It is freezing, and the light is fading from the harsh Philadelphia sky. In a cemetery on the outskirts of the city, a car creeps past the field of unkempt graves, then jerks to a stop. "There it is, Hank Gathers," the photographer yells. In the back seat, Aaron Crump awakens and shakes his head. The search for his father's grave had taken so long he had fallen asleep. "Hurry, Aaron, we're losing the light," the photographer calls.

When Stephen Lang was offered the role of Harry Black--a dockyard strike organizer who's tormented by his latent homosexuality, then becomes sexually compulsive--in "Last Exit to Brooklyn," the actor experienced "initial revulsion." "I literally threw the script across the room," says Lang. "I was frightened of that part. (Black was) a truly stupid man. His negativity was just something that isn't ordinarily a part of me. I'm much more upbeat and happy-go-lucky. I was very uncomfortable with it."
