Retired New York Cop Banks on MegaBall$

By Richard Horgan Comment

The general consensus is that the median age of regular metropolitan daily newspaper readers is way up there. This Saturday, no doubt, each and every one of those Newsday demo-members will thoroughly enjoy deputy entertainment editor Daniel Bubbeo’s article “Retired Cop, 82, Still on a Beat He Loves: Showbiz.”

The piece – advance-posted online but behind a paywall – is all about Joe Cirillo, an NYPD vet who hung up his Upper West Side/20th Precinct badge in 1977 and found continued success as a card-carrying SAG actor, Kojak consultant and security expert. Now, at age 82, he’s a credited co-writer, co-director and producer on MegaBall$, an in-development fact-based tale about a bunch of MIT lottery crunchers. From the film website:

Newsday, a major NY newspaper and ranked 11th in the country, has done a profile on Oroloro [Entertainment] partner Joe Cirillo… with lots of talk about MegaBall$

This should raise our Internet presence many-fold, and show investors that this film has real potential. Newsday has a circulation of over 400,000 not counting online viewership. Tell your friends!

Done. To read more non-paywalled info about Cirillo, click here or here.
