Slim King

Brandon K. Hampton as “Slim King”

Actor Brandon K. Hampton stars in Illville as Slim King.

This young drug lord is the main distributor of the devastating new drug called floaters. Being a drug distributor is all he will ever be; it’s all he wants to be, and he loves it.

Having inherited the drug enterprise from his dead father at the ripe age of 12, Slim feels a sense of power from supplying drugs to his workers who are usually 5 to 10 years older than him. He has little patience when it comes to doing business and will pressure his workers around the clock for money-making gains.

Slim is also an unpredictable hot-head who suffers from little man’s syndrome. If you ever cross him, he’ll go as far as sacrificing himself just to destroy you. He isn’t a good fighter; he isn’t a good shot; but, he controls the majority of the drugs in Illville, and he uses his power to manipulate people into doing his bidding.

Though Slim’s a hot-head, he’s someone who values family and business. And his actions may seem evil, but his intentions are always good. To him, family and business are one in the same, and he is willing to die for both.

Brandon K. Hampton does a marvelous job portraying Slim King in this film. And this role was definitely a change for him; it’s the first time in his acting career that he’s played a character with a strong alpha male presence.
