Sometimes hanging out in Starbucks can lead to interesting conversations... like with David Barroso
I met David Barroso (Actor/Producer) in Starbucks yesterday because he noticed that I was editing digital film of Kim Harrison on my laptop and we started chatting about his latest project 8-Ball (2011). According to IMDb it's "A crime drama about the lives of four friends living in Queens and their fateful encounter with a mobster. Events from 10 years ago in the pool halls of New York resurface and haunt Ramone's new life in modern-day Hollywood."
David plays Ramone.
I'm thinking that sounds pretty cool... He's really nice to boot. I shall have to wade through the thousands of David Borrosos' on Facebook and see if I can find him. He wanted my business card but I gave them all out at New York Comic Con at the Transformers Panel (sigh). We swapped info so I guess we'll catch up eventually... ;-)
Here's his bio: "David Barroso (also known as David Barroso Jr) had several nicknames growing up. Known as David Villa he grew up in Astoria, in the Borough of Queens, New York City, with most of his family members. David is the youngest of 11 children. David went to Long Island City High School, then went on to Queensbourogh College. David started acting at H.B. Studios when he was really young and started boxing to stay off the streets. Later on went to NYU Master Class and the Actors Studio. David has an autobiography that is looking for a publisher, title "Falling down but Not Staying Down". The story is about his battles from the days of growing up in Queens, NYC, drinking, drugs to being an athlete to being in prison to the person he has become today."
Here's to wishing Dave finds his book publisher and that his movie's post-production goes well.
