Nicholas Turturro On His New Film “Overrun,” Future Projects, New York, Adam Sandler & More

In the new film Overrun — due out on Blu-Ray, DVD, Digital and On-Demand outlets on August 17, 2021 via Strike Back Studios — former extraction specialist Marcus Lombardi jumps into a life of crime when his sister is revealed as an informant on underworld kingpin Ray Barren. Lombardi agrees to do an impossible job for Ray to clear his and his sister’s name. He is ultimately put on a collision course with mobsters, dirty cops and plenty of assassins who make things even harder for him.

Overrun stars Omid Zader (3 Days to Kill, Vice> Star Trek: Into Darkness, Johnny Messner (Tears Of The Sun, Believers, The Whole Ten Yards), Bruce Dern (The Hateful Eight, Nebraska, The Peanut Butter Falcon), William Katt (The Greatest American Hero, Carrie The Other Side Of The Wind), Nicholas Turturro (The Longest Yard, NYPD Blue, BlacKkKlansman), Jack Griffo (Seal Team, The Thundermans, Alexa & Katie), Christopher Troy (SWAT), Haley Strode (Gangster Squad) and Chelsey Goldsmith. It marks the feature film directorial debut from filmmaker Josh Tessier (The Mandalorian, The Walking Dead: Red Machete).

The aforementioned Nicholas Turturro was nominated for numerous awards for his work on NYPD Blue in the 1990s. The rare sort of dramatic actor who also does well with slapstick-comedy roles, Turturro has had scene-stealing performances in multiple Adam Sandler films. You may have also seen him appear on plenty of other acclaimed network shows, including Blue Bloods and Third Watch.

On July 26,2021, I had the pleasure of speaking with Nicholas Turturro via Zoom, as embedded below. Besides Overrun, we talked about his New York roots, upcoming projects, his ability to go between comedic and dramatic roles, and classic television. More on Turturro is here, here and here.
