I have my friends' offspring.
This is my Michigan friend's son, Jacob. And his dog, Hogar.
Hogar is happier than his face allows him to express.
Jacob is an actor.
Jacob as Werner Kreilig in It Came From Mars.
But the heart and soul of the show reside in Jacob Hodgson, who plays Werner Kreilig, the radio show's sound effects man who is not-so-secretly in love with Dolores and the butt of George's anger towards the pending world war. Hodgson's performance is sweet, charming and innocent, and his German accent is flawless throughout the performance. ~Donald V. Calamia, Encore Michigan
All the actors are outstanding, but Hodgson, playing a young German immigrant in a time when Germans were viewed with suspicion, often threatens to steal the show — particularly during the second act, when fear causes Werner to act on his feelings for Delores. ~Performance Network offers a great view of "Mars"
