‘Shades of Blue’ Actor Gino Anthony Pesi on Self-Diagnosing a Rare Disease

‘Shades of Blue’ Actor Gino Anthony Pesi on Self-Diagnosing a Rare Disease
Gino Anthony Pesi has starred in many police procedurals, but the “Shades of Blue” actor’s life feels more like an episode of “House” — and a far-fetched one at that. Four years ago, he was suffering from an illness that caused weight gain and depression and baffled doctors. Pesi spoke with Variety about his role on “Blue” and his journey of self-diagnosing a rare disease.

What were your first TV roles like?

I got my first network gig on “CSI: Miami.” It was a couple of one-liners, but it was terrifying because it was in front of over 100 extras.

But now you seem so confident alongside stars like Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta.

I was confident on “Shades of Blue” because a lot has happened to me in my life since then. Any concern I had wasn’t about being opposite Ray and Jennifer, it was about am I going to be able to give them what

Watch: ‘Fifteen Digits’ Is a Crime Set Up That Only Comes Around Once a Lifetime

Why Watch? In order to help sell his novel, author Nick Santora became a director and created this short. Of course it helps that he’s a television and film writer with connections to a lot of talented people, but it’s a fascinating new method where the literary and cinematic worlds collide. Beyond being a curiosity, the film itself (an excerpt of his book brought to life) is damned good. Jimmi Simpson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) is excellent with his droopy-eyed drama – offering the heist of a lifetime to a guy that works in the bowels of a law firm (Gino Anthony Pesi). He may be low on the totem pole, but he’s got access to a lot of potentially pricey information. I spoke with Santora about the short and his writing career – a conversation you can listen in on here. What will it cost? Only 7 minutes. Skip

To Sell His Novel, Author Nick Santora Became a Director

When best-selling author Nick Santora wanted a way to get fans and entertainment industry officials excited about “Fifteen Digits,” he became a director. The result is a short film pulled from the book featuring Jimmi Simpson and Gino Anthony Pesi. Of course, Santora has a background – writing for shows like The Sopranos, Prison Break and Law and Order. He also wrote Punisher: War Zone and created the show Breakout Kings. He’s firmly entrenched in a world where everything is caught on camera, but he’s using that experience in a unique way when it comes to wearing his literary hat. We talk with the newly minted director about how turning to filmmaking to sell a book (and himself) has worked out. Plus, Jack Giroux and Rob Hunter face off in the Movie News Pop Quiz and then debate the merits of Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus. Download Episode #137 On This Week’s Show: Movie News Pop Quiz
