Bud Cort 1970 in The Traveling Executioner
When you have had something so beautiful, there is no need to have anything else as beautiful. - Being kissed by Bud Cort
In the vein of Leaving Las Vegas, except the drug of choice is sex… A serious character-study of one man’s descent into sex addiction and how it affects his family and friends. John Ledger is a handsome, 45-year-old, Southern Californian car salesman, who chases the demon of sex addiction while trying to maintain a normal life with wife, Mary and their teenage son, Brian. John has multiple affairs, romps with prostitutes, and various risqué sexual encounters which feed his uncontrollable lust for “The Big O”. He loses touch with reality, gets arrested, and moves further away from his family and any type of spiritual life. A friend tries to help, even a local Priest, but John’s denial is stagnant until he’s beaten by a street hustler and hospitalized. Then comes an eye-opening stint in a sex addiction recovery program. John Ledger is not a pretty story, however it’s one many men and women have in common yet never reveal. In reality, like alcoholism, sex addiction is a disease that destroys the human psyche. This is a very real problem in today’s society which affects more than 40 million people worldwide and is rarely addressed.

John Ledger, currently in pre-production according to IMDB, seems to be Bud Cort’s newest project. One of only two people currently cast (alongside Tom Sizemore as the title character), Bud Cort has been cast to play the priest who tries to help John get back on the straight and narrow.
