    What a joy to see your thoroughly engaging talent again Grant! Intrigued by your book too…as you may remember, I have a somewhat Bulger inspired story to tell too. And I think I just saw you in the lead role…
    I’m up to my neck in 2 projects right now but hope we can chat sometime soon. Stephen King – Glasgow
