The Runner

Posted August 6th, 2014

The RunnerI recently finished shooting a film in New Orleans called The Runner. I play the father of Nicholas Cage's character and the former mayor of New Orleans during the BP Oil Spill. I loved this role and film as it is beautifully written. We shot in found locations. Very cool! My favorite location was an old run down southern plantation house in the 9th ward. My ride in this film is a beautiful robins egg blue 1968 Cadillac DeVille convertible.

About Peter Fonda

It’s been a long time coming.
My site is a multi level arena for all the things that are ripping through my mind. If it changes or supplements the thoughts of its visitors, it will have done its duty. Future blogs will combine the humor and irreverence that makes up my on going life.

I lead a very interesting life. Every day there is something very different, enticing, and exciting that happens to me or around me. I am into acting and directing for the stage and screen, and all human triumph and failure, our planet Earth, long distance open ocean sailing, ecology, hydrology, astrophysics, geology, botany, and history.

Part of my lifestyle you should all remember is having fun. Being funny is a big part of it. After all, if one is in tune, funny is the tune to play. Giving laughter is more fun than giving advice. Giving laughter while giving advice is the jackpot. What a great word, 'jackpot.'

I believe that one is only truly free when one is learning, and one can only learn when one is free. Freedom is NOT just another word for "nothing left to lose." though I like Kris Kristofferson's song, "Bobby Mcgee" (he taught it to me while we were shooting Dennis Hopper's film, The Last Movie, in Peru in 1970). In this case, it has nothing to do with songs and poetry. It is all about freedom.

So, my site is about all of that and much more. There will be a store in the near future and a black-market store with my FKA brand of radical sport boards and clothing. I look forward to bringing you with me on films, on stage, on the ocean, in my life.
