Mel on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno & Backstage


Mel made a visit to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Friday night to promote Get the Gringo. He talked about Lucia, cooking and even joked about the recorded rant Joe Eszterhas made public. Interestingly enough, he mentioned the film had a theatrical release deal, however, he chose to premiere it via DirecTV.

Mom told me about this at the last minute, but I was out and couldn’t post an update or watch the show. She found Mel was very charming–goes to show, regardless of the controversy, the man can still make you laugh!

Remember, Get The Gringo is available starting tomorrow. If you’re a DirecTV subscriber, check it out and let us know what you think in the comments below or e-mail me!

Just an FYI: I won’t be able to update as often for the next several weeks since I’m heading to the Cannes. There’s so much research and preparation that needs to get done on top of work and personal obligations. Oy vey! There may be more news and promo for Get the Gringo popping up, so I will try to update if possible. Sometimes life gets in the way of maintaining this site and I’m unable to post as much as I would prefer, but I really love it and wouldn’t want to let the site die off. To think, in just a few months, it’ll be 5 years old! Hopefully, I can make things better and more enjoyable for you guys in the near future.
