John Mark Huckabee — son of presidential candidate Mike Huckabee — posted, then removed, a clip on his YouTube page of his acting in a raunchy, never-released, low-budget film.
“You got to have a thick skin,” the character played by John Mark Huckabee says to a female character in one scene, as he smokes a cigarette from behind a desk. “And a willingness to do whatever it takes to succeed.”
“Do you not think there’s not an A-list actor out there that’s never had to show some tit or suck a little dick to get a part?” the character says. “You know what I mean, sweet cheeks?”
After TheDC approached the video’s director about the scene this week, the clip was pulled from YouTube. But The Daily Caller was able to save the video before it was taken down.
A 55-second clip of the scene was posted online in 2013 by ProConEntertainment, the production company operated by Gov. Huckabee’s 38-year-old son. The same YouTube channel hosts the video “Experience Israel with Governor Mike Huckabee.”
“Charlie Muse,” as the film was called, was never finished or released, director Christopher Alvarez of Loophole Media told The Daily Caller when reached by phone.
“What made it so experimental was that we weren’t going to show Charlie Muse,” Alvarez said of the film. “Charlie Muse was the audience. So we were going to put the audience through Charlie Muse’s eyes. And basically, what they wanted to do is show the not-so-positive side of agents in Hollywood.”
“So that was kind of the direction. It was a neat project. It just didn’t get finished,” Alvarez said.
A Huckabee campaign spokesman declined to comment.
But Huckabee has publicly spoken out against forms of entertainment he finds inappropriate. Earlier this year, the former Arkansas governor memorably criticized President Obama for letting his daughters listen to Beyonce, whose lyrics, he suggested, were not appropriate for children.
John Mark Huckabee has been involved in a number of productions: he played a “vile crime boss” in the bloody Christmas flick, “Christmas: A Revenge Tale.”
According to an online biography, “John Mark Huckabee is a graduate of the Arkansas Film Institute and was honored with a PIKO Fellowship in Screenwriting, a prestigious six-month writer’s symposium held in British Columbia Canada.”
“Working as both a writer and a producer, John Mark Huckabee has spent the last number of years honing his craft; writing, co-writing, and collaborating on a number of screenwriting projects, as well as partnering with others to produce feature film and television projects through his newly formed company, ProCon Entertainment,” the biography states.
