Of course, it helps that the story her film is based on is one of his most playful.
Delaney who is best known for her Emmy-winning role on NYPD Blue stars in You Know They Got A Hell Of Band, which is one part of the eight-part TNT mini-series, Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King.
The story follows a married couple on a road trip who take a wrong turn and wander into Rock and Roll Heaven, Oregon where the dead, or undead, icons of rocks past trap the living permanently.
Delaney says theres lots of inside jokes to go with Kings scary satire beginning with the opening sequence, which features a red Mustang named Sally instead of Christine, and a huge truck like the deadly 18-wheeler in Pet Semetary.
The references to Kings past work were especially enjoyable to Delaney, who admits she a big fan of the author.
Shes also a big fan of her co-star, Steven Weber, and says, Our chemistry is so good that, even as we argued during scenes, were laughing constantly between each take.
Nightmares & Dreamscapes debuts July 12.
