When I met Eden Marryshow ("Nurse Jackie") almost a decade ago in acting class, I knew he had what it took to become a super successful actor. Basically, he had what it took to do whatever he put his mind to. Not only was he amazingly talented but when he stepped out of his five-minute roles, he was one of the nicest men I had ever met in my life. Charming, considerate, kind, caring, and handsome to boot. How do men like that exist? They do and I was set to team up with him for a scene in class when I left. We both had dreams, we were both hard workers, and now, all of his hard work is paying off with the national theatrical release of his film "BRUCE!!!!" Not only does he star in the film, which revolves about a broke ass scam artist who finds his heart in the midst of one of his biggest scams, but he also directed it, garnering the ABFF Grand Jury Prize for Best Director.
Co-starring Jason Tottenham ("Quantico") and Mle' Chester ("Vinyl"), the film will be released on a national basis this Friday, March 15th in 17 states/ 24 cities at AMC cinemas. This is the movie to go see for your Friday night entertainment and not because Marryshow is an amazing person but because this film, just from the trailer alone, will leave you crying laughing. Why? Because we all know a Bruce. We have all met a Bruce. You may even be a Bruce. To find out where you can catch the movie and to learn more about, go to https://www.brucethefilm.com/. Remember, hard work, dedication, passion, and love (and driving around SXSW in a Bruce covered van) can make all of your dreams come true! See you in the theater!
