TIO PAPI Cast On The Independently-Made Latino Film


Meet Joey Dedio, an independent filmmaker and actor, whose passion project TIO PAPI makes its way into movie theaters September 6. CineMovie is with the star/writer/producer and his two young co-stars.

Not everyone waits for Hollywood to come calling. Joey Dedio has been producing films independently for a few years. His latest project, TIO PAPI has the multi-hyphenate playing a bachelor forced to take in his sister’s six children after their parents die in a car accident. As Uncle Daddy, Ray Ray must decide over family or his own desires.

Joey Dedio along with Fatima Ptacek (Dora the Explorer's voice) and David Castro talk about the experience making the independent film and working with Top Gun actress Kelly McGillis.

TIO PAPI was nominated for five 2013 Imagen Awards including Best Feature Film. The film also stars Frankie Faison, Elizabeth Rodriguez (Orange Is the New Black, Side Effects), Franky G (The Italian Job, Saw II) and Madonna’s ex Carlos Leon.  (Check movie theater listings below.)
