Matt Haley Makes Posthumous Film Appearance

matthaley companies.com

Restaurateur Matt Haley will be making a posthumous appearance on film.

He was killed in a motorcycle accident earlier this year in India.

But a short film by Rob Waters and his wife, Erin Tanner, features Haley in the short film, ”The Interview” as a fictional restaurant owner named Mr. Harris with his own dark side.

Haley had a history of drug addiction and prison before becoming a successful restaurateur and a humanitarian.

Acting was something that Haley apparently said he wanted to take a shot at.

Waters said he wrote the role to make Haley’s wish come true.

At the time Haley was battling prostate cancer and was undergoing radiation treatments.
