Question: Are you working on any other projects?

Mehcad Brooks: "...there's a film called "Fencewalker" that should be hopefully coming out this year, hitting the festivals. It's Chris Carter's passion project — he wrote and directed it. It's got me, Natalie Dormer, Katie Cassidy, Austin Nichols, Xzibit — great cast, really, really great cast. It's kind of like "American Beauty" meets "American History X." It's something special."
