The Devil’s Five actor Kevin Cusick will play “FBI Director Andrew” in the upcoming political thriller Enhanced Interrogation.

Film Director Terry R. Wickham explains his reason for casting the New York City based actor, “After reading the screenplay for Enhanced Interrogation, Kevin was absolutely the first actor I thought of for the film.  The high ranking governmental official roles required getting actors with considerable life experience, intelligence and acting ability.

Actor Kevin Cusick rehearses one of the Interrogation scenes in The Devil’s Five with actor Ralf Scheepers. Director Terry R. Wickham stands in the distance observing in Riverhead, NY on 9/18/15.

Kevin brought all those same qualities to The Devil’s Five as “Detective Armitage.”  Without question he’s one of the best actors I’ve worked with in the 30 years I’ve been directing.  I felt that Kevin could anchor Enhanced Interrogation with his performing skills and professional dedication.

So I passed the script onto Kevin and gave him the choice of playing any of the characters in the film.  Kevin choose” FBI Director Andrew.”

Kevin has already begun his thorough preparation to play the character and we are in deep discussion about how we can to make the movie the best it can be before filming begins.”

Rex Carroll “Re-Animate” song licensed for The Devil’s Five


Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham has reached an agreement with Whitecross/King James/Fierce Heart Guitarist Rex Carroll to license his song “Re-Animate” for The Devil’s Five segment.

Wickham describes, “I first heard Rex Carroll’s incredible playing when I bought the Fierce Heart cassette back in the mid-80s.  I remember when I was stationed in the US Army in Kaiserslautern, West Germany, I had a barracks buddy who played guitar named  Nye Jones.  We would tape trade (like most heavy metals fans back in the day), so gave him a stack of cassettes to listen to for a week or two.  When saw him the next time I asked him which one did he like the best and he said Fierce Heart because the guitarist blew him away.  This is around the time I first started making movies as a filmmaker.  I couldn’t imagine at that time that one day I’d work with Rex.

I know a lot of people might know of Rex from his playing in Whitecross.  That’s cool, but besides Fierce Heart, I am a huge fan of of his playing in King James because that is a serious heavy rocking metal band.

When we started post-production on The Devil’s Five I decided that I wanted a guitar instrumental song to be coming from the white BMW that the main character “Ansell Schneider” (played by Ralf Scheepers) is driving.  I wanted this for multiple reasons.  One I thought it would be a bit of a tip of the hat to honor star Ralf Scheepers real life Heavy Metal heritage.  More important I thought that type of song would add to the organized chaos I was trying to create for the opening scene of the movie.


Being a lifelong fan of exceptional guitar playing, I wasn’t going to be satisfied with getting something from just an ordinary guitar player.
So I reached for the stars by contacting Rex and when he said he was interested, I was ecstatic.

I feel really blessed and honored that we could work out an agreement to use his killer song “Re-Animate.  I’m having Sound Designer Juan Pablo Moreu line up the song, so it strikes a hit-point at the climax of the scene.  I also think this will the beginning of a working relationship with Rex.”
