Trash Talking

The fulll length feature film, The Nail has made its way into The Philadelphia Film Festival with a couple of premier showings later this month. The Phiiladelphia Inquirer is rumoring its sale to Twentieth Century Fox. The trailer is posted on You Tube.

William Forsthye opens the theatrical trailer and I play his bar bouncer in this film. The beginning of the street fight that I acted in as a tough guy starts at 1:37 seconds when Tony Luke Jr. and Leo Rossi exchange words. Over three hundred film credits of experience goes into the scene that I join. I had to play a tough guy but when this much talent surrounds you it is easy to become a shrinking violet. How often does a prolific actor such as William Forsthye tell you alone to go take out the trash on film...with Leo Rossi, Billy Gallo and Tony Luke Jr. all in frame?
I am not trash talking here. I made the final cut!

Chin is up, just don't want to get ahead of myself. I emailed the director. Hope he emails me back whether I made the final cut.
