Wing Commander actor Tom Wilson has released a new book! The Masked Man: A Memoir And Fantasy Of Hollywood is now available for Kindle and iBooks for around $6-7. The reviews have been stellar - it sounds like this is the next best thing to ME: The Life and Battles of Maniac Marshall!
Tom Wilson, the actor, comedian, and writer best known for playing "Biff" in the classic movie "Back To The Future," goes on an unplanned adventure after meeting fellow actor Clayton Moore, the man who played The Lone Ranger on T.V., experienced the pitfalls of pop celebrity, and most notably, died over a decade ago. In stories of the past that careen from Ethel Merman on Broadway to John Belushi on his last night on earth, to fantastic tales of the present, including a showdown on horseback on Steven Spielberg's driveway, two somewhat reluctant icons form a memorable bond, and a remarkable read.
