Did You Know?


Actor Steven Molony (Alex) is a devout method actor. He immersed himself so deeply into the role of Alex that he found himself having in-character dreams. He also lost seven pounds over the course of production. The cast and crew, having met him on set, realized they had to somewhat remake friends with him after the production, as they found they had become close with the character, and not actually with the actor portraying him.

I attended a screening of Pinching Penny and was blown away by the performances. Lauren Wertz as Penny was totally believable; Tim Meyer was the witty and fun sidekick; Ginny Glaser was the perfect femme fatale; and Steven Molony as the main character, Alex, was utterly mesmerizing, all the way from the clever hilarious opening to the undeniably tragic end. He definitely has great presence, a lovely voice (!), and talent oozing out of his eyeballs. The four main characters interact honestly, which kept me interested all the way through. Wow...the message is clear: Money isn't everything, and one bad thing leads to another! I think this movie WILL be noticed for its introduction of raw new talent to the movie industry. I predict Dan Glaser will be a famed director who reminds us of Aronofsky and Ritchie, but who develops his own unique tradition. As for Steven Molony, I predict he will carve his place in movie star history at the TOP. He is amazing, and I want to see MORE!
