Jay Giannone

Actors are the best to photograph. Jay Giannone's shoot was spectacular. We met up at his home in Southie and spent the afternoon together. His energy and personality is remarkable. I did not know that world renowned photographer John Huet found Jay at Fenway Park scalping tickets one day when Jay was just a teenager and ended up casting him in several print ads for Chuck Taylor. Jay has since become an ambitious actor... he had a part in Gone Baby Gone as 'Steve' in the bar scene where he was telling Patrick (Casey Affleck) - about Helene (Amy Ryan) the night Amanda (Madeline O'Brien) was kidnapped. Jay is currently in " what doesnt kill you" it stars Ethan Hawke, Mark Ruffalo, Amanda Peet, Donnie Wahlberg, and Brian Goodman... its in the boston film fest next week. Jay was also in The Departed, Entourage and Pacific Blue, as well as many other films. - It was so funny that we ran into Joey McIntyre's dad at the cafe! Jay has a new film coming out called "Scalpers" and you can see more info about this film at
