7.8.16: Stephen Hunter's Swagger, Coming to a TV near you - This Week on Gun Talk Radio
Mandeville, LA - It's a new venue for Bob Lee Swagger, bright sights for your firearms, and more, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.
Author Stephen Hunter's book Point of Impact, and character Bob Lee Swagger, debuted on the big screen in 2007 in the movie Shooter with Mark Wahlberg playing the lead. Swagger's character is now making the leap to USA network television on Tuesday, July 19th (10/9 C) with Hunter's hero as the lead in a TV series by the same name, this time, played by actor Ryan Phillippe, with Wahlberg as an executive producer. "USA is the perfect home for Shooter," said Amy Powell, President, Paramount Television. "Stephen Hunter's Bob Lee Swagger is a heroic, iconic character and there is so much more of his story to explore in series." Hunter visits with Tom to talk about Shooter, and why Swagger is such a popular character.
