Kickapoo graduate Sterling Macer stars in Where the Crawdads Sing film

Brad Pitt may be the most famous member of Kickapoo High School’s Class of 1982, but he’s not the only alum to enjoy a long career on the silver screen.

Pitt, who heads the action-packed “Bullet Train” that hits theaters Thursday, shared a graduation stage 40 years ago with friend and fellow thespian Sterling Macer Jr.

Macer recently enjoyed the July premiere of “Where the Crawdads Sing,” a mystery drama that has since earned more than $53 million at the box office.

An adaptation of a book that sold more than 15 million copies, Macer plays the role of Jumpin, a man who periodically serves as a parental figure for the film’s orphaned central character, Kya.

“I’ve never been part of a project that had such a big following before the movie was shot,” said Macer, who now lives in Los Angeles. “Because the book was so popular.”
