‘Justified’ star Nick Searcy talks Hollywood’s liberal bias, they are the new ‘blacklisters’ they are ‘on thin ice’

In an amazing new interview actor Nick Searcy spoke with LifeZette about everything from his politics to his career, including the upcoming film Gosnell, which chronicles the capture of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell and which Searcy directed.

When asked about the influence of his conservative politics, if it was a set back, Searcy said that “I wouldn’t know. Perhaps. But it isn’t something I would be told, even if it was happening. I have been very fortunate to be allowed to make a great living and raise a beautiful family doing something I would probably do for free — and in fact DID do for free, for many years.”

Later he got more direct, addressing the liberal bias, outrage towards Donald Trump.

“…I am not minimizing the prejudice against actors and other tradesmen in this town who are not Democrats, and feel that they dare not speak out. The progressives in Hollywood are in danger of becoming the new McCarthyites. Every few years they make another Guilty by Suspicion or Trumbo or Good Night and Good Luck. They love to make movies about the blacklist — but they are oblivious to the fact that they may be becoming the ‘blacklisters’ they claim to despise. When you’re standing at a microphone encouraging people to ‘punch Nazis,’ and your definition of ‘Nazi’ seems to be nothing more than “people who don’t vote like me” — you’re on thin ice.”

Hitler and Nazi have been two favorite labels heaped upon Trump and his cabinet: TIME Magazine’s Hitler coverWhoopi Goldberg likens Trump to Tablian, Ashley Judd levies profanity filled rant of Nazi attacks on Trump, and San Francisco voter flies Nazi flag to make a statement against Trump.

Searcy’s most famous role was Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Art Mullen on Justified.

“Six seasons! And thank God for that!”he said, explaining some of the appeal of the show. “Many people told me the show reminded them of home — not necessarily the lurid crime aspect of it, which was heightened for effect, but just the humor among the characters, the way they talked and teased and joked with each other. There isn’t really anything else like our show in that respect.”

Searcy talks about the Gosnell film, noting that there hasn’t been any distribution news.

“…it is a very good little film about a very dark subject, the case of Kermit Gosnell, an abortion doctor convicted in 2013 of murdering a number of newborn infants in his practice of over 30 years. I am told the producers have had a tough time getting that film through the Hollywood apparatus because of the subject matter, which isn’t hard to believe. But the film itself is not preachy. I worked very hard to try to keep it a film that simply told the story of what this murderer actually did, and not a movie that told the audience what they should think about it. I hope it gets a wide release. It’s a good film, and it goes places that no dramatic narrative feature film has ever gone.”

“I would think that controversy and a hot-button issue like this would attract some profit-hungry distributor, but perhaps ideology does trump all in Hollywood. We shall see!”
