In case it wasn’t hot enough, Jon Bernthal is coming to raise the temperatures since Showtime just released the trailer of ‘American Gigolo’, the series that reimagines the film by paul schrader that catapulted the career of Richard Gere.
This time the role of Julian Kaye (Kay in the original film) falls on the shoulders of Bernthal, whom we have recently seen in ‘The Williams Way’ and ‘The City Is Ours’, not without some changes proposed by David Hollander (‘Ray Donovan’).
15 years later
Well, not so much changes… but it is a sort of alternative sequel to the film, as the series sees Julian getting out of prison 15 years after being incarcerated for murder and trying to get back on the Los Angeles sex industry scene. all while tries to find the truth about who framed him and, incidentally, reconnects with his true love, Michelle.
Gretchen Mol plays the love of Bernthal, both lead a main cast that has Rosie O’Donnell, Lizzie Brocheré, Gabriel LaBelle, Leland Orser and, as a guest star, Wayne Brady as Lorenzo, Julian’s best friend and mentor.
‘American Gigolo’ opens in the United States on September 9. In Spain, it is expected that we will see it through Movistar Plus +, but it has not yet confirmed its arrival.
