-0, Hustle & Flow, 8 Mile), the legendary music impresario August West (Peter Fonda Easy Rider, 3:10 to Yuma) and a raucous crew of musicians, they set off on a cathartic journey along historic Route 66 that brings them closer to each other, their history and their destiny.
Fueled by a stellar rock 'n' roll soundtrack that includes songs by Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Iggy & The Stooges, Aerosmith, Muddy Waters, The Violent Femmes, Howlin' Wolf, Jane's Addiction, and many more, The Perfect Age of Rock 'N' Roll fully captures the energy, rebellion, and thrills of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle.
The Perfect Age of Rock 'N' Roll also stars Lukas Haas, Kelly Lynch, Lauren Holly, Ruby Dee, Billy Dee Williams, Michael K. Williams, James Ransone and Aimee Teegarden.
