Your new movie All American Bikini Car Wash - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?


This film is a great throwback to the films like Porky’s and Revenge of the Nerds. It's a film for all ages and it’s a fun ride! I play Big Tony, the mobster who is shaking down the car wash for… what gangsters always are after… money.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of you can we find in him, actually?


When it comes to playing a mobster, he comes naturally. But I approached the Big Tony role a bit differently. Hitting the comedic elements but with the possible fear he could go Tony Saprano at any moment. Nimrod Zalmanowitz (our director) [Nimrod Zalmanowitz interview - click here], really gave me room to “go for it” and bring the character to life. When I would see him smile after takes, I knew he was getting what he wanted. The director is happy, then I’m even happier.


Your first thoughts when you heard the title "All American Bikini Car Wash"?


I was like I have to be a part of this film even if I have to wear a speedo. I’m glad I didn’t however, lol. Seriously, So refreshing to make a film that is going to make people laugh and escape to the fun world we created.


How did you get involved with the project in the first place?


My manager submitted me for the role, I got an audition. I was fortunate to get a call back and then was hired. I fell in love with the writing, so I had to have the role and I was very excited to be cast as Big Tony.


Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


Perfect atmosphere. The crew was so down to earth and worked their tails off. Nimrod set the tone and everyone followed. The cast rocked! Everyone was prepared and hit their marks out of the park! The only issue I had was I wanted to keep playing the character, so when shooting ended I’ve been pushing for a sequel.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


I recently played an 80’s cop taking down an escort ring in the show Tabloid, played a plumber on Lifetime’s My Haunted House. But currently looking for my next role. Cough cough… sequel.


What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


I was bit by the acting bug in my youth doing plays in elementary school. After playing the role of Tom Sawyer in 4th grade, I knew I wanted to act. But I turned to sports and wasn’t until my senior year in high school when I saw the film A Few Good Men that I officially declared I was going for it. Went to Syracuse University to study Film and Drama then moved to Los Angeles after graduation.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to All American Bikini Car Wash?


Brendan Nagle, Heath Centazzo in

All American Bikini Car Wash

I worked a lot on stage at the beginning. Did about 10 commercials for Labatt’s Blue Beer and was getting small roles, really building that resume. But it was about 3 years ago that I really started to work regularly. Playing mobsters, cops, murder suspects, and did I mention mobsters? It’s actually my favorite role to play. Besides All American Bikini Car Wash, one of my favorite roles I play is Paulie in the short film Scorpion. It premiered in London at the Raindance Film Festival last year.


How would you describe yourself as an actor, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?


Dedicated, prepared and eager to collaborate with the director. Like I said earlier, if the director is happy then you are doing your job. Technique wise, I prepare by taking apart the script and really understanding where my character is, what does my character want, and what obstacles may appear. But you always have to leave room for changes and adapt to what the director wants.


Actors (and indeed actresses) who inspire you?


Steve McQueen is my all time idol. Tom Cruise, Roy Scheider, Robert De Niro, Matthew McConaughey, Chris Noth and Morgan Freeman.
