He's not exactly the kind of barber you ask to just take a little off the top.

In the upcoming thriller The Barber, Scott Glenn stars as the title character, a barber hiding some deep, dark secrets.

The uniquely grizzled, magnetic Glenn is a part of the badass canon thanks to standout turns in the likes of Silence of the Lambs, Training Day, Backdraft, and The Hunt for Red October.  More recently, you probably caught him as Daredevil's mentor Stick in the latest trailer for Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil series.

The Barber follows John McCormick, played by Chris Coy (AMC's The Walking Dead), the son of a Chicago cop whose life was unraveled by his search for a notorious serial killer in the late 90s.  Twenty years later John, absolutely determined to finish his father's work, arrives in a small town where Eugene Van Wingerdt (Glenn) is the local barber.  John is convinced Van Wingerdt is, in fact, Francis Visser, killer of 17 women. 

In order to deliver him to justice, John claims to be an aspiring killer and requests that Van Wingerdt take him as his murderous protege, setting the stage for an unbelievably tense, twisty thriller that's full of surprises right up until the end.

Glenn and Coy carry the story, but the cast also includes legendary character actor Stephen Tobolowsky (Groundhog Day), Olivia Taylor Dudley (Transcendence), Jessica Lu (MTV's Awkward), Kristen Hager (SyFy's Being Human), and Max Arciniega (Haywire).
