Second Trailer for Showtime’s ‘American Gigolo’ with Jon Bernthal
“Somebody set me up… It’s not over!!” Showtime has revealed the second trailer for American Gigolo, a new streaming series remake of the 1980 film of the same name. The first trailer was quite impressive and totally sold me, this one adds to that buzz. This series stars the ultimate suave guy Jon Bernthal, taking on the very same role that was played by Richard Gere in the original film. Showtime’s American Gigolo is a present-day reimagining of the iconic 1980 film. Julian Kaye has always been an object of desire, so much so that people are willing to destroy him in order to have him. Exonerated, after 15 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit, he now faces the challenge of picking up the pieces as the detective who put him behind bars tries to unravel the mystery that led to his wrongful incarceration. Also with Gretchen Mol, Gabriel LaBelle, Lizzie Brocheré, and Leland Orser. Yet another true crime series, this looks damn good so far.
Here’s the second trailer (+ poster) for Showtime’s series American Gigolo, direct from YouTube:
Julian Kaye (Jon Bernthal), 15 years after being arrested for murder and struggling to find his footing in the modern-day Los Angeles sex industry, seeks the truth about the frame that sent him to prison all those years ago and also hoping to reconnect with his one true love, Michelle (Gretchen Mol). American Gigolo is a Showtime series developed by David Hollander, based on the 1980 film of the same name written and directed by Paul Schrader. It’s produced by Jon Bernthal.
