Michael Eklund has done a hell of a job making a name for himself by playing characters that aren’t easy to forget. His role in the 2011 Xavier Gens’ directed film The Divide was pure insanity, and he stole the show in 2013’s The Call. Not allowing himself to slow down, in between appearing in AMC’s Bates Motel, Eklund appeared recently in not only the Jen and Sylvia Soska slasher sequel, See No Evil 2, but also in Poker Night (now in theaters, VOD and iTunes), a horror mystery that gives viewers yet another memorable Eklund performance.
