Video Interview: Actor/Producer Andy Garcia (CITY ISLAND)

GATW Guest Writer

Andy Garcia

When I sat down to interview Andy Garcia, the well-known actor shook my hand and said "Hi...Andy." It was a surprising and very cool moment with an actor I first watched when I was seven years old, sneaking in a viewing of BLACK RAIN (thanks to HBO). It was completely natural talking to him, and as you would think from that introduction, things went quite smoothly with the affable actor talking about his latest film, CITY ISLAND which he stars in and also produced.

Check out the interview after the break.

Editor's Note: I kept the beginning and very end in the interview because it was too adorable to take out. It just shows how nice and classy Andy is.


Andy Garcia talks CITY ISLAND with GordonandtheWhale.com

Official Synopsis:
"Set in a quaint fishing community on the outskirts of New York City, City Island is a hilarious and touching tale about a family whose comfortable co—existence is upended by surprising revelations of past secrets and present day lies. Vince Rizzo (Andy Garcia) is a lifelong resident of the tiny, tradition—steeped Bronx enclave of City Island. A family man who makes his living as a corrections officer, Vince longs to become an actor. Ashamed to admit his aspirations to his family, Vince would rather let his fiery wife Joyce (Julianna Margulies) believe his weekly poker games are a cover for an extramarital affair than admit he’s secretly taking acting classes in Manhattan. When Vince is asked to reveal his biggest secret in class, he inadvertently sets off a chaotic chain of events that turns his mundane suburban life upside down. Inspired by the exercise, he decides to bring his long—lost ex—con son Tony (Steven Strait) home to meet the family, and it soon becomes clear that everyone—including his college student daughter (Dominik García—Lorido), teenaged son Vinnie, Jr. (Ezra Miller), charismatic acting partner (Emily Mortimer) and drama coach (Alan Arkin)— has something to hide. A perfect storm of deception, half truths and confusion makes Vince and his family members realize that the truth may not set them free, but it is easier to keep track of than all their well—intentioned white lies."

    I adore Andy Garcia and love his all pictures. those are really incredible.Seems strange to me that all the non-English speaking world seems to be getting to see this movie before us. Pity I can't speak Portuguese because I feel like jumping on a plane and making it to Brazil to see this film as I am going stir crazy waiting for it to be released. Hey,maybe it has sub-titles,now if I could only get some time off work.
