East Hampton - "Knuckleheads," a movie by David Karges and Sridhar Ranganath, stars Golden Globe nominee actor Steven Bauer, best known as Mani in the movie "Scarface" (with Al Pacino). "Knuckleheads" is shooting in East Hampton and at East Hampton Studio.

Steven Bauer's first substantial role was in the PBS bilingual sitcom "Que Pasa, USA," playing the teenage son of a Cuban exile family in Miami, from 1977 to 1979. He also appeared in the 1980 TV miniseries "From Here to Eternity." Bauer was given the substantial role of Manny Ribera in the 1983 movie "Scarface" even though he was a relatively unknown actor at the time. His performance drew a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Bauer was also in "Primal Fear" and "Traffic."

Director of Photography Vitaly Bokser has shot eight features, over 40 short films, multiple music videos, commercials, docs and industrials. His most recent feature work includes "Pizza Man," "Naked as We Came In," "Indelible," "The Shooting Star Salesman," and "Yitzy." Other works include a documentary for Showtime's Katherine Moennig on GLBT Youth Homelessness in NY. TV pilots include "Almost Famous" and "The Flye Society."

"Knuckleheads" is the story of Manny and JP, two men who feel internal loss and disconnection. As the lives of the two men converge, they slowly develop a kinship that parallels father and son. Helping one another reconcile the past, they work towards improving the present and avoid making the mistakes that would ultimately jeopardize the future. "Knuckleheads" is a moving and inspiring character-driven drama that explores the human condition and affirms a sense of possibility and hope.
