Alycia Kaback and Finding Fame Radio talk to Danny A. Abeckaser, ("Danny A") is an Israeli born and Brooklyn raised actor, writer and producer, who made a successful transition from a thriving career to follow his dreams. Selective when it comes to the projects he works on, Abeckaser's first foray into cinema was 2010's Holy Rollers. Directed by Kevin Achs, Danny stars alongside Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Bartha in a story about a young man from an Orthodox Jewish community who is lured into becoming an Ecstasy dealer by a friend linked to an Israeli drug cartel. Following the film's success, Danny went on to land one of his better known roles as Dino Lapron in The Iceman, appearing alongside Ray Liotta, Winona Ryder, Chris Evans, and James Franco as "The Iceman's" best friend. To date, he regards the part as one of his favorite and most challenging roles. With two successful films under his belt, Danny was able to fulfill a life-long dream when he was given the opportunity to work with the legendary Martin Scorsese on The Wolf of Wall Street.Abeckaser continued the momentum and soon after finished a longtime project writing and co-producing the film Club Life, which was loosely based on his life as a New York nightclub power player. In Club Life, Danny plays Mark, a nightlife promoter who offers Johnny (Jerry Ferrara) a chance at success. On February 9th, 2016, Abeckaser will step into the spotlight for his first leading role as the star in the upcoming release of "A Stand Up Guy", a meta-comedy about comedy that tells the story of a low-level mobster who disappears into the Witness Protection Program, only to become an Internet celebrity when his open-mic set goes viral. Apart from acting, Abeckaser runs 2B Productions, which has produced six films. Abeckaser is also slated to appear in Bruce Willis' dark bank heist film "Marauders," where he has a supporting role.
