Lance is perhaps best known for his role as Proctor in the Police Academy Movies, but his career in the entertainment industry is nothing short of amazing. He’s been in theater, TV and Hollywood and his first directorial venture was, by far, one of my favorite screenings that I’ve ever done. The film is All Stars, which played at the Cinema At The Edge Film Festival in 2014.
All Stars follows a girl’ 10-year-old fast-pitch softball team and their families through a recreation league season that culminates in the selection of the coveted 10-and-Under-All-Star Team.
What comes out of that season is a hilarious commentary on the state of youth sports and insane behavior of the parents who are living vicariously through their children.
Lance plays the veteran coach who assumed he would be coaching a 16 and under team, but was given the 10 and under team only to find out that they have next to no experience and very little drive to actually play the game. He also has to deal with the parents of these children who, quite frankly, behave worse than their children do.
I really enjoyed this film and my chat with Lance about his production, the directorial debut of this amazing actor and, of course, his plans for the release and distribution of the film, which will be in December on all VOD platforms and on DVD.
