Gary and Larry Lane are actors, models and twins from North Carolina who now live in Hollywood, California.  However, their dream came true at Dollywood.

The brothers, both shunned by certain family members for being homosexual, wrote a screen play for Dolly Parton.  The two always appreciated Parton's nonjudgmental message on sexuality.

For five days Gary and Larry Lane drove a RV nicknamed "Jolene" from their homes in Hollywood to the parking lot at Dollywood.

During their Pigeon Forge visit, the two twins hand-delivered the script to the fabulous Dolly Parton.  Their whole journey was captured on video for Hollywood To Dollywood.  The documentary has been screened at more than 50 film festivals and won 25 best documentary awards.

Television legend Leslie Jordan, also a huge Dolly Parton fan, makes an appearance in the film.

Currently, Jordan and The Lane Twins are in Knoxville promoting The Knoxville Film & Music Festival.

Hollywood To Dollywood will be screened at the festival Saturday, June 15.  The documentary will be shown inside the Bijou Theatre at 1:30 p.m.  Tickets are $10.

More information, including ticket prices and dates, is located on the film week website.

The Lane Twins and Leslie Jordan sat down with WBIR entertainment reporter Stoney Sharp Tuesday.  The interview is attached above.
