Will made his movie debut in 1995 by playing the role of Donny Lindstrom in a television movie Kidnapped: In the Line of Duty. He showed his incredible acting skills in movies like An American Daughter, King of Carolina,‘Just Add Water, Radio Free Albemuth, Battle: Los Angeles and Killing Kennedy.
In particular, Killing Kennedy! Will Rothhaar played Lee Harvey Oswald, Kennedy’s assassin, in the movie. When asked about his experience, he remarked “Oswald has always been vilified in a huge way but no one has gone into intimate moments in his life. I was definitely eager to get into it.” He further claimed that preparing for Oswald’s made him empathize with one of the most hated people in US History, “I came to the realization that he did not grow up with a lot of love around him. His father died two months before he was born of a massive heart attack and his mother moved him around a lot. That screws up your foundation.”
Killing Kennedy was premiered on National Geography Channel. Sources claim that the real event based move “broke records for the network”, with an astonishing total view of 3.4 million. Take it from ones that rarely tune into National Geographic, the movie is a must watch.
