Emmy winner Michelle Stafford (Nina Clay, General Hospital; ex-Phyllis Summers, The Young and the Restless) has been quite the busy woman this past year, and her efforts are about to pay off. In addition to delivering stellar work in Port Charles, the actress wows in the indie flick Durant's Never Closes, which is set to hit theaters in January 2016.
The film costars Tom Sizemore, who's appeared in classics like Natural Born Killers, Heat, and Saving Private Ryan, as the character of Jack Durant, a restaurateur, ladies' man, and mysterious gentleman who maintained many connections to the mafia. "From the backwoods of Tennessee to the world of Vegas at the time of Bugsy and finally as the owner of his famous steakhouse, Durant is a legend and dynamic character, at once charming, powerful and dangerous," states the production's official website. "This film tells his story during one day at his restaurant."
Stafford plays Durant's love interest, Suzie, alongside stars Peter Bogdanovich (The Last Picture Show; Paper Moon) and Jon Gries (Napoleon Dynamite).
Watch the trailer for Durant's Never Closes below, and then check out the film's premiere at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona, on Thursday, January 21.
