On this photograph, I pay tribute to one of my favorite Hollywood actors, Mr. Johnny Depp.
Also coming (soon) August 19, 2019 to a movie theater near you. Click the trailer listed at the end of this story and have a taste for the best action/comedy film to come out of Hollywood this year.
My feature performance in ‘El Coyote’ comes as a surprise to me also.
As my agent called me on one cold Arizona morning, it was November 2018 I may add.
I was barely getting out of my comfy king size bed and pouring me some hot chocolate, when Debora M (My agent) calls me from her fancy Scottsdale AZ office and says, ‘get your ass out of bed and go audition to be put on a restaurant scene at this Italian joint as an extra’.
Long story short, after meeting the producer and having a couple interactions with my Italian dialogue, he said, forget about the ‘being an extra’ on this movie. You will be ‘Francesco’, my nephew on the film. Here’s your dialogue, go home, we start shooting Monday.
I believe this happened on a Tuesday or so.
In conclusion, having played Francesco, the nephew to the lead actor in this film, provided me with another great addition to my acting resume. Not only because it may be my finest acting work, just as so far, Michael Saquella, who’s made movies with Burt Reynolds and Raquel Welch also puts his best foot forward as the lead, add that we are now part of this BIG family, what else do you want when you are a young actor? finessing and mingling with some of the finest people in the industry, right?
Not bad to start off my 2019 I must say, and as family would have it (My Uncle Spencer) which in order to protect one of our own, has the complete Italian mob descend on the USA/Mexico border, to take on the most powerful cartel in America. That is the synopsis my friends, plain and simple.
President Trump would be proud to know this film was certainly made, right here in Arizona and between some California and Mexico spots, we are making America Great. That’s all I can say for now. Keep watching rom-coms and local movies made right here in our back yard.
I am also so VERY excited for the red carpet events coming up and of course, the premiere of this fantastic film. A complete album with photos of the ‘behind the scenes’ will also be posted soon.
