Hunter Carson Invaders From Mars
Carson’s first acting role was in the 1984 film Paris, Texas, portraying the character of Hunter Henderson. The film Paris, Texas was adapted for the screen by his father, L. M. Kit Carson. Hunter Carson received strong reviews for his performance in the film. He then starred in the 1986 remake of Invaders from Mars, where he co-starred with his mother Karen Black, and appeared in the 1988 comedy drama Mr. North, which also featured his Paris, Texas co-star Harry Dean Stanton. He played Bud Bundy in an unaired early pilot of Married. . . with Children, and appeared as Peter McMichaels in the 2001 fashion drama film Perfume. He played a “crazy killer boyfriend” in the 2010 horror film She’s Crushed. He co-directed with Alejandro Itkin the 2013 feature film Single in South Beach, a romantic drama starring Kevin Sorbo. He also directed the short With It (2004), about a failed hitman, which Andrew Dansby says echoes the style of his Paris, Texas director Wim Wenders.
