Now playing in theaters is director Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys. The film, which is based on the extremely popular stage musical, tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, chronicling the group’s rise in the 1960s with such hits as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Walk Like a Man” and subsequent troubles that came with their success. The film stars John Lloyd Young, Vincent Piazza, Erich Bergen, Michael Lomenda, Renee Marino, Mike Doyle, and Christopher Walken. For more on the film, watch the trailer or these clips.
At the New York City press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Vincent Piazza, who plays Tommy DeVito. He talked about landing the role, his month-long process of preparing for the film before the shoot, how he was the only principal cast member who didn’t come from the show, Clint Eastwood’s style of directing, deleted scenes, the final season of Boardwalk Empire, upcoming projects, and more. Hit the jump to watch.
