“An LA actor goes home to Philadelphia to make GAME DAY a film that pulls no punches about family, fears and football, on TUBI.”
TV & Film Film Reviews Filmmaking Football Drama
I'm Dean Simone, an American actor, screenwriter, filmmaker, model, songwriter and musician. My dream came true when I, a working LA actor, went home to Philadelphia after 30 years to make a film I co-wrote called GAME DAY with an all Philly cast and crew. It's an unflinching look at an Italian-American family watching an Eagles-Cowboys game and the drama that erupts. Honest, funny and sometimes brutal, GAME DAY is loosely based on my own family. GAME DAY is newly released and now available on TUBI, Amazon Prime and Vimeo, where it has gotten critical praise.
In my acting career, I've been blessed to work with many great talents... Michel Gondry, Jon Voight, Billy Bob Thornton, David E. Kelley, Steven Bochco, David Milch, Mickey Rourke and Hoyte van Hoytema to name a few. I have appeared in numerous Super Bowl commercials including my portrayal of JIM BEAM, kicking off a two-year global campaign. I proudly perform throughout the world as the lead singer of The Smokin' Cobras, a band that's taken me from Dodger Stadium to Tokyo, Japan. I now make my home in Southern California...I'm a family man, a Catholic and a general pain the ass to my long suffering, incredible wife.
