Veteran Actor Joins the Cast of CDI's Upcoming Project, 'Best Years Gone'

LANSING, Mich. - Oct. 25, 2020 - PRLog -- When veteran actor Terence Knox broke into mainstream film and TV productions in 1980 (in Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg's cult classic comedy 'Used Cars' starring Kurt Russell), he began a lofty career run playing opposite dozens of on-screen talents destined for stardom (even Super- Stardom), including himself.

Mr. Knox earned a regular role as Dr. Peter White on the 1982-88 TV series, 'St. Elsewhere,' about the doctors and nurses at a run-down teaching hospital on Boston's south end. The series earned 13 Emmy Awards for writing, acting and directing. And the seven-year series run included a cast roll call the likes of Denzel Washington, David Morse, Helent Hunt, Ronny Cox, Mark Harmon, Ed Begley Jr., Alfre Woodard, Howie Mandel and many others.

But it was his turn as Sgt. 'Zeke' Anderson in the gritty, award-winning Vietnam-themed series, 'Tour of Duty' (which ran for four seasons, 1987-90) that made Mr. Knox a household name and the show 'weekly destination viewing.' 'Tour of Duty' still plays in syndication weekly on 'Heroes and Icons' channel.

Collective Development Incorporated CEO DJ Perry (who stars in 'Best Years Gone' with Erika Hoveland) recently announced that Mr. Knox, affectionately known by fellow actors for his buzz phrase 'watch and learn,' has joined the cast of 'Best Years Gone' as 'Izzy,' an eccentric, quirky backwoods 'Yooper' (Michigan's Upper Peninsula). He will play opposite Lana Wood, a fine actress in her own right, from the Hollywood family that included her late sister, Natalie Wood.

'Best Years Gone' will be Mr. Knox's fourth turn in a CDI Production, and his sixth when including associated projects.

In 2002, when Mr. Perry and CDI producer-actor-director-screenwriter Anthony Hornus were developing 'An Ordinary Killer' (Based on a True Story), Mr. Hornus (remembering and appreciating Mr. Knox from 'Tour of Duty') made a cold-call inquiry to 'Terry's' agent. 'Terry' loved the screenplay (based on Mr. Hornus' true crime book of the same title) and he was cast as 'Detective Ben Bannister,' playing opposite Mr. Perry's Det. Lynn Kendall.

And that has led to a six-film professional relationship and friendship between Mr. Knox and CDI's 'Tribe' of artists ('Dean Teaster's Ghost Town,' 'Deadly Renovations,' 'Bestseller,' 'Chasing the Star').

'Best Years Gone,' a dramedy, will be directed by Shane Hagedorn and rolls cameras later this month in communities between and including Lansing and Jackson (Mich.).

The film will be distributed by Bridgestone Multimedia Group (BMG).
