Read this amazing Article by Highlight Hollywood’s Tommy Lightfoot Garrett

February 28, 2012                         by Tommy Lightfoot Garrett

ZacharyAlexanderRiceZachary Alexander Rice is a budding young star who has taken Hollywood and absolutely anyone who ever met him by storm. Not like any child star in history, with the exception of possibly Shirley Temple and Kirk Cameron; Zachary has his head on straight and is not only ready for his “Close-up,” but he has had several close-ups and brushes with fame. The fact that he is the son of two great parents definitely helps him in this tough industry.  Zach’s father, Steve is a rocket scientist for Grumman. And his mother, McKenzie “Kenzie,” who came along with Zach on this interview is very accomplished in her own right.   Kenzie is an award winning artist who’s work has been commissioned by The Grammy Foundation for the past two years in a row. Last year her painting of Barbra Streisand was auctioned off for $50,000 and most recently, she has been commissioned to paint Sir Paul McCartney. However, as with anything that occurs in this family, Zack is put first and foremost, and his amazing upbringing has been instrumental in creating a young star, who has never lost his manners, gratitude and most of all, his kind spirit.

The prolific young actor has appeared on TV, on stage and on the big screen.  “I loved working with JJ Abrams, Tommy. I hope to work with him again,” said Zach in an exclusive interview with Highlight Hollywood.  Not only did Zach have a role in Abrams’s “Super 8” last year, but he’s also starred in several feature films including; “Little Fockers,” and currently is filming “Knightswood” and “They Work For Tips.”

How many young 7-year-olds in Hollywood can tout that they have worked with Steven Spielberg, JJ Abrams, Russell Brand, Owen Wilson, Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel and Brad Garrett? Only Zachary can make such a statement. But he takes it all in stride. “I loved working with all of them. I really enjoy acting, and everyone that I have worked with has given me instructions, Tommy. That I realize is invaluable, and for that, I am very grateful to every co-star I’ve had,” said young Rice.  That’s how Zach was raised. He embraces every opportunity with gratitude, and when you speak with him, you have to remind yourself that this is actually a kid. A young man, but an old soul, far beyond his time, Rice is moving very swiftly to creating his own brand of stardom, and it’s amazing to watch his rise.

Part of celebrity is having a growing following, and did you know that Zach has over twenty thousand Twitter followers and he is not only listed in IMDB’s top 5000 but IMDB has listed him in the top ten kids to look at for in 2012!  The young Master Rice has also recently authored his first book, “Act Like A Kid.” After years of getting advice about how to break into acting, Zach now has penned his story on giving young kids his advice on breaking into acting. “I didn’t think that it was anything special to write the book, Tommy. I wanted to help others, and that’s how I was raised. I am the luckiest kid in the world, I love life, and I have the best parents on the planet. How could I not share,” the adorable and talented young star tells Highlight Hollywood in his first exclusive and in depth interview.

Legendary actor Lance Henriksen will be the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award during the 2012 Derby City Film Festival in February. Henriksen, who’s career spans 4+ decades and includes credits in nearly 200 films, television shows and video games, will be attending the festival in support of his role in the film “It’s in the Blood”.
Henriksen is probably best known for his role as Bishop in the “Aliens” and “Aliens vs. Predator” films and video games, but he has also appeared in the classic films “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, “The Right Stuff” and “Terminator” among others.  In the late 90’s he played  Frank Black in the television series “Millennium”. and more recently he has lent his voice talents to video games like “Transformers”, “Call of Duty”  and “Mass Effect”.
“It’s in the Blood” is a feature film from Louisville natives and Ballard High School graduates Scooter Downey & Sean Elliot and is up for three awards including Best Feature Film and two Best Actor Nominations for stars Henriksen & Sean Elliot. “Blood”  tells the tale of a father (Henriksen) and son (Elliot) who become stranded in the wild and must confront the horrors of their past to escape with their lives.  However, this wilderness is not what it seems, and as they deteriorate, so to does their concept of reality: horrifying creatures, ghostly apparitions, is it all in their heads, or could the truth be far more terrible? “It’s in the Blood” screens at 8:00 PM on February 18th with the short film “Endless”. There will be a Q&A with the films stars and production team follow the screening.
Henriksen will be taking part in some of the festival’s activities including panels and the awards presentation & symposium. He will also be promoting his new biography, “Lance Henriksen – Not Bad for a Human” which was released in 2011. An autograph session has been scheduled for Saturday afternoon from 3:00 – 4:00. Henriksen will be available to sign memorabilia or copies of his biography. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. The autograph session is only available to DCFF attendees and you will be required to show your ticket or pass to take part. The Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Henriksen prior to the screening of “It’s in the Blood” on Saturday. Henriksen will be available for interviews with the media during the weekend of the festival beginning Friday the 17th. Please contact DCFF for details.
