Will Rokos: Monster’s Ball Writer

November 1, 2010

Monster’s Ball writer Will Rokos had an experience the other day straight out of a movie. You can find out exactly what I am talking about plus learn all about Will too.


In what is truly an OMG story the writer of the movie Monster Ball, Will Rokos was hit by a subway car in New York City on Saturday, thankfully the very lucky man survived. According to the New York Post Will was looking into the subway tunnel to see if the train was coming, it was and he was thrown back onto the station platform. He was found by a fellow subway rider barely conscious but alive. Rokos is currently listed in critical but stable condition at New York’s Bellevue Hospital. That is truly awful and hopefully a lesson to all New Yorkers including myself, don’t get too close to the train track!

He sure is lucky to be alive so lets talk about what we know about Will. In terms of a biography we know and it sure isn’t much, that Rokos is an actor however he is best known for co-writing the film that earned Halle Berry an Oscar. Will was also nominated for an Academy Award for the movie that same year. His other acting credits include Shadow Boxer, Trespassing and Galactic Gigolo. His other writing credits include penning the story for Dante’s Inferno video game.

Will Rokos is Monster’s Ball writer who in all honesty basically cheated death over the weekend and I am not exaggerating. That my friends is pretty much all I know about the man who is obviously a very talented man. If you have any information on Will that you would like to share please feel free. In the mean time here is hoping he has a fast and speedy recovery so we can see his talent shine though again.

    What?! looking if the train was coming? You can easily see the headlight in the tunnel. Weird.
