When you think of Philadelphia, you think of tough guys with big hearts – and cheesesteaks. That’s just fine with Tony Luke, Jr., restaurateur, actor, and impresario, who is as much a part of his city’s landscape as Constitution Hall and the Phillie Phanatic. With his legendary eateries serving up to 20,000 cheesesteaks, roast pork, chicken cutlets, and hoagies a week,the bear-sized Luke has taken his success to the big screen with the independent feature “The Nail,” co-written by and starring Luke. The film is now airing on Showtime and The Movie Channel, after earning the audience award for Best Film at his hometown film festival, Cinefast 09. Impressive versatility for a former martial artist and would-be boxer, born and bred on the streets of South Philly. Acting and performing were Tony's first passions. And he is stopping By Stardeish to talk all about it!
