I've been a huge fan of WAR OF THE WORLDS since my childhood, first becoming enthralled by the 1953 film, and later finding the original broadcast on cassette at my local library. I'd later become a huge fan of the late-80s syndicated television show, and oddly enough - would find out that I bore a physical resemblance to Orson Welles in my early adult life. I ended up playing the legendary personality in a not-so-good short film called BEING ORSON. Weird how things work out.
