Hello everyone! The Shelter is a movie I made with John Fallon. John has been reviewing and critiquing films for about 20 years for and with Joblo.com this was his first time directing and he also wrote the screenplay.
The movie really is about how fragile and irrational we humans are. Betrayal, lies, deceit, lust, infidelity, selfishness, guilt and self loathing are the demonic forces at play. I seem to be helpless when confronted by these deadly sins and peoples reactions to my weakness is far from logical but motivated by their own demons.
From the very beginning this project was a work of passion on Johns part and once I read it I realized it would have to be on my part also. His production staff and his crew ‘the Holbrooks,’ were all very inspired too. I can’t wait to see the trailer which should be online soon.
I have done a musical comedy with Joe Piscopo and Paul Sorvino. HOW SWEET IT IS is the title and is directed by Brian Herzlinger and produced by Suzanne DeLaurentiis, the same who produced the movie I did with Rod Steiger, A MONTH OF SUNDAYS. My character is Mike Sorino. I play son of Paul Sorvino. Paul is a mafia Don, Joe Piscopo is a down and out producer who owes my father gambling money. When Paul finds out who Joe is he forces him to produce a show for him.

Thank you Comstock for releasing Sea Tremors all across Japan.
This was a real adventure in film making. Three months we were in Indonesia, two months in Jakarta and one month in a small village on the coast where we could see Krakatoa the famous active volcano in the near distance. There was even an earth quake that through me out of bed one morning. I thought I was in a nightmare or hallucinating.
I hope all of our friends in Japan enjoy the film, it is really a fun traditional monster movie where an ancient breed of sea creature is released from a fossilized sea cavern by the underwater earth quake, that crossed with stone age magic makes for a fun story.

ACT NOW and we can make it happen!
Dear friends, thank you all for the well wishes over the Holidays. Let’s hope and pray Japan will calm down and stop shaking so much. I wish you all the best.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my friends and fans around the world and especially Japan. 2012 was a challenging year for many but , I believe the best is yet to come. God Bless everyone and may we all find time to appreciate all those around us, friends and family.
Now that I am becoming familiar with social net working.
Road to Hell seems to be gaining momentum recently, I still have not seen it, but it will receive it’s second best picture in these independent festivals. How Sweet It Is will screen in Santa Monica before the AFM, I have yet to see it also. Uwe Boll’s movie Bailout: The Age of Greed, which is another of Uwe’s pet movies will be screened also I believe. I know some people feel no movie can do honor the Streets of Fire but I am hoping Road to Hell will get enough notice that major studios will take another serious look at me as an actor and leading man. It was an interesting concept, that any participant in war will be damaged in his spirit some how and the only chance of surviving your private demons is through the love and forgiveness only a family can provide. War, killing scientists chemically as well as emotionally and psychologically damage a man and that study is what attracted me to the movie Road to Hell. Thank you all for your loyalty and appreciation of my work.

Sorry for the long silence. I have been in the process of finding that next project. My dear friend Brad Furman has been working very hard trying to cast me in his new movie but movie making now is very complex with many factions weighing in on the smallest decisions. I am waiting to hear even today.
Snap Shot the movie Eric Etebari directed is almost finished but I have yet to see it.
How Sweet It Is (trailer) also is still in the editing phase but I will see the director this week and will get an update.

For all you loyal fans that have joined Starfield Audiences, I thank you. The reboot could be a lot of fun and I feel a more open dialogue with Phillip Jackson and feel we will work together well.
At this point in my career it is important to work with people that want to work with me. The audition process is really the beginning of finding the true nature of the character there fore it is important the director and producer know me and my past work. While pursuing the role in Runner Runner my three audition tapes might have been by different people until Brad said that is it, that is what I need. But then other players might have different feelings about the character.
No matter what happens with Brad’s movie whether I do it or not he has proven a rare and true friend and fellow artist in this process. I never thought I would have a friend so true this late in my career and life.
Please forgive my neglect, I just am always hoping to have something great to announce to you all.
Albert Pyun is still working on Road to Hell, he tells me Cody is no longer described as a serial killer. I hope to see it soon. Cyborg the rise of the slingers is still being promised to go soon. We shall see and you will all be the first to hear.
Please know I hope and pray Japan’s geology will calm down and we can all relax again.
Best to all of you and thank you all for your loyalty and support
