Hostile Questions: Chuck Hogan

Where do we even start with Chuck Hogan? So he typed up a pile of paper called The Prince of Thieves, which won the 2005 Hammett Award and was turned into a big fancy movie called The Town directed by Sir Ben Affleck. He’s also got some vampire books called The Strain Trilogy written with filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. But this ain’t Hollywood, Mr. Hogan. This is Hostile Questions. Your famous friends can’t protect you now.

Just who do you think you are?

Depends on the day. And the scene.

Where do you get off?

It’s true, I’m not qualified to do what I do. In fact, I’m not qualified to do anything.

What’s the big idea?

It’s out there. And in here (taps temple). And hopefully soon in there (points to laptop).

What is your problem, man?

See answer to Question One.

Haven’t you done enough?

The crazy thing is, I think I’m just getting started.
