Joel Spence’s Maker’s Mark on the Rocks

Mouth Feelings

The Wedding punch gang cracks that red wax and sips some small-batch Kentucky bourbon. Joel is a fish out of water playing the heavy in a film about the life of Jesus just outside of Louisville, Kentucky. All that fish needed was a friend and, well, let’s just say Jesus came through with some Maker’s. Speaking of friends, Julia transforms five butch theatre dudes into five men in touch with their feelings. Wow.
