Have you ever heard the saying, “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere”? Frank Sinatra (and more recently, Jay-Z) famously sang those words about the Big Apple, and they couldn’t be more true. And in the rough and tumble wilds of New York City, sometimes you’ve got to do more than wait tables to make a living— evidenced by the film “The Extra Man,” which debuts tonight at the Sundance Film Festival.
The film, which stars Paul Dano, Katie Holmes, Kevin Kline and John C. Reilly, follows Paul’s aspiring playwright character Louis, who moves to New York to pursue his dreams but ends up supplementing his day job at an environmental journal by escorting Upper East Side society women at night. But it looks like Louis has his eye on a paramour much closer to his age. Check out our exclusive clip below in which Louis meets his coworker (and potential love interest?) Mary (Katie) for the first time.
Will you be seeing “The Extra Man” when it hits theaters later this year?
