My Wooden Leg Song in Hollywood Movie
“A Circus,” off the hard-C&W Fort Worth quartet My Wooden Leg’s forthcoming album of the same name, will be featured in Sinners & Saints, a summer-2011 action movie directed by William Kaufman and starring Tom Berenger, Sean Patrick Flannery (Boondock Saints), Kim Coates (Black Hawk Down), Jolene Blalock, and Method Man. The scene: A slab of vinyl spins slowly on a record player, pumping out “A Circus” –– and drowning out the screams of people being burned alive. Hev. Eee. My Wooden Leg frontman Michael Maftean says viewers will get to hear a good two minutes of the song. Maftean got in contact with the director via a mutual friend. Bada-bing, bada-boom, a Fort Worth band’s in a Hollywood shoot-’em-up. To celebrate the release of A Circus, My Wooden Leg will perform on Sat., Feb. 5, at the Chat Room (1263 W. Magnolia Ave., South Side, 817-922-8319).
