The officials at the Little Brown Jug have learned that actor/director Emilio Estevez will be at the Delaware County Fairgrounds during Jug week to shoot portions of his new motion picture 'Johnny Longshot.’'
The full-length harness racing movie will star Estevez who will be playing the lead character, John West, who, after a career as a thoroughbred jockey, turns his sights to standardbred racing.
Estevez, 50, has a long list of film credits including the Mighty Ducks, The Breakfast Club and Young Guns. Estevez is a lifelong fan of horse racing thanks in part to his father, actor Martin Sheen.
"I've been a racing fan my whole life. My dad used to take me to the track when I was a kid, and then I became a fan on my own." (Delaware County Fair)
The film is expected to be released in 2014.
