Tony Taylor -- Actor/Musician/Model
A Face to Face Interview With Tony
In simple words he is a man that has been tested through life like myself. Tony is an actor, musician, composer that has played detective roles with so much character.
We met a local Restaurant in Northern New Jersey. The man has a cool personality and can swag it, as he might say. He was kind enough to travel from Staten Island and enjoy a delicious dinner with me. He will be featured on our next filming project along with other actors.
It was a nice afternoon of May. By 4 p.m.we were having a cool conversation. To my surprise, he had been exposed to similar tribulations from life. Some were so personal that we could make a movie out of real events.
Okay Tony, you were hungry and now we can start this interview live...
Joseph, you don't play, man! I'm so full! Thanks for the invitation!
You are welcome Tony! When did you start this in this business career? Was this a need, a hobby or a call at a later age?
Let me see Joey. I went through changes in my life like I told you. I guess it was at the end of 2009. I feel like it was a call and need!
Let's make it more original; If you ever get a call from Eddy Murphy for a sequel to "another 48 hrs," "Big Momma" or a new feature film, which one would you accept first and why? Or you just go with the flow?
48hours would be great, because I would enjoy doing a police role
Are YOU very religious or you have your own religion. Is there really a God up there?
I'm not religious; I'm in relationship with God! Religion brings confusion and division. Yes, there is a God!!
Tony with us...!

Have you ever thought of directing a feature film of your own??
I think it would be matter of time, but yes, brother! You just see it in the long run. Good question my friend!

Yes indeed! Competition is in high demand. Don't depend only on others. You make it HAPPEN!!
Do you think families are not as close as we used to be, back then? Do we blame technology?
Yes, no one takes time to have a dinner on the table. And yes, I blame technology to a certain point; could b yes and no
We must monitor our own blood, our OWN children and teach them balance.

Talking about the love of playing those detective characters? Is it in the family?
