MAHONEY'S ADVENTURE - I used the same name of my comedy series character. Wrong choice.
The mistake I made was keeping the last name of my comedy character Mahoney and changing his first name into a more masculine name, Will. People would get that name confused. It was my fault for not coming up with a different name for the start of the action film characters. I would go to local stores and gas pumps around Syracuse and get recognized as Mahoney. That's it. I ran all the comedy episodes, "Mahoney's Adventure" and "Concrete Skies" on Time Warner Cable for over 5 years. But the movie turned out decent for my first action film attempt.
