Why did you choose this project and what's compelling about this role?
Well, this is a sequel to "Christmas in Canaan" (2009). I just loved the script on the original movie and loved doing that film. I agreed to do a sequel but only if the script was as good and raised the bar even further. I didn't want to do a sequel just for the sake of doing a sequel. It took a year and a half, but they did it. It's the story of a struggling family in Canaan, Texas. I play Daniel Burton, a widower raising three children in the late 60s, early 70s. There's a lot of racial divide,
