Mark Hengst is a blond bombshell with a severely fun sense of humor. He can look amazing while chopping up sorority girls and speaking Hungarian like he did in Anchor Bay's hit horror DVD release The Cook, or he can hunt down a deranged murderer while having perfect hair and nice arms like he does in Diary of a Serial Killer. Hecan do a killer Jack Sparrow impression that makes Johnny Depp look like a douche bag, and his baby blue eyes are dreammmmy. He'll be in the upcoming horror filmLive Evil with costars Tiffany Shepis, Ken Foree, and Tim Thomerson as well as Death Racers and2012 Doomsdaycoming out later this year. And, most wonderful of all, this talented and sexy star is our Mr. July.... Enjoy, ladies!!!!!Where did you take your wife on your first date? Starting out pretty personal with the wife question huh?. Well if you must know, Met at the Polo Lounge. She took ME back to her bungalow where nine young virgins, two midgets (little people) and a crate of ferrets were waiting. We then played ping pong, drank wine coolers, ate pop tarts and raw cabbage and then fell asleep in each others arms on hole 8 (the one with the alligator and windmill) of the Goonie Golf miniature golf course in Van Nuys. I shot par.
Mark playing the uber-sexy vampire Benedict in Live Evil, which makes him look like he's in a music video You star in The Cook as a sorority-girl-killing Hungarian culinary expert. Can you tell us yourfavorite recipe? Spicy Brooke Rolls. I am a huge sushi fan. Prefer sticky rice over meat as I am no longer a beef eater after that meaty film.
Mark is notorious for harassing young actresses on the set of his films and forcing them to stand close to him. Shameful. "Hengst" sounds like a Kraut name. Sie sind ja richtig frau Heidi Martinuzzi. Hengst means "stallion" in German. Mark means "God of War" in Latin. German Stallion God of War....scary no? FYI, my porn name is Blacky Cherry.
That bitch Tiffany Shepis finally gets what she deserves when Mark loses his patience in between takes on the set of Live Evil. Can you tell us about your role in Live Evil? Do you realize you're working with the best of the best of the B-movie low-budget scene in that film? In Live Evil, I have the role of Benedict the vampire being chased cross country by a priest (Tim Thomerson). Oh and by the way, Tim Thomerson, Ken Foree, Tiffany Shepis may be the best of the best B movie low-budget scene in your best of the best B-movie low-budget scene book, but they are HEROES in my book of the best of the best B-movie low-budget scene book of horror B-movies...and horror low budget ...B...book.. budget scene best horror.. book...thank you very much.
Mark has been described as "pointy" in his portrayal of the murderous chef in the horror film The Cook. We love actress Penny Drake, your co-star in The Cook and the sexy redheaded stripper in Zombie Strippers. Do you have any embarrassing stories about Penny Drake? If not, could you make one up? Penny and I had been secretly dating for the past 12 years. Kind of a Huston/Nicholson thing going on and broke up on the set of The Cook due to creative differences and her inability to communicate (lots of words, no meaning) and my inability to express myself to her and others including but not limited to my use of vulgar language around the craft service table. Penny also drinks a lot and it spilled over into our relationship. Never let anyone tell you that drinking is a victimless crime. I am a victim and Penny is a crime. We're still friends.
Mark makes another woman uncomfortable on the set of The Cook. Who would you rather play in a TV movie: Rick Schroeder in "Silver Spoons and Country Tunes:The Ricky Schroeder Story" or Christopher Atkins in "Pirate in a Loincloth: The Christopher Atkins Story" and why? Definitely Ricky Schroeder, but in my new screenplay "Lonesome Lagoon". This would allow me to work with Robert Duvall and Brooke Shields who I not only admire as human beings but as overpriced actors as well. Calls to their agents have been made. No response as of this interview.
Mark in his very first modeling job: in a CandR ad in 1991. What a difference a day makes, Markl!
Mark's cast photo from when he was on soap opera "Days of our Lives". Mark played Leo, the illegitimate son of Rhona Morganstar, the matriarch of the Llancaster family clan. He disappeared after the underground city of Telemur was buried under rubble from the development of Aesop Buchaller's new condo designs, only to reappear 2 seasons later as his own evil twin. There was a rape trial, and then I don't know what happened because this was when i was in high school and I could only watch the show during summer vacations because it was on in the afternoons. Diary of a Serial Killer, Death Racers and2012 Doomsdayare all genre movies Mark has out this year and next. Diary of a Serial Killer is a horror thriller by Director Andy Hurst. Shot last winter around LA, it involves a killer who's main inspiration for killing is famous serial killers of the past including Jeffrey Dahmer, Richard Ramirez and Ed Gein. I have the role of Detective Robert Dean trying to track him down. Should be out soon. (Check out the website)
Mark asChristopher Schroederin "Lonesome Lagoon", about a cowboy stranded on a desert island with Brooke Shields and Robert Duvall. Just finished Death Racer last month. This futuristic thriller stars The Insane Clown Posse and wrestler Raven and is about a race organized by the Governor and the Mayor, Warden Jr, played by me. Has a Mad Max/Death Race 2000 feel to it. Currently in post-production. 2012 Doomsday is an end of the world thriller now out onDVD and stars Dale Midkiff (Pet Semetary) and Cliff DeYoung (F/X). I have the role of Matt the Paramedic.
Mark is very particular about choosing driftwood for his whittling hobby. Mark has his own workshop where he hand carves horse-head bookends out of interesting pieces of wood he finds scattered near his Lancaster, California cabin. "The wood tells me what it wants to become," says Mark. "I'm just the messenger." Mark has been interviewed on www.whittling.com and his work has been featured in Wood CarvingIllustrated and Woodcarver Online. Mark's sister is a fashion designer who owns House of Hengst clothing in San Francisco, California. What's your favorite piece of the Fall 2008 line from House of Hengst? And do you think the models are too skinny? Why or why not? Hey, keep my sister out of this! I really like the saran wrap teddy. Doesn't leave much to the imagination but oh does it keep a woman fresh.No, seriously, I am very proud of what my sister. The Hengst line is now available everywhere and I may wear something on the red carpet at my next screening. Good stuff. Isn't full figured the new skinny? I have lost track.
Mark worked as a stand-in for Brad Pitt in Ocean's 13. He's very very proud of it, though he was never actually in any scenes in the film at any time. You've worked with some female directors - notably in the tragic drama The Devil Wears Pirates. What do you notice most about female directors? (and don't say their boobs) Their ass.
Mark when he was on "Hawaii 5-O" You're funny. Ever think of sticking more to comedy than to dramatic roles? Do I look fat in these jeans? You mean, let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it's me, I'm a little fucked up maybe, but I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I'm here to fuckin' amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny? You said I'm funny. How the fuck am I funny, what the fuck is so funny about me? Tell me, tell me what's funny!
No you don't look fat in those jeans although you may want to try the saran wrap teddy instead.
