The Bubba's Bar Regulars
David Cowgill, David Steen and the late great Sarah Hunley from "A Very Sordid Wedding".
Composing Score for "Sordid Wedding"
Joe scoring the long-awaited film sequel to the cult comedy "Sordid Lives", called "A Very Sordid Wedding" and starring Bonnie Bedelia, Dale Dickey (both seen in photo), Leslie Jordan, Caroline Rhea and Whoopi Goldberg.
With Bonnie Bedelia ("Latrelle")
I've adored this actress forever, going back to 1970 ("They Shoot Horses, Don't They?") through "Die Hard", through "Salem's Lot", "Die Hard" and NBC's "Parenthood".
With Dale Dickey ("Sissy")
I've been working with Dale for 15 years on numerous projects. She is truly one of the finest (and sweetest) actors I've ever known.
With Newell and Rosemary Alexander
"Wardell" and "Dr. Eve" have been dear friends for almost 20 years. I can't even count the number of projects we've done together!
With Kirk Geiger ("Ty")
Kirk is the ORIGINAL "Ty" from both the Hollywood stage play and the film "Sordid Lives". It's so great to see him back in "Sordid Wedding"!
With Sharon Garrison ("Mrs. Barnes")
Such a lovely lady and wonderful actress. Her portrayal of "Mrs. Barnes" is a little too reminiscent of the Baptist "church ladies" I grew up with.
With Scott Presley ("Roger")
I've worked with Scott in "Southern Baptist Sissies" (stage) and other projects. His portrayal of "Roger, the hairdresser" in "Sordid Wedding" is funny and amazingly poignant.
With Cassie Nova
Cassie is a LEGEND in Dallas... the hysterical, sharp-tongued emcee at The Rose Room. It's so cool to see her on the "big screen". Somebody give her a series already!
With Emerson Collins and Kyle Erwin
Emerson is not only a producer of "Very Sordid Wedding", he also plays the bisexual serial killer "Billy Joe". (Billy Joe's theme music is one of my favorites pieces in the film!). And Kyle is my (very) significant other!
With Producer/Actress Louise Beard
Louise is also a producer of "Very Sordid Wedding" and has a hysterical role as "Aunt Little Neecy". This is our fourth collaboration together, and I couldn't be happier.
With David Cowgill & David Steen
These guys play Bubba's Bar regulars "Odell" and (wooden-legged) "G.W.". I've known and worked with both these guys are other Del Shores' projects and it's always a pleasure!
With Lorna Scott ("Vera Lisso")
Every "Sordid Lives" fan knows and loves poor Vera (and her ever-growing prayer list!). Lorna is a doll and one of the hardest-working TV/Film character actresses in the biz!
With T. Ashanti Mozelle ("Kyle")
Another longtime friend, Ashanti have worked together on too many projects to mention!
With Katherine Bayless ("Greta")
I first worked with Kat in "Sordid Lives: The Series" (where she played a nurse in Brother Boy's mental hospital and I was one of "nutjobs" running the halls!)
