Here’s a Trailer for Romany Malco’s Debut as Writer/Director/Star “Tijuana Jackson: Purpose Over Prison”
Romany Malco, who you probably very much enjoyed in many supporting or ensemble roles for several years (Weeds, A Million Little Things), is taking getting top billing into his own hands by putting out his very first feature film that he has written, directed, and starred in, Tijuana Jackson: Purpose Over Prison.
Malco stars as the titular Jackson who is an ex-convict trying to become a self-help guru after his release as told through a documentary crew following his journey. From the trailer, there’s a certain, ironic charm to his aspirations to become a motivational speaker reminiscent of Greg Kinnear’s desperate motivational speaker in Little Miss Sunshine. Also, it looks like Regina Hall might steal several scenes throughout this film.
