Proprietor of Stan's Funeral Home and Crematorium, Stan doesn't care so much about running his business, but when he meets Jarod, a special bond develops and we see a warmer side of Stan.
Brad first gained wide acclaim for his role as Billy Bibbit in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest in 1976, earning him a Golden Globe Award for Best Acting Debut, a British Academy Film Award for Best Supporting Actor, and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
Brad is known today for the role Grima Wormtongue in The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers and is the voice Chucky the killer doll in the Child's Play film series. Brad also co-starred with Gene Hackmen in 1988's Mississippi Burning and was a series regular on Deadwood.
A few quotes from Brad (though maybe not heard on the set):
I am good when there is something central about the character. There is always a human theme I attach myself to. I am really looking for something that is moving or enlightening or something with depth as an actor. I look for these kinds of roles.
There is nothing wrong with horror films. Their existence has definitely had an impact on me. It is important to have scary demons in our world on film. We have them in the world. That is why we are afraid, it is nice to have a visual and to have a confrontation with it.

The RED ONE was used to shoot D&C. You can learn more about the camera at http://www.red.com/cameras/
Shown is one of the two RED's D&C had for filming. Akis shot for the A unit and Simon Baechler was the B unit cinematographer.
If you are wondering what is so revolutionary about RED, there's a fairly simple reason for that: this is the first digital video camera that has a resolution comparable to 35 mm film, with great color range. At its core, the camera uses a Mysterium CMOS sensor: The physical resolution of this monster is 4900 x 2580 pixels, for a total of 12.64 million pixels.
