Benjamin Busch - A Marine And A Beast

Ok. Benjamin's not a beast, but he is involved with Patrick Swayze's new A&E TV show, The Beast. NPR had an interesting article about Mr. Busch today. I wasn't familiar with his background at all, so I found this pretty interesting:

"Benjamin Busch is a man with many dimensions — and multiple resumes. One charts his service in the U.S. Marine Corps, from Infantry Officers School in Quantico in 1993, to commander of Delta Company, serving in Iraq, and his promotion to lieutenant colonel in 2007.

Then, there's his other resume — as a technical advisor, director, and actor, from Party of Five to The Wire to the new TV show The Beast, which stars Patrick Swayze.

He'll need to start a third resume soon, for his writing. He's a contributor to Harper's magazine. The February issue includes his essay "Bearing Arms: The Serious Boy at War."

To continue reading this article and to listen to it, please go to this page on NPR's website.

If you're not familiar with The Beast, here's an extended version of the trailer:
