'Good Sam' actor Marco Grazzini says he loved working with Tiya Sircar: 'We're both criminally obsessed with food'

Netflix's latest feel-good film 'Good Sam' premiered on May 16.

The film follows a reporter who takes on a story about a mysterious good Samaritan who begins leaving $100,000 on random doorsteps in New York.

The film stars Tiya Sircar as Kate Bradley, a reporter for Channel 9 News, along with Marco Grazzini, Chad Connell, Britanny Drisdelle, and Mark Camacho.

Marco Grazzini plays the role of Jack Hansen in the film, an aspiring Congressman who takes interest in Bradley. Throughout the film, the relationship between the two goes through various ups and downs, until Bradley finds Hansen's true intentions.

Jack Hansen is portrayed as an opportunistic and often manipulative man in the film.

Actor Marco Grazzini spoke about his character in an exclusive interview with MEA World Wide (MEAWW). He says his character only "wants to have a successful career, and possibly find love."

"Now who doesn't want that, right?" he added.

About his off-screen rapport with Tiya Sircar, Grazzini exclaimed: "Smooth skies! Tiya is so lovely and kind. We immediately hit it off."

He added that it was hard not to, since "our first scene was at the taco shop and we're both criminally obsessed with food."

Grazzini has featured in TV series 'The Flash' (2016) and 'Anon' (2018), while Sircar has appeared on 'The Good Place' (2016-18) and 'The Internship' (2013). 

"We even traded Yelp must-eat-here lists — that's like kindred spirits type stuff," he added.

The film, adapted from a mystery book series of the same name by Dete Meserve, aims to convey a message of kindness, to let viewers believe that there is still some good left in the world.


Speaking about the script written by Meserve and Teena Booth, Grazzini said that the "movie's heart was the primary draw" for him. "Nowadays, we're surrounded by so much anxiety-inducing material, both real world and scripted, so it feels nice to follow 'the good' for 90 minutes," he added.

'Good Sam' is directed by Kate Melville, whom Grazzini said had "wonderful ease and accessibility about her."

"She was gracious enough to give me an opportunity to workshop the character and the scenes with her prior to filming," he added.

Melville has previously worked on TV series 'Endgame' (2011) and 'Orphan Black' (2016).
