This week we’re wrapping up “Choose” -- my first time shooting in New York. I’ve been visiting this great city for 30 years, and have performed stand-up comedy here countless times, but of the near 60 films I’ve worked on, I never had the pleasure of working and “living” in the City That Never Sleeps.
I’m staying in an AMAZING loft in SoHo, and after shooting 14 hours a day, it feels almost magical to come “home” to this beautiful New York digs in the heart of the groovy part of downtown. In fact, I would be remised if I didn’t thank a dear friend, Hank Azaria, for letting me live in his INCREDIBLE New York home while I shooting “Choose”. I call it The House that Apu Built, and for those Simpson’s fans out there, like myself, it’s fantastic!!
“Choose” is an indie, psychological, thriller, with lots of twists and turns, and is more cool scary than creepy scary. Although, there is a handful of creepy moments…It was directed by Academy Award winning Visual Effects genius, Robert Legato, and co-stars Katheryn Winnick, Nick Tucci and Richard Short. I have high hopes for this little jewel, and will “try” to keep you all posted on its release.
I have a few other cool projects in the works, and will definitely let you in on more details soon. Happy Holidays to all, and to all, a healthy, peaceful and FUN ’09!
