EXCLUSIVE: Clifton Collins Jr. Talks ‘Hellbenders 3D’

Clifton Collins Jr., easily one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, never likes to limit himself to a certain type of character, which is why we've seen him shine as all sorts of diverse characters. This year alone, for example, he starred as a criminal in the action-thriller Parker, a straight-laced technician in the sci-fi summer blockbuster Pacific Rim and an FBI agent in the ABC midseason drama series Red Widow. This acting chameleon returns to the big screen once more this year as the sinful minister Larry in Hellbenders 3D, debuting in theaters and on VOD formats October 18. Larry is just one of six members of the Hellbound Saints, ordained ministers who live in constant sin so that, as a last resort, they can invite possession of a demon and kill themselves, causing both the saint and the demon to go straight to hell.

I recently had the chance to speak with Clifton Collins Jr. over the phone about his role in writer-director J.T. Petty's religious comedy. Here's what he had to say.

There are demons so terrible that no mortal man of God could successfully drive them back to Hell. The only option is for the exorcist himself to invite possession and then commit suicide, dragging along the demon to damnation - so the Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints - or Hellbenders - was formed. A group of elite, highly-trained exorcists, they live in a constant state of debauchery so they will be ready to go to Hell at any moment. When an infernal Norse demon called BLACK SURTR escapes into New York City intent on cracking open the gates of Hell, the Hellbenders must use every ounce of their debauchery to battle the demon and save the planet from eternal damnation!
