Actor Kevin Bacon Comes to Seattle for Premiere of 'Cop Car' at SIFF

June 3, 2015

Seattle recently had the pleasure of hosting acclaimed actor Kevin Bacon, who was in town for the premiere of his new film Cop Car at the 2015 Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF). KCTS 9/SIFF TV's Jenni Hogan got the chance to speak with Bacon about the film, working with first-time directors, his charitable foundation, the enduring popularity of Footloose and much more.

About Cop Car

This modern-noirish thriller by up-and-coming director Jon Watts tells the story of two 10-year-old runaways who come upon what they think is an abandoned police cruiser in the Colorado wilderness and decide to take it for a joyride. The car actually belongs to a corrupt small-town sheriff, played by Bacon, who has a secret to keep — and a killer mustache — and will stop at nothing to get the car back.
