Exclusive Q&A: Bridge Goon from 'Gangster Squad'

Derek Mears Persona PR

There's a long, rich tradition of gooning in Hollywood, one you can trace all the way back to Dennis Hopper's remarkable portrayal of Goon in the 1955 classic "Rebel Without a Cause."

Actor/comedian/goon-for-hire Derek Mears is a student of history, a man who clearly respects the goons who came before him while looking at himself as a role model for a new generation of goons being ushered in. His dedication shines through in the new shoot-em-up "Gangster Squad," in which Mears appears opposite Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling in the vital role of "Bridge Goon."

Ch-ch-ch, ha-ha-Hansel. That might be what audiences hear in "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" now that Jason Voorhees has joined the 3D thriller.

According to JoBlo, actor Derek Mears, who portrayed the hockey-masked hacker in the 2009 "Friday the 13th" reboot, has joined director Tommy Wirkola's frightening new take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale.

And if you thought Jason was miffed at those Camp Crystal Lake counselors, that's nothing compared to what Hansel and Gretel have in store. Fifteen years after being held hostage in a gingerbread house, the now grown siblings are still pretty p.o.'ed and are hell-bent on wiping out some witches. Get More »
