Corey Feldman is one of the most overlooked actors in recent times. Such treatment from Hollywood makes many actors wonder if they need another profession, but Feldman luckily has his strong ongoing music career.
As the actor turned 50, he went through an exclusive interview at MovieWeb, where he talked about his views on acting, and does he want to continue with it or not.
As far as the film front, yes, I’ve got a couple cameos. There’s a couple cameos on the way out, but they’re very brief, and that’s it. I have no films slated. I have not decided if I even want to make another film. I have literally taken this as a giant reset. And that’s what this is all about. The 50 year mark for me is saying half of my life is now over, how do I want to spend the second half of it? And that’s going to unfold as the days present themselves, and I can’t tell you what the future holds.
The actor expressed an uncertainty over his future, but still stated that his life will dictate his decision with filmmaking and acting. He also expressed that his work tends to be overlooked in Hollywood.
I don’t know that I want to dedicate any more of my life to something where I’m not being appreciated… I know that there’s appreciation for my past acting work, I’m not saying that there’s not, I’m just don’t really see myself begging for work.
Feldman also stated that director Quinten Tarantino has been on good terms with him and stated that he wants to work with him many times, but there hasn’t been an offer so far. He also revealed that his wish to direct a movie that most would be a sequel of Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter, where he appeared as Tommy Jarvis.[Via]
