Mark Hapka (ex-Nathan, DAYS) has been cast in 23 Blast, an indie drama that will feature GLEE's Max Adler (Dave), Justin Long, Stephen Lang and Dylan Baker (also the director). Production will start next month in Kentucky. "The movie deals with two best friends," he says. "My character is at the height of his football career. He is going into his senior year and getting letters from a bunch of colleges when he is suddenly hit with irreversible blindness which changes the game." See a future issue of Digest for a full interview with Hapka.
