We all have our favorite character actors, right?
One of mine — I have many — is Man Mountain of the Great White North Ron Perlman, of “Quest for Fire,” “Hellboy” and too many too indie and B-movies to number.
He’s the title character in “Asher,” yet another hitman wants to retire thriller in the droll and dramatic vein.
Famke Janssen is the love interest, Peter Facinelli the younger guy in “the life,” and Oscar winner Richard Dreyfus reaches for another Eastern European accent as the boss who needs this one last job, you know, “contracted.”
“Asher” opens on Pearl Harbor Day, Dec. 7.
