Default 2020, 2021 Film 'The King of Staten Island' (Star Cast, Story, Latest News)



Story, About:
Scott has been a case of arrested development ever since his firefighter father died when he was seven. He's now reached his mid-20s having achieved little, chasing a dream of becoming a tattoo artist that seems far out of reach. As his ambitious younger sister heads off to college, Scott is still living with his exhausted ER nurse mother and spends his days smoking weed, hanging with the guys - Oscar, Igor and Richie - and secretly hooking up with his childhood friend Kelsey. But when his mother starts dating a loudmouth firefighter named Ray, it sets off a chain of events that will force Scott to grapple with his grief and take his first tentative steps toward moving forward in life.

It is set to be released through video on demand on June 12, 2020, by Universal Pictures.

Unknown Facts
  • Steve Buscemi (Papa) actually was a New York City firefighter before becoming a full-time professional actor. In November 2000 Buscemi told Salon interviewer Stephen Lemons that for four years in the early 1980s he was with Engine 55 in Manhattan's Little Italy. He said that after about a year on the job he resumed acting classes but continued working for the FDNY while simultaneously acting in plays and movies. In 1984 Buscemi quit firefighting to pursue acting full-time, but after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, he returned to his old fire station to help search for survivors in the rubble of the World Trade Center.
  • In his real life, Pete Davidson's father was also a firefighter who died in the line of duty. Scott Davidson's unit, Ladder Company 118 in Brooklyn Heights, responded to the call to the World Trade Center after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, and were in the middle of rescuing people in the Marriott World Trade Center Hotel when the WTC towers collapsed on the building. Pete was seven years old.

Davidson attended St. Joseph High School, a Catholic school. Before SNL, he appeared on the shows Wild 'N Out (2005), Jimmy Kimmel Live! (2003), Guy Code (2011), and in the film School Dance (2014).



Bel Powley was born on March 7, 1992 in London, England. She is an actress, known for The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2015), A Royal Night Out (2015) and Carrie Pilby (2016).



Ricky Velez is known for his work on The King of Staten Island (2020), Master of None (2015) and Crashing (2017).




Lou Wilson is an actor, known for American Vandal (2017), The Guest Book (2017) and Tween Fest (2016).



Moises Arias was born on April 18, 1994 in New York City, New York, USA. He is an actor and producer, known for The Kings of Summer (2013), Ender's Game (2013) and Nacho Libre (2006).

Marisa Tomei was born on December 4, 1964, in Brooklyn, New York, to Patricia "Addie" (Bianchi), a teacher of English, and Gary Tomei, a lawyer, both of Italian descent. Marisa has a brother, actor Adam Tomei. As a child, Marisa's mother frequently corrected her speech as to eliminate her heavy Brooklyn accent. As a teen, Marisa attended Edward R. Murrow High School and graduated in the class of 1982. She was one year into her college education at Boston University when she dropped out for a co-starring role on the CBS daytime drama As the World Turns (1956). Her role on that show paved the way for her entrance into film: in 1984, she made her film debut with a bit part in The Flamingo Kid (1984). Three years later, Marisa became known for her role as Maggie Lawton, Lisa Bonet's college roommate, on the sitcom A Different World (1987).

Her real breakthrough came in 1992, when she co-starred as Joe Pesci's hilariously foul-mouthed, scene-stealing girlfriend in My Cousin Vinny (1992), a performance that won her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar. Later that year, she turned up briefly as a snippy Mabel Normand in director Richard Attenborough's biopic Chaplin (1992), and was soon given her first starring role in Untamed Heart (1993). A subsequent starring role -- and attempted makeover into Audrey Hepburn -- in the romantic comedy Only You (1994) proved only moderately successful.

Marisa's other 1994 role as Michael Keaton's hugely pregnant wife in The Paper (1994) was well-received, although the film as a whole was not. Fortunately for Tomei, she was able to rebound the following year with a solid performance as a troubled single mother in Nick Cassavetes' Unhook the Stars (1996) which earned her a Screen Actors Guild nomination for Best Supporting Actress. She turned in a similarly strong work in Welcome to Sarajevo (1997), and in 1998 did some of her best work in years as the ***ually liberated, unhinged cousin of Natasha Lyonne's Vivian Abramowitz in Tamara Jenkins' Slums of Beverly Hills (1998). Marisa co-starred with Mel Gibson in the hugely successful romantic comedy What Women Want (2000) and during the 2002 movie award season, she proved her first Best Supporting Actress Oscar win was no fluke when she received her second nomination in the same category for the critically acclaimed dark drama, In the Bedroom (2001). She also made a guest appearance on the animated TV phenomenon The Simpsons (1989) as Sara Sloane, a movie star who falls in love with Ned Flanders. In 2006, she went on to do 4 episodes for Rescue Me (2004). She played Angie, the ex-wife of Tommy Calvin (Denis Leary)'s brother Johnny (Dean Winters). At age 42, Marisa took on a provocative role in legendary filmmaker Sidney Lumet's melodramatic picture Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007), in which she appeared nude in love scenes with costars Ethan Hawke and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Marisa then took on another provocative role as a stripper in the highly acclaimed film The Wrestler (2008) opposite Mickey Rourke. Her great performance earned her many awards from numerous film societies for Best Supporting Actress, a third Academy Award nomination, as well as nominations for a Golden Globe and a BAFTA. Many critics heralded this performance as a standout in her career.



Maude Apatow is an American actress. She is the eldest daughter of director Judd Apatow and actress Leslie Mann, and is possibly best known for her very popular Twitter page. After minor roles in Knocked Up (2007) and Funny People (2009), as the daughter of Leslie Mann's characters, she had a slightly bigger role in the 2012 film, This Is 40 (2012), again as Leslie Mann's character's daughter.
