GEORGE ANDREAKOS AN ACTOR WHO EMBODIES EVERY ROLE

by Nick Christophers

George Andreakos has been in the acting game for a brief time, but has made himself noticeable in every role he has taken part in. From his first step on the screen in “The Mysteries of Laura,” (2014) George knew acting would be a big part of his life, and has not looked back since. His talent began to take notice in 2020 when he played the character Nicholas Mazzelli in the film “Blackjack: The Jackie Ryan Story” that featured such talents like Robert Davi and David Arquette.

He has welcomed all types of roles like playing a detective, van driver, doctor, or a landlord. But he has been more sought after to portray a mobster, which he has nailed repeatedly. For many actors, they fear being typecast, but for others it is a gift to even be considered for their work. George is otherwise thankful for having an opportunity to grace the screen in any way possible whether it be a comedic role or dramatic.

He has nailed numerous wiseguy roles lately. In 2019, he played the role of Frankie in the mob film “Mob Town” followed by the recent “Inside Man,” where he played, Luca Santi and the soon to be released “Mob Cops” as Anthony. Granted George has the look of a bruiser, but in reality, he is a gentle giant. But director / producer Danny Abeckaser noticed the way George can enter a room and stand out, and can deliver that type of role flawlessly.


I really enjoyed playing Luca Santi in the film Inside Man which was directed by Danny Abeckaser. I have recently signed on to play another character called Johnny Cantone in an upcoming film. [It’s t]oo early to discuss.”

As we mentioned earlier, George played in the recent “Inside Man,” which is based on true events surrounding the violent mob crew under Roy DeMeo. Ironically, there was a film that was supposed to come out years ago called “In the Wind,” which was based on the life of Dominick Montiglio (RIP) who was involved with Roy via his uncle Nino. But it never happened, since they were told not to make it (hint). In the recent version, George acted opposite actress Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars), which was a highlight for him.

It surely was, and I really must thank Director Danny Abeckaser for believing in me and giving me the role to play opposite Lucy. At first, I did not know what to expect working with Lucy, but after meeting her in hair and makeup before getting on set, she was the most down-to-earth thespian I have ever met.

After all, she does have an extensive resume, and is an accomplished, sought-out celebrity. We had a lot of fun filming, including the bar scene. But the car scene before we walked into the lounge was one of the most memorable. She is driving and puts the old vintage car in park. I am getting out, but the car is still rolling back. She looked at me, and I looked at her, and we were like, ‘What the hell is wrong with this car?’ She was sincerely concerned I did not get hurt while I was halfway out of the car. A true professional with a genuine concern. A class act, I hope to work with Lucy again in the future.”

There are of course several actors that George would love to work with. He mentioned such names as Al Pacino, Clint Eastwood, Pierce Brosnan, Leonardo Di Caprio, Brad Pitt, and, of course, fellow Greek Actress Jennifer Aniston.

On the table currently is the project “Mob Cops,” which is based on the events surrounding the corrupt cops Louis Eppolitto and Lou Carcappa who did dirty work for mobster Anthony “Gaspipe” Casso in the 80’s. George plays the character Anthony, a mobster. He collaborated again with Director Danny Abeckaser, joined by producer Kyle Stefanski and Gustavo Nacimento.

Kosta Kondilopoulos wrote the script. The cast was made of actors like David Arquette, Kevin Connolly, Leila Ben Khalifa, Jeremy Luke, Darren Weiss, Nate Buzz, Mike Young, Lorenzo Antonucci, Joseph Russo, Montana Tucker, Graham Sibley, and Lynn Adriana Freedman. George is always looking to up his game in any role that is placed before him. Be on the lookout for his upcoming work on “Mob Cops” due to drop soon.

As a talented individual, I have always been immersed in the arts. Whether it is drawing or writing, my passion for both was unwavering. Graduating from the School of Visual Arts with a degree in Media Arts and a minor in Journalism, I was off and running. With the knowledge I garnered from the College I managed to create my own Public Relations business. When it comes to my writing I have been published in many online and print magazines. Since I come from a Greek background my first writing gig was with a major Greek publication entitled National Herald. The experience with this newspaper helped me branch out to others like it, like the Hellenic Times. Eventually, I decided to expand my skills to the mainstream market. Hence, I began submitting articles to online publications like http://www.thelifestylerepublic.com/, www.skopemagazine.com and https://www.cosanostranews.com/ In addition to all the press work, I have also penned my own novel “Destinies” which is currently available on Amazon and in working to go from script to screen. Besides that, I also just completed a historical overview of the Greek mafia worldwide which is also on Amazon along with my third book which I worked with ex-mobster John Alite called Prison Rules. In addition, I was featured as a mob expert on the cable channel REELZ for the program “Mafia Killers w/ Colin McLaren”. Even though I have made these strides with my God-given talent I am always in search of building more bridges. In the entertainment industry there are no limits to what one can accomplish.
