Filmmaker Justin Hannah to appear as a character in new "Papercut 2" comic book (PHOTOS)
Posted November 15, 2013

Justin Hannah isn't an actor, but he'll be playing one in a comic book this spring.

Hannah, primarily known as the filmmaker behind the award-winning "Consignment," will appear as a character in the new comic "Papercut 2: High Score." The book is written and illustrated by Kentucky filmmaker and artist Bryan Sanders. The two met in the fall of 2013 at a screening of "Consignment," and Sanders later suggested the idea of playing the character in the comic.

"Papercut 2: High Score" is an action adventure comic and a companion piece to the feature film Papercut 2, also written and directed by the multi-talented Sanders. In the comic, Hannah plays Vincent, one of five thugs who wreak havok on a small town. Each of the five villains has his own unique style and look; Vincent (second from right in the first panel below) wears a suit, loosely inspired by characters from the film Reservoir Dogs.
