An Actor and Hitman for Hire

-Joseph Tornatore as Victor the Hitman in action.

From award-winning director Zhenya Kipperman comes the tentatively titled movie short called Sketches from Moscow and Philadelphia. It can be viewed at For maybe the hundred and twentieth time of his illustrious film career, talented Giancarlo Esposito steals the show here. I try and hold my own chasing pedigree talent in five scenes as a hitman.

Of cinematic value only to me, this link shows the first time I die on film. Wielding a Beretta handgun, I try to go out with a bang. I have one line in the short and a couple of guttural responses while getting clobbered over the head with a cinderblock. On death and dying on film, a hardheaded guy like me was bound to take his lumps.
