Director Robert Rodriguez burst onto the scene with his ultra-indie El Mariachi, and he was in high demand throughout Hollywood. While his 1995 action classic Desperado is considered his studio debut, the filmmaker also made Roadracers, this 1994 homage to 1950s movies, which makes its Blu-ray debut April 17. This 50s drama features some of the first big screen performances from David Arquette, Salma Hayek, and John Hawkes, along with a fantastic turn from William Sadler, who plays Sarge, the cop who is constantly trying to bust David Arquette's Dude Delaney. I recently had the chance to speak with William Sadler about playing this hardened cop. Take a look at what he had to say.

This came out the same year as The Shawshank Redemption, so I was curious if you shot Roadracers before that?

William Sadler: If I'm not mistaken, I think I shot this before I shot Shawshank. I'm not certain about that, »
