Franky G Latino Actor Making Moves

Franky G started his career in the award winning indie film called 'Manito' which won best ensemble cast in 2001 at the biggest film festival in the world - Sundance Film Festival. From there it opened at the Tribeca Film Festival, hosted by Robert Deniro.

After that the film went to hundreds of film festivals world wide. This jump started Franky's career landing him in three Hollywood films that year, Confidence starring Dustin Hoffman, Ed Burns, Rachel Weisz and Andy Garcia, 'Italian Job' starring Mark Wahlberg, Ed Norton and Charlize Theron, and 'Wonderland' starring Val Kilmer.

He was soon approached by John Wells (creator of 'ER' and 'West Wing') and offered a show starring Franky as Jonny Zero, which played on Fox 5. He was the first Latino to star in his own drama series at that time.

Franky G is a muscle of a talent. He is a talented actor whose skills are just as enormous as the guns on his arms.

Franky G is in the award-winning film called 'Tio Papi' starring Joey Dedio, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Kelly McGillis and Frankie Faison. This wonderful film is about love and family and making a buzz out now.

From that film, the producer Joey Dedio saw something in Franky and asked him to be the star of his new suspenseful thriller '36 Saints'. Franky plays a cop on the search for a serial killer on the loose of the streets of NYC.

"His passion shows through his work" says Frances Lozada, who is not only the co-producer of the film but his wife who is also an actress. "Franky is a hard worker and is really focused on his career. His work tells it all." says Frances.

Being a Latino, he has to work harder in making that difference and breaking barriers. He is an actor who wants to produce more innovative thought provoking films.

"Working with Active Fox productions has been a dream", says Franky. "They are a great company to work with. Hopefully we can produce films together."

Franky throughout his career has written a script called "The Streets Are Watching" which he hopes to get produced very soon.

Franky G has three films coming out this year, Tio Papi and 36 Saints are both going to be released on Sept 6th 2013 in theaters. Blowtorch starring Billy Baldwin will be released Nov 15th, 2013.

Please check out these films and let's follow Franky's career.
