Terry Mayer photographed Chicago actor Craig Harris in Darien, Wis., today.
He’s appearing in “Southern Comfort,” a short film produced by a group of DePaul University students.
Among Harris’ credits are the 2007 film “Fred Claus,” which starred Vince Vaughn.
Harris also voiced Jackson ‘Jax’ Briggs in two “Mortal Combat” films.
The film, set in a family diner, is being shot at Deb’s Country Cafe on Highway X, one block east of Wisconsin Highway 14 in Darien.
