Famous Actor-Turned-Author Sean Penn Releases Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff

Few are the number of people who have never heard the name, Sean Penn. It was in an episode of “Little House on the Prairie in 1974 that Sean Penn made his acting debut, and from that time leading up until recent years, film critics have seen him in numerous movie, garnering many different awards, including two best actor awards and various other Academy Awards nominations. Though best known for his many roles in movies, Sean Penn is also a celebrated director of both movies and music videos. Penn is also considered to be an influential political activist and war correspondent. Bob Honey who Just do stuff is an interesting story about an average man with an unusual job to kill off old people to help the environment- a very controversial plot.

The list of projects Penn is and has been involved in is extremely extensive, and recently he has added yet another title to that already long list: author. Although Sean Penn has already released many news pieces, opinion articles and interviews, the book “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” is his first release as a published book author.

Having been questioned about the drastic change in his line of work, Penn claims it is nice to have something that is all his, something that he alone made and be beholden to no one else. In an interview with Vogue magazine, Penn states that for his foreseeable future, aside from the possibility of directing one particular film, he see’s writing as what will take the forefront as matters of importance go for him, and he does already have plans for his next book. He states that acting is not part of that vision, for the time being.

“Bob Honey Who Just Do stuff” has received its own acclaim and criticism, but is being compared to the likes of Hunter S. Thompson and Charles Bukowski’s writing styles. Coming from someone whose niche appeared to be in first the acting, then directing fields it begs the question “is there anything this man can’t do?”
