You probably recognize them both from television and movies – but you might not know how important hunting is to Gerald McRaney – and was to the late Powers Boothe.
Hollywood and hunting are two things not typically associated with each other, but as the two actors discuss in the latest installment of the Let’s Talk Hunting series, that wasn’t always the case. Star actors going afield was once commonplace in “old Hollywood,” but times have changed as evident by the online attacks and loss of fans that actor Chris Pratt received once his passion for hunting was made public. Despite these cultural changes, it’s good see that men like McRaney and Boothe stayed true to their roots despite their success on the big screen.
Unfortunately, Boothe lost his battle with cancer in 2017. He won an Emmy award in 1980 for his performance in Guyana Tragedy: The Story of Jim Jones and starred in other roles in Red Dawn, Deadwood, Tombstone, 24, Nashville and many more.
McRaney is also an Emmy award-winning actor thanks to his role on the NBC series This is Us and he is well known for his roles in House of Cards, Longmire, Simon & Simon, Major Dad, Promised Land, Deadwood, Castle, and NCIS: Los Angeles.
Without further ado – Let’s Talk Hunting with Gerald McRaney and Powers Boothe!
Tune in next week as we talk hunting with retired four-star general and Assistant Commandant of the United States Marine Corps, General Walter E. Boomer!
