Class Notes Noteworthy Cue the band! Hollywood came to Louisville to flm part of the movie "I Am Potential," an inspirational story based on the life of Patrick Henry Hughes, 10A, who captured the nation's attention by playing in the UofL Marching Band, despite being born with a rare genetic disorder that left him without eyes and physically disabled. Jimmy Bellinger plays the part of Hughes, while Burgess Jenkins ("Remember the Titans," "Nashville") portrays Hughes' father, Patrick John Hughes, and Judge Reinhold ("Beverly Hills Cop," "Stripes," "Fast Times at Ridgemont High") takes on the role of UofL's marching band director, Greg Byrne, who was critical to providing Hughes a chance to fulfll his potential. Filming took place in July at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium and the movie is slated for release in 2014. 62|LOUISVILLE.EDU
