My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I’m a fan of your acting. My favorite movies that you played in were Footloose, Apollo 13, and Taking Chance. Footloose was a great musical comedy drama movie about a young boy named Ren McCormack who moves to a small town to try to understand life and has to deal with the town that bans music along with dance. In Footloose, I thought you did an excellent job making Ren McCormack a great character with different unique traits like trying to fit in when other people including students at school get judgmental about him being different, not giving up his passion for music including dance, and trying to understand how friendships work. Also in Footloose I liked on how you made Ren have creative dance moves to songs like Let Hear it for the Boy, Footloose, and many other songs. Apollo 13 was an awesome historical movie about 3 astronauts Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert, and Fred Haise where they aboard Apollo 13 to travel to the moon but has to try to survive when the space shuttle has a malfunction. In Apollo 13 I liked on how you made Apollo 13 command module pilot Jack Swigert a great historical figure because I liked on how you made Jack Swigert work together with Jim Lovell and Fred Haise to find ways to survive in space and to figure out how to make it back to earth. Taking Chance was an interesting biopic movie about Lt. Colonel Michael Strobl who has to escort a deceased marine PFC Chance Phelps to his hometown for a funeral. In Taking Chance, I liked on seeing what it was like for people who served in the military including who served in the war or family along with friends of a fallen soldier goes through losing someone in service. Also in the movie I like how your character Lt. Colonel Michael Strobl would work hard to understand life when things get hard for him and have the courage to do a noble thing.
Besides your acting career, I truly appreciate on how you are an activist on supporting civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes, expressing the need for diversity in the entertainment industry to accept people who are different, and raising awareness about the need to fund the arts to make society a better place. Mr. Bacon, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thought, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your role in biopic along with historical movies helps me continue my motivation to learn history. In history I like learning about how famous people or different individuals (women, minorities, and people with disabilities) who work hard to make a great difference, learn the need for Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and have health care to help people who can’t afford insurance or have pre-existing conditions get the care they need, and many others. Also when I was young I use to watch Footloose to see Rem wanting to make a great difference for the community to get interested in music along with dancing and I really liked some of the songs like “FootLoose”,“Lets Hear It For The Boy” and many others.
I strongly believe that you are a very talented actor. You do such an excellent job making your characters have different unique traits. I like on how you made Footloose a great movie with a great message about friendships. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and continue my interest in learning history. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, doing an excellent job acting along with making a great impact on society, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to make a great a difference.
