‘Daddy’ directed by and starring Gerald McCullouch is on the big screen in LA now – don’t miss it!
I’m so excited for Gerald McCullouch and all who are involved in the film Daddy which kicked off a limited run at the Arena Cinema Hollywood last night.
Gerald, who we know best from the BearCity films, the acclaimed webseries Hustling and from his longtime recurring role of Bobby Dawson on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, not only stars in the film but directed it too.
Gerald recreates his stage role of an aging golden boy newspaper columnist. Dan Via wrote the script of his play and again plays a brilliant and witty attorney who is the golden boy’s BFF.
I saw these two in the play at the Hudson Theatre in Hollywood back in 2011 and they were magic together. I look forward to seeing the movie tomorrow night!
‘It has been like nothing I’ve ever experienced before in my career,’ Gerald told me this week. ”To have been living with Dan Via’s story since it began with it’s NY premier to it’s LA transfer a year later and through the film adaptation process and pre-production/production/post production to the year of festival travels and screenings it’s become a part of my life the way nothing has prior.’
‘Crazily enough, Dan’s story first came to me as a play in NYC that I was cast in after I shot the first BearCity film. In fact between the BearCIty franchise and Daddy, I’ve ping ponged between those two projects for the last six years – and longer once BearCity 3 comes out this summer.
Here’s the synopsis: Sportswriter Colin McCormack thinks he has it all — a great job, a steady stream of hot younger guys, and a best friend whose devotion he takes for granted. But when a charming and mercurial intern sweeps him off his feet, Colin sees a chance for something more: A family of his own. What he discovers instead is a shattering secret that may cost Colin everything — and everyone — he holds dear.
‘It’s such a unique and powerful story which I’ve never seen before,’ Gerald says. ‘It’s humor and political resonance along with it’s themes of family and friendship seem to have really resonated with the audiences and each screening has been very rewarding.’
