We couldn’t have dreamed of a better lead actor than Mike (Colter). His portrayal of the character is a near perfect replica of the real Charlie Walker.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 12, 2016
In the early 1970's, Charlie Walker a Korean war veteran approached life with a sheer optimistic view of the world. That anyone willing to roll up their sleeves and dedicate themselves to hard work and long unappreciative hours could succeed, but racial prejudices, corporate imposters, and catastrophe, African-American businessman Charlie Walker carried a torch, shining the light in dark corners of the murky tide of San Francisco Bay. “America is Still the Place," the compelling story of one man’s success built from the ground up with all the blood, sweat, and tears of an episodic Hollywood masterpiece.
Premiering on January 24th at the 2016 IndieLounge during the Sundance Film Festival “America is Still the Place” Stars Mike Colter of Marvel’s Luke Cage and Dylan Baker of the Spiderman franchise. “We couldn’t have dreamed of a better lead actor than Mike (Colter).” Director/Producer Patrick Gilles said. “His portrayal of the character is a near perfect replica of the real Charlie Walker.”
