Bosworth’s movie promo tour begins in Duncan



Bosworth’s character Hawg leads a groups of bikers known as the Barbarians, who try to gain revenge from what they believe are the wrongdoings done by God. Starring in films is nothing new for the Oklahoma native, who has been in feature films like Stone Cold, One Man’s Justice and The Longest Yard. 
Bosworth’s connection to the town comes through his friend, Duncan native Tony Newsom. The pair met at a Sooner game, exchanged information and have stayed in touch. When Bosworth began making calls to arrange appearances all across the state, he knew he could count on Tony to set up a showing in Duncan.
“This has all gotten to this point because of Tony’s help,” Bosworth said. “We’ve known each other a long time. One year I wanted to watch the Sooners game but it was all the way in West Virginia, so Tony took me in and we watched the game together in Duncan.”
A resident of California since 1990, Bosworth said he plans to live in the Sooner state once again very soon.
“Oklahoma is still my home,” Bosworth said. “I’ve been trying to move back here for a long time. It always feels good to go back to your roots.”
When it comes to the personality most knew him by, Bosworth never truly saw himself as “The Boz.”
“I was gigantically misunderstood,” Bosworth said. 
“Going on shows like Letterman, that’s not me. I’ve always been the small town kid from Oklahoma and those are the kind of people I identify with.”
Showings of the movie will begin at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., with an admission of $3.00. 
Bosworth will be available at noon to begin autographing DVD’s and posters that will be available for purchase.
