After following around Blue Oyster Cult for 20 years as part of their road crew, Jimmy Testagross (Ron Eldard) is cut loose, and economics force the BOC to steamline their operation. At 40, Jimmy has no idea what to do with himself. He returns to his hometown of Queens, New York to visit his elderly mother (Lois Smith). She’s gotten senile and probably needs his long term care. Jimmy struggles with the idea of adult responsibilities. He comes across an old bully (Bobby Cannavale) and Nikki (Jill Hennessy), Randy’s wife, who dated Jimmy in high school.
Roadie is an indie film written and directed by Gerald Cuesta and Michael Cuesta. It’ll be out in theaters on January 6th, 2012.
