The real-life story of arguably the greatest college walk-on, Brandon Burlsworth, hits theaters on Aug. 26th, in the inspirational film titled, "Greater." Actor Neal McDonough is now opening up about how the young athlete's faith touched everyone on set.
McDonough, known for his role as the villain in the hit TV show "Arrow," took a departure from the evil Damian Dark to take on the role as Marty Burlsworth, the brother and arguably biggest influence in the life of Burlsworth.
Starring McDonough and introducing Chris Severio, "Greater" follows the true story of Brandon Burlsworth, who is perhaps the greatest walk-on in the history of college football. Burlsworth dreamed of playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks but was told he wasn't good enough to play Division I ball. Undeterred, Burlsworth took a risk and walked on in 1994. Written off by fellow teammates and coaches, Burlsworth displayed dogged determination in the face of staggering odds. The awkward kid who once was an embarrassment to his teammates and an annoyance to his coaches, ended up becoming the most respected player in the history of the program, changing the lives of all he touched. more >>
