Barry Corbin, "House of Terror" and more

Barry Corbin is another one of those actors who's been in just about anything you can name on TV and in movies. His career began in the 1970s and hasn't shown any signs of slowing down since then. For us "Dallas" fans, he was Sheriff Fenton Washburn. For "Dukes of Hazzard" fans, he played Mr. Pullman in the 2005 movie. Now, Corbin has some new projects in the works ...

"The House of Terror" is a thriller scheduled for release a year from now. In it, Corbin portrays the president of Hungary. The plotline, from the IMDb: "A journalist is constantly haunted by images of the initial: C.F. The mysterious sign leads her to a strange building, where thousands of people were brutally tortured 50 years ago. The identities of these victims are yet to be revealed." Filming in Budapest, it also stars Talia Shire and Clint Howard.

"The Hill" is a a romantic drama about a tight-knit group of college friends who graduated from NYU the year of 9/11 and reunite seven years later for a weekend wedding in Athens, Georgia. The film, from Wonder Entertainment, films right here in Athens, Georgia. Corbin plays Uncle Dennis.

And in "Lake City," which just completed, Corbin is George. This one is also set in the South, the IMDb says: "In this searing Southern drama, a mother and son reunite under desperate circumstances years after a family tragedy drove them far apart."
