In an indie movie appearing at film festivals, actor Evan Jonigkeit plays the role of David Halleran, MD, a young medical resident at midtown Manhattan’s Roosevelt Hospital on the night of Dec. 8, 1980, when police brought in a victim of four gunshots.
While Halleran and others worked to save the man’s life, someone looked through his wallet for identification. The driver’s license read: John Lennon.
Halleran is now a colorectal surgeon at Upstate and former president of the Onondaga County Medical Society. The movie, called “The Lennon Report,” was filmed last year in New York City, and Halleran has a cameo.
