Stuntman custodian leads double life
February 27, 2009
CHICAGO — Kevin Sorensen has been a custodian at Oak Park and River Forest High School for 20 years, but it is his job as a stuntman that draws attention, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Sorensen, an easygoing father of two, tends to downplay his second career as a stuntman, including his role in "The Dark Knight," the latest installment of the Batman movie series, the story stated.
In response to people calling him a movie star, Sorensen said: "No, I just do stunt work. It''s just another job that somebody''s going to do, and that I just happen to love doing. When you''re a kid, you play cops and robbers, and with this, you get to continue doing that. You shoot guns and crash cars and blow things up."
Sorensen has worked on two dozen films, including "Groundhog Day," "The Lake House," "Batman Begins" and "My Best Friend''s Wedding," the story noted.
Sorensen is one of 52 "The Dark Knight" performers who were recently honored as the best movie stunt ensemble by the Screen Actors Guild, the story added.
