LR-How do you feel in Miami?
MA: “I feel great in Miami! People here are super friendly and it’s a kind of comfort that I have been missing. I am originally from Mississippi so it’s good to be back.”
LR-Tell us about your experience leading the film “The Ultimate Sacrifice?”
MA: “I think it’s a privilege and an honor to be here that’s why I came from Los Angeles to do this film. It’s a great script and it’s a real story. This film can make a difference. It’s hard to have a life after combat and come back to the normal society. “Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder” is definitely a big issue but there is help.”
LR-Do you have any friend or family that has been diagnostic with PTSD?
MA: “Yes, I do. Most of my friends from high school joined the Armed Forces and some of them went to Iraq and Afghanistan and this affected their lives; like I said before there is help. It’s not a life-ending experience, you can always change. I have been acting and have served in the military, and I want to give a big shout-out to everyone who is serving in the forces because they are all heroes!”
LR- What do you think about Latin girls?
MA: “I love them, they have a unique style and I love the culture; very colorful people!”
LR-What is your next project?
MA: “I have a couple of things that are coming out such as: Fight Night Legacy”, a series about boxing, “Maximus”- it’s modern-Day Spartacus film where I am playing lead and “Rock Buffington: Discount Gigolo” that is a comedy pilot series where I play the antagonist as a gigolo, where you will see me in a Speedo.
