Bayside native Peter Gaudio will be
playing “the muscle” in upcoming fi lm
“Cruise,” which is directed by Robert
Siegel, writer of fi lms “Th e Wrestler”
and “Th e Founder.”
“Cruise” is set in 1987 New York featuring
fast cars, mob connections and a
blue-collar, Italian-American (Spencer
Boldman) falling for a wealthy Jewish
girl (Emily Ratajkowski) from Long
Island, according to the movie’s IMDb
Th e fi lm’s setting is personal for
Gaudio, since it’s on his home turf.
“I’ve lived this movie. Everyone else
comes to Queens and does their work
and then goes back home to their mansions
in Malibu. I still live in Bayside,”
Gaudio works alongside another
Queens local, Gino Cafarelli, in “Cruise.”
Cafarelli was involved in the pre-production,
has an executive producer
credit and plays the father of Spencer
Boldman’s character in the movie.
“If it wasn’t for Gino, the movie
‘Cruise’ wouldn’t be where it is today,”
Gaudio’s storied resume includes
a role in Robert De Niro’s directorial
debut “A Bronx Tale,” which is celebrating

its 25th anniversary this year, and an
uncredited role as a mobster in “Gotti,”
a fi lm starring John Travolta.
“I’ve been blessed to work opposite
some very talented performers,” he said.
Gaudio also has a new television series
coming to a major network in 2019. Th e
show has yet to be offi cially announced,
but is a mob drama set in Brooklyn,
Gaudio said. Th e project is a collaboration
with William DeMeo, a Brooklyn
native Gaudio met working on “A Bronx
Tale” and worked with again in “Gotti.”
While Gaudio has had diff erent parts
in many projects, he said the most
important role he plays is father to his
“Cruise” premieres in select theaters
on Sept. 28, and will also be available
