Reiger's "King of the Corner" Debut

January 30, 2006 — Riegert

Peter Riegert is a world class actor whose face is known to everyone and name is known to some. You'll remember him as the conniving undergrad in ANIMAL HOUSE or as the corrupt New Jersey politician from the first season of THE SOPRANOS or from his work in CROSSING DELANCEY.

On Monday, January 30th at 7:00PM, Riegert will screen his directorial debut KING OF THE CORNER in which he stars with Isabella Rossellini, Eric Bogosian, Beverly D'Angelo and Rita Moreno. The movie is adapted (by Riegert) from the series of short stories BAD JEWS AND OTHERS and tells the story of a man struggling with life's big questions -- who are we and what is love? After the film, Riegert will do a Q&A session with the audience.

The screening and talk are free and open to the entire Drexel community, but seating is limited and first come, first serve. This event is sponsored by the Kal and Lucille Rudman Institute for Entertainment Industry Studies and AWCoMAD's Screenwriting & Playwriting Program. For further information, please call 215-895-0352.
