We recently caught up with Tommy Lee Thomas, actor and producer, who is best known for the films, “Con Games” and “One More Round” to see what he has been up to.
Check out our exclusive chat below!
Action Flix: Tommy Lee, how have you been? What are you up to these days?
Tommy: Hi John, good to hear from you. I am doing well. Been a tough season for all of us during Covid, but all things considered I have a lot to be thankful for…
Are you working on any new projects?
As a matter of fact, I am just starting a new script that deals with redemption, faith and overcoming substance abuses, something I know a good deal about myself…
Really, what’s it about and can you tell us more about it?
I have gone through a lot both personally and professionally in the last few years…We lost one of my best friends, mentors, producing partners and co-stars, Franco Columbu in 2019…I was devastated by this loss as was so many others, including Franco’s best friend, Arnold Schwarzenegger…Franco and I had planned to do at least 3 more films together before he died….
Yes we were very sorry to have heard of his passing also….
So as a result I am writing a new script that I intend to produce that will be my most personal film yet. I have not shared this publicly yet, but I have had a problem with alcohol in my personal life these last few years, but with the help of my family, friends and God I am working to get past it and back on top of it…this new film will depict some of what I have gone through personally to hopefully also encourage others that there is help out there for alcohol problems and with God’s help we can overcome that horrible disease…I am very excited about this project!
That sounds really great. Will you be acting and producing again on this one?
Yes I will and I am hopeful it will encourage people like me who have had similar problems…
When will you start shooting?
I am planning to go into production later this year if all goes well. We are working hard on the script at this time.
Great, please keep us updated and again always great to talk with you!
