    He was recently in New York to attend the HBO New York International Latino Film Festival for the world premiere of 'Love, Concord' directed by Gustavo Guardado, in which he plays the lead role of Gerry, a class clown who meets Melinda (played charmingly by Angelina Leon), a pretty Latina bookworm and his world is flipped upside down in this sweet funny story that is the first feature set in Concord, California.

    Robert De Niro & Eric Roth Reteam To Bring 'The Good Shepherd' TV Series To Showtime

    If there is one movie in the past few years this writer feels was underrated and dismissed too easily, it's Robert De Niro's 2006 effort "The Good Shepherd." Running way ahead of more critically acclaimed fare like "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," De Niro's film was an equally cold and sober look at the spy game, which quietly but effectively explored the moral and emotional toll it takes. For a while, he had been talking up a sequel -- and was even dreaming of a trilogy -- but considering the film cost about $80 million, only grossed $59 million domestically and topped out around $100 million internationally, it's no surprise Universal wasn't in a hurry. But it seems the project hasn't left his desk, and now has found some intriguing new life.
