Meet the “Chuck Norris of Love” in this New Short with Lou Diamond Phillips the

Reposted from our Red Carpet Report site.

We watch a lot of indie films, shorts, and webseries at Mingle Media TV and love to share and support these projects with our audience. First, we did rush to look at it because we are fans of Lou Diamond Phillips, before we even saw the premise of the story which is typical, unless you don’t know the cast and you spend time looking at the rest of the info to see what it’s about.

We clicked on the link and watched it on YouTube. We’ve embedded it here for you below.

After watching, we wanted to thank the EP and tell them we would share this – but most of all, we read the rest of the story…

Writing for the Actor

“Lucy in the Sky with Diamond” was written for LDP and was sent to him while he was working on the new TV show Longmire (another show we love). Lou was pretty flattered by the gesture of getting a script written just for him and so he said “yes” to the project. (The power of asking for the order – if you don’t you will never get it).

Chuck Norris of Love

You’ve seen the jokes about Chuck Norris…

  • Chuck Norris’ body guard is protected by Chuck Norris
  • Chuck Norris doesn’t call the wrong number. You answer the wrong phone.
  • Chuck Norris has already been to Mars; that’s why there are no signs of life.
  • Chuck Norris and Superman once fought each other on a bet. The loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants.
  • Chuck Norris can strangle you with a cordless phone.

… and so on. LDP is a man-made of unique blending of ancestries with this father being Scots-Irish and Native American (Cherokee) and his mother of Filipino-Chicnese descent. He has played some very memorable roles in some great movies like La Bamba, Young Guns, Courage Under Fire, Stand and Deliver and oozes cool on and off-screen. We’ve (Red Carpet Report) have interviewed him and find him charming in person, with his family and irresistible. Hence why we watched the short before we read what it was about.

Now LDP is not the only one in this comedy short. It also stars John Patrick Jordan (American Pie, Mad Men) and Brian Thomas Smith (The Big Bang Theory, Happy Endings).

If you haven’t clicked play yet… what are you waiting for? If you have, why haven’t you shared this yet? Oh, good, thanks. We appreciate it. So does Joey (writer/director) of this piece – be sure to do it for Joey too.
