Chicagoan Michael Rooker, who starred in Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, is currently featured in the audacious new Super.

Michael Rooker, who grew up in Chicago as a developing actor and had his first breakout role in the locally-filmed Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, is currently featured in the audacious new film “Super,” starring Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page.

Rooker plays Abe, a henchman to crime boss Jacque (Kevin Bacon), as they try to thwart the meanderings of vigilante costumed heroes named the Crimson Bolt (Rainn Wilson) and Boltie (Ellen Page). Raw, poignant and strangely probable, Super is a unusual take on a comic book situation, as if they decided to take those familiar heroics into a desperate real-life situation.
