  • Rex Sikes Movie Beat chats with actor Clint Howard

    in Film

    Clint Howard, actor, has a career spanning over fifty years,and over two hundred film and TV shows.  He has spent his entire life entertaining us in a variety of interesting and unique roles. From childhood roles in The Andy Griffith Show and Star Trek to of course, the hit TV Show Gentle Ben, Clint was a well recognized personality by the time he was ten.Making the transition from juvenile to adult actor was no problem for Clint. Cult classic Rock N Roll High School and horror genre Evilspeak showed as an adult he could be versatile and affective. Whether Clint works in comedy classics like Waterboy, the Austin Powers film series or a hilarious episode of Seinfeld, he comfortably slides into dramatic roles such as Apollo 13, Frost/Nixon and Alabama Moon. Recently, Clint can be seen in the campy, B Horror title, Bloodrayne Third Reich and Rob Zombie's Lords of Salem. He's also put on the producing hat, teaming with long time colleague Gavin Grazer on an indie comedy. Born and raised in Burbank, California, Clint has always balanced his professional career with a 'hometown' oriented life. He continues to live with his wife Melanie in Burbank and stay active in the community. Stay tuned to Rex Sikes Movie Beat for other great archived interviews, cast and crew listings, events, festivals, premieres, and more at rexsikes.com

    Franchise Interviews Meets with the Stone Coat Franchise Opportunity

    in Entrepreneur

    We have a great show today.  We are meeting with Sam Hance, President of Stone Coat. This Dallas-based company is the leading innovator of a unique process creating true stone wall finishes. The company exclusive "Blown Stone" system allows you to literally resurface almost any vertical surface with a real stone finish, meaning homeowners save time and money rather than placing traditional stone in their homes.

    Originally developed in Europe to restore old historic buildings, Stone Coat is a proprietary blend of Limestone and other natural stone materials and minerals specifically designed to be blown onto almost any vertical surface. Once applied, it is able to be carved, shaped, and colored in a variety of ways, including Austin chalk, river rock, cast stone, and many more. Each finish is a custom inspiration of the artisan at work. Recreating the look of Flagstone, Limestone, Brick or Slate is all possible.

    Founded in 2010 and franchising since 2015 and with more than 20 dealers and distributors already operating across the country -Stone Coat is looking to expand its national footprint with as many as 25-30 franchise units in 2016 and 150 in the next several years.
