Edward Furlong won an award for his performance in the new drama

Edward Furlong, the young actor who at age 14 rocketed to superstardom after snaring a lead role in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), is again a name on casting wish lists again after a head turning performance in the new independent film Matt’s Chance.

Released on DVD this month, Matt’s Chance features Furlong, now 36, as Matt, a down-on-his-luck loser who on his birthday night discovers his fiance, Jessica, in bed with another man. As Matt learns the true depth of Jessica’s betrayal, he begins a downward spiral revenge quest that pits him face to face with a wide array of characters including an eccentric pawn shop owner (Gary Busey), an aging stripper (Margot Kidder),and a barber with an agenda (Lee Majors).

Furlong is winning raves for his performance as Matt, while the film has gone on to snag a fat allot of awards including Best Feature Film at the JamFest Independent Film Festival, Best Dramatic Feature at the Canada International Film Festival, Best Narrative Feature at WorldFest, and Best Ensemble Film at the Las Vegas Independent Film Festival.

Furlong, whose earlier credits include Pecker and American History X, won Best Actor at the Las Vegas Independent Film Festival for his new film.

Matt’s Chance, from Seattle-based filmmaker Nicholas Gyeney, is now available on DVD.
