Bratt does H-Town
If you’re a big fan of actor Benjamin Bratt – or even if you’re just a Law & Order devotee who’s eager to see what the former Detective Rey Curtis is up to these days – take note: Bratt will be barnstorming Houston this Saturday to promote his new movie, La Mission, a gritty drama about an ex-convict’s stormy relationship with his son.
It’ll be hard to miss the guy, since Bratt – whose other film credits include Miss Congeniality, Catwoman and Traffic – is scheduled to appear at no fewer than six different area theaters for post-screening Q&A sessions. Look for him after the closing credits at these La Mission showings: 1 p.m. at the AMC Willowbrook 24; 2 p.m. at the AMC Deerbrook 24; 3:30 p.m. at the AMC First Colony 24; 7 p.m. at the AMC Studio 30; 8 p.m. at the Angelika Film Center; and 9 p.m. at the AMC Gulf Pointe 30.
Whew! Makes me tired just to read that itinerary.
Much like La Mission itself, Bratt’s Saturday multiplex marathon will be a family affair: The actor will be accompanied during his H-Town appearances by his brother, filmmaker Peter Bratt, who directed La Mission. But let me warn you right off the bat: Neither one of the Bratt boys likely will take kindly to any questions about Benjamin’s years-ago romance with Julia Roberts. Got it?
