4/26/2017-R.I.P.-Jack Gargaro

-I got a call from Brian Hewitt earlier with the news that fellow actor Jack Gargaro passed away from a heart attack this morning. I believe services are this coming Saturday. I worked with Jack in “Rise Up & Fall”, “Transformation” & “Locked In” by HEWITT FILMS. He was a big part of my heading down the path of Acting (pic taken at the premiere of MS CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST where that moment actually took place). This was back when music was still my primary focus. Acting was just something to do here and there on the side between CAROLINE BLUE music video shoots. πŸ™‚ Jack said I have a “presence”and really encouraged me to seriously become an actor. His words were on my mind, among other things, when I finally did make the switch. In the beginning years down the path of Acting he would repeat his encouragement, and even when I was fully down the path, he was still very kind and encouraging.

-“Transformation” is currently unreleased. It’s a shame that he couldn’t see the final cut, but I was told he did see the full finished rough edit so that’s good. Here’s a clip of me working with him on the short film “Locked In,” which was originally planned to be included on “Empire State of the Dead.”

-In addition, Brian posted this short / slide film that Jack himself had made.

-I’ve thanked Jack in the past for his part in my acting career. I wish we could have done more projects together. R.I.P. Jack… 😦
