Guest

Total unknown who became instantly famous when Miramax, amidst much fanfare, bought his script for The Boondock Saints and hired him to direct. The deal disintegrated under the weight of his ego, and he became infamous when the documentary Overnite caught him in the act of being…horrible. The Boondock Saints eventually got made and became a cult hit on DVD. Duffy has just released The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day.
