Ken Garito, the up-and-coming young actor (Crash) who co-stars as bartender Tommy Z in Frozen Pictures' movie comedy, Cloud 9, has gotten international attention this week as Kate Moss' co-star in her scandal-mocking Virgin Mobile phone commercial.
In the ad, Ken plays an eager agent named Kyle-- a far cry from his down-to-Earth, bet-placing bartender at the Cloud 9 strip club, where Burt Reynolds assembles the world's sexiest beach volleyball team.
Ken has great chemistry with Burt Reynolds, and holds his own when the laughs are flying in Cloud 9, which is out on Fox Home Entertainment DVD on January 3rd.
Cloud 9 is written and produced by Brett Hudson and Burt Kearns of Frozen Pictures and Academy Award winner Albert S. Ruddy.
Godfather producer Al won his second Best Picture Oscar for producing Million Dollar Baby. Paul Haggis, who wrote the picture, went on to write and direct Crash-- and discovered Ken through his great work in Cloud 9!
And with an all-star ensemble cast that includes D.L. Hughley, Paul Rodriguez, Angie Everhart, Gabrielle Reece, Gary Busey,Tom Arnold, Tony Danza, Kenya Moore, Patricia De Leon, Ric Overton, Pat Finn, Jeff Altman, and Bruce Bruce—among others-- expect Cloud 9 to "crash" DVD records in the New Year!
And expect to see a lot more of our favorite bartender, Tommy Z-- we mean Ken Garito!
