TV & FILM GUESTS

JERY HEWITT (The Warriors/Good Will Hunting/Fargo/No Country for Old Men)

Jery Hewitt has been the stunt co-ordinator for countless films including Fargo, No Country for Old Men and Good Will Hunting.  But he’s most famous for his role in the 1970’s cult classic – The Warriors.  Jery played Thurman the leader of the iconic Baseball Furies.   The gang wears baseball uniforms and carries baseball bats. When wearing their 'warpaint', they are never heard to speak; which adds to their frightening presence and mysterious intentions.  The Furies chased The Warriors across a park until Ajax (James Remar) and Cowboy (Tom McKitterick) could run no further and so ensued one of the most legendary fight scenes of the whole movie.

Jery Hewitt went on to roles in The Wanderers (Another 70’s cult film), Miller’s Crossing,  Malcolm X ad the Young Indiana Jones TV series.  Jery is still very active in film today as the stunt co-ordinator for many of the big movies we all love to watch.

Join the Meet & Greet for Jery Hewitt with Joel Weiss (Cropsey – The Warriors) by going to the store.


TERRY STONE (Rise of the Foot Soldier/Rollin With the Nines)

Terry Stone began his Acting & Producing career in May 2003 at the ripe old age of 32 and over the past 14 years has carved an impressive career on both sides of the camera.
