For those of you planning your end-of-the-year new movie schedule, you might want to take in the David O. Russell film, “American Hustle.” You will see a familiar Hartford face.
WTIC 96.5 FM radio personality Gary Craig, who also has a bent for art and acting, is playing Jerry Catone, a mobster in the movie starring Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper. Bale plays con man Irving Rosenfeld, who along with his seductive British partner Sydney Prosser, played by Adams, is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso played by Cooper.
Be sure to watch for the bar scene with a row of men in tuxedos. Craig is the one with the glasses, sitting next to Jack Huston, of “Boardwalk Empire” fame, who plays Peter Musane in the movie.
The movie opens Dec. 18.
