Here's a cool news story I missed while off galavanting on the West Coast. Former Punisher, Thomas Jane partnered up with other fanboy fave Ron Perlman for a short tribute film to the Marvel Comics psychopath. The result is a strange little short film depicting Frank Castle beating the crap outta some random hoods. And it's VIOLENT. And filled with potty language. So NSFW territory. I think Jane looks great as The Punisher but I was not a fan of his interpretation. John Travolta just Travoltaed it up a tad too much. And Frank wasn't broken enough for me. Personally, I'll take War Zone any day. Or Dolph Lundgren's version. Yeah, you heard me. I want a psycho monster Frank Castle. But this short film shows a Thomas Jane Punisher I could have totally gotten behind.
And I love seeing Thomas Jane flying his geek flag high and proud. Remember, his Jonah Hex makeup test from a few years back? That was similarly geeky cool.
