Popcorn Sutton from "Moonshiners," whose actual name is Marvin Sutton, is featured in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Popcorn Sutton ("Moonshiners") is the most famous of modern moonshiners. At one time, his liquor was so valuable that people often used it as currency. Because of the nature of the business, moonshiners are not typically renowned. Popcorn, on the other hand, was a larger than life character who was a master of self promotion. He was the author of "Me and My Likker," an autobiography and textbook on how to make moonshine. He was also the feature of many documentaries, including "Hillbilly: The Real Story" and "The Last One."

Unlike every other moonshiner in the world, he chose to live in his little self-created spotlight. Ultimately it led to his arrest and conviction in 2009. Facing cancer and an 18-month prison sentence, Popcorn chose to take his own life instead of dying in jail.
