Kings Park Local in Hollywood Flick

Kings Park's Steve Gagliano, owner of local tattoo studio acts alongside Colin Farrell in action-thriller 'Dead Man Down.'

An East Northport businessman from Kings Park has taken a turn in Hollywood.

Steve Gagliano, owner of Tormented Souls Tattoo in East Northport, plays an Albanian gangster in the new action-thriller "Dead Man Down" starring Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, and Terrence Howard. The film, released March 8, is about a thug (Farrell) with a secret past who goes head to head with a woman (Rapace) seeking revenge for an attack.

Gagliano acts alongside Farrell throughout the movie until he is shot and crushed by a truck. He said of Farrell, "He was self-centered, but to give him a little credit, a lot of times when actors are preparing for a movie they try to get into the role and they are constantly thinking about it."

Gagliano gave Terrence Howard a better review: "He was awesome, so down to earth and grateful. I can't even tell you what a great guy he is. He's somebody you'd really like to be friends with. He kept thanking everybody. It was a totally different end of the spectrum."

This is Gagliano's first principal role in a Hollywood movie. He has previously acted as an extra.

It was definitely a good movie and the fact that Steve is in it makes it even better. He plays a significant role I. The most climactic scene of the film. Definitely go check it out and done forget to bring your ticket stubs in to tormented souls to save on your next tattoo. Steve is an amazing artist and worth the trip to see him for sure.

Yes, get more tattoos. It will make it easier for me to identify you as a poor employment choice when you arrive for your interview.

Congrats Steve! This is very cool! Although I am not a fan of tattoos, it is rather elitist to make such a statement, "Dr." Remulak. To each his own!

Wow, nothing like jumping to assumptions. Who would want to work for a judgmental prick like you?

Dr. Remulak, you'll be happy to know I just looked up ignorant in the dictionary and your photo is still there.

You would miss out on some really bright employees by dismissing them because of a tattoo. I would say that makes you a pretty poor excuse for an employer!

Dr Remulak is not even a real Doctor he is just a wanna be!

I think there is a lot of that going on around here. Dr Geoff Clarke out of Smithtown by way of Stony Brook Hospital rings that same bell.

Speaking of ringing a bell: Remulak was the planet the Coneheads came from. Coincidence?
