It was my pleasure to interview a busy working actor, one of my favorite character actors Mr. Arye Gross. During our conversation Arye spoke on how an actor prepares, the difference between the medium of Film, TV and Theater and much more. He is a guest I definitely wish to have back on MOVIE BEAT. Fans and actors will definitely want to tune in to this interview.
Arye has numerous credits to his name. Some of his films include the upcoming Grey Gardens for HBO Films and an independent feature Harvest (Ibid Films). You have seen him in Minority Report, Big Eden, Gone in 60 Seconds, A Midnight Clear, Mother Night, The Opposite Sex, For the Boys, Coupe De Ville, Tequila Sunrise, The Couch Trip, The Experts, and Soul Man
