MY GUEST TODAY IS

JACK KEARNEY

 

 

Jack’s bio in his own words

My name is Jack Kearney, and although I am not what one might consider successful, at 63 I am a recently published author, and success is just around the corner. You say you're looking for someone with charisma, and that I have. I have always been that person who you notice in a crowded bar or party. I think the inspiration for my book alone, you will find very intriguing.

Inside Out  One Actors Nightmarish Journey of Incarceration

I guarantee there has never been a plot like this before

For most of my life I was a struggling actor. I appeared on such shows as Mash, WKRP in Cincinnati, and General Hospital. For a short time, I even taught an acting workshop. I was a graduate of the very prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts where I was part of the first graduating class in Los Angeles. After that I joined the ranks of the other sixty thousand would-be stars that acted in showcase plays, occasionally went on a professional audition, and attended a weekly workshop.

The women that ran my workshop got involved in an interesting experiment directing a group of prisoners at the Federal Correctional Institution, Lompoc, California, in a production of Short Eyes. Except for the lead character, all the roles were played by inmates.  Because of its success she was granted a weekend to conduct an improvisational workshop with the men who had been in the cast, as long as she was  accompanied by a male from the outside. When she proposed the idea to me, I was excited at the possibility of being part of something that unique and agreed to be her assistant. As it turned out, nothing of any real consequence came about, but it was a very interesting weekend that few if any will ever experience. I met some very fascinating guys, some of whom I got along with and others thatlets just say, I was glad that there were guards stationed just outside of our room.

After I got back to my regular life, a few years later I had a scare that made me think, what would happen if someone were to be part of this program and, by a twist of fate, end up back inside as an inmate?  Inside Out is that story. Danny Belson is a nice guy who could be considered a working actor. He has done a few guest spots and has a small recurring role on a soap. Using flashbacks, we follow Danny as he goes from a carefree beach-volleyball loving, pool- shooting, nice American guy to a convicted murderer serving his time where he already has built in friends as well as enemies. This is a book of fiction based on real events that happen to inmates on a daily basis. I believe that this is the first book to take an absolute non-criminal type and toss him into a situation where he knows some of the inmates already. Ironically, because of the workshop he has made some friends as well as enemies. When his foes attack him, his friends help to avenge his attackers. Readers will be tormented with this dilemma and hopefully be left with plenty to think about in their own lives.

My experience in the late seventies inspired me to write a script in the mid-eighties. It was to be my Rocky. So if you are looking for someone who has led a fascinating life, a bit unconventional, then I will be a very good interview for you, because after all these years I am going to be famous.
