John DeLuca: An Aquatic Awakening
When I headed out to see Staten Island Summer, I thought there might be a resulting post about it's lead actor Graham Phillips. I love Graham on The Good Wife and have caught some of his singing and stage performances thanks to Youtube. But although I liked SNL's Colin Jost's script, the funniest moments are given to all the characters that surround Phillips including Gina Gershon, Vincent Pastore and SNL stars Will Forte, Fred Armisen, Bobby Moynihan, Cecily Strong and most notably Michael Patrick O'Brien.
Another actor getting the limelight was the adorable John DeLuca. Graham observes at the beginning of the movie that girls, and older women, go for guys like Anthony, played for the most part shirtless, by DeLuca. DeLuca perfects the accent the stereotyped buff, but not too bright, hot Italian. Some of you might recognize the 29 year old actor from his various television and movie roles including Disney's Teen Beach movie series.
DeLuca is an appealing actor who I know we will be seeing more of, including the soon to be released Chalk It Up. You can check out an interview with John about his role in Staten Island Summer at silive.com HERE:
