Kazy Tauginas talks about his Chicago roots, entering the boxing ring, watching his mother deal with Lupus and starring alongside hollywood legend Denzel Washington. The Equalizer 2 opens this Friday July 20 nationwide! Check out the full interview below:
About: Kazy started out as a restaurateur and Golden Gloves boxer before graduating from the prestigious New York Film Academy. From there, he began working in numerous theatre, film and television roles, including “Person of Interest,” “Blindspot,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Blue Bloods,” “Sneaky Pete,” and “John Wick.”
Drawing inspiration from his mother who’d been diagnosed with Lupus, and his own boxing experience, Kazy wrote “Standing Eight,” a short about a boxer who is forced to retire after being diagnosed with Systemic Lupus. He oversaw two successful Kickstarter campaigns to fully fund the film. Since its completion, “Standing Eight” has won eleven festival awards including Trinity International Film Festival’s Best Short Film, and is currently nominated for another four. He hopes to release the film later this year on Amazon, with proceeds going to Lupus Research Alliance. Kazy just booked another big movie with a major star (information is embargoed for now), that is being filmed as we speak in Los Angeles.
