Los Angeles (December 22, 2013)– The long awaiting Secret Life of Walter Mitty opens nation- wide on Christmas Day. What sets apart this holiday release is its enduring message of self- fulfillment and adventure. Watching Walter Mitty, the viewer is not only transported along on Mitty’s journey, but moved to take a leap of their own.
Actor Terence Bernie Hines, a 20 year veteran of the entertainment industry, is proud to have been involved in the production of a film with such a positive and inspirational message.
Speaking of director/star Ben Stiller, Hines said, “Just as the character of Walter Mitty is an inspiration, Ben inspired all of us on set to give 110% and to deeply care–not only for the work itself, but for the characters lives we were creating with each take. He inspired me to do better and be better as a performer and as a person.”
Said Hines, “There is a magic to Walter Mitty, one that is so fitting with the season. It resonates with the human spirit and desire for greatness, adventure, and ultimately, the seeking out and actualizations of ones dreams. In fact, I’m headed on my own Mitty-esq adventure over the holidays. I’ve taken the lesson of this film to heart, as I hope all that see it do, too.”
Hines, who grew up in a rough neighborhood in Detroit, got his start on screen in the sci-fi series Swamp Thing. Since then, you’ve seen him in the Farrelly Brothers Stuck on You as well as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Raising Hope and Identity. No stranger to the A-list, Hines has worked with Meryl Streep, Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear, Eva Mendes, Ed Asner, Harrison Ford, Alfred Molina and John Cusack.
Hines is currently available for appearances and interviews.
