Having played a mad doctor in “Vamp Bikers Tres,” he is now portraying a godfather in “Japanese Borscht,” another movie from low-budget auteur Eric Rivas.
“I’m playing a gay Mafioso named Uncle,” Musto told me. “He’s barbaric — he’s a mobster — and his sexuality proves that some very rotten people can be gay. Look at Milo and Jeffrey Dahmer!”
When another character calls him Liberace, Musto’s Uncle replies, “Before I smack the crap out of you, I’m gonna turn you into a Liberace.” In another scene, shot in Rockefeller Center, Musto walked another actor, who was down on all fours, on a leash.
