It comes around every year and most every Empire Records fan understands its historical importance. Yes I'm serious. The epic cast of this iconic cult classic will obviously go down in history, but Maxwell Caulfield as Rex Manning will forever be a favorite.
Rex Manning was the fictional pop star in the 1995 movie Empire Records. On April 8, "Oh Rexy, you're so sexy" Manning has a scheduled appearance at a struggling independent record store that the staff (which includes Renee Zellweger and Liv Tyler) is desperately trying to save from turning into corporate chain.
Hit Google up for "Rex Manning Events 2017" to scope out for any fun events in your area or local cinemas showing Empire Records this weekend.
Also, I may be biased but anytime you can catch our boo Johnny Whitworth as "A.J.", it's highly recommended. xo
