Somebody’s Hero Press Release:
(April 27, 2012)- Beverly Hills – Starring Christopher Gorham and directed by Darin Beckstead, the heart-warming comedy for the whole family, Somebody’s Hero is available On Demand and online starting on Father’s Day – June 17th, 2012, from Brainstorm Media. Dennis (Christopher Gorham of Covert Affairs, Ugly Betty), an average New York City accountant, goes unnoticed by everyone including his co-workers and boss. When he meets his new client; a beautiful young widow Katie (Susan Misner of Gossip Girl), and her son Jake who’s fascinated with the movie superhero ‘Man-America’, Dennis takes an instant shine to them. On his way home he stops in a costume shop to try on a ‘Man-America’ uniform to surprise Jake with. When he steps out of the dressing room in costume he finds himself in the middle of an armed robbery and clumsily takes on the criminal. When the dust settles, Dennis is left a little bruised, the thug is gone and the robbery has been thwarted! Dennis thinks nothing of it, but when security camera footage hits the news it causes a media frenzy. Everyone wants to know “who is Man America” and “when is he coming back?!” Apparently like young Jake, the rest of New York City too needs a superhero to believe in. Now inspired, this average guy tries to become the superhero everyone wants him to be, armed with nothing but a silly costume and a total lack of super powers. “Some time ago, my father gave me a painting by artist Liz Lemon Swindle. It still hangs on my wall today. The title of the piece is “Even Superman needs a dad”. Look it up if you have a chance. The work certainly speaks for itself and it is easy to see the inspiration. My father recently passed away – He did however see Somebody’s Hero his preferred way… in his easy chair. As a son and a father myself, it truly is an honor to celebrate the first Father’s Day since his passing with the release of Somebody’s Hero. Add to this the premise of the film, it becomes a magic and emotional combination.”
