Any Day Now was written and directed by Travis Fine and is the story of a gay couple in the 1970s and their struggle to keep custody of a down syndrome child who they have become fathers to. It was shot in Los Angeles in May/June 2011.
Myself and Garret Dillahunt play the gay couple, and the amazing Isaac Levya is Marco. I was immediatley drawn to this incredible story. It really is a beautiful one and confounds your expectations and challenges your prejudices about what a family means. I was also keen to do the film because I am sad to say that things haven't really changed all that much for same sex couples in the arena of adoptions since the film was set. There are certain states where it is possible but in most it is still utterly impossible to do without going elsewhere, usually abroad, or through surrogacy. So the activist in me and the artist in me were both conjoined in perfect harmony in the character of Rudy Donatello.
The film is doing so incredibly well. Thus far it has won the audience award at the Tribeca, Provincetown, Seattle and Outfest festivals. I have won Best Actor awards from Seattle and Outfest.
It will be released on december 14th 2012
