Skee.TV Catches up with Actor and Creators of How to Make It in America

Skee.TV/Karmaloop.TV caught up with pro skater/actor Javier Nunez, creators Ian Edelman and Eli Gesner from the HBO show, How to Make It in America, for this episode. If you're unfamiliar with the series, you should get acquainted with it before the season two debut. The plot centers around two friends - Ben Epstein (Bryan Greenberg) and Cam Calderon (Victor Rasuk) as they hustle through New York trying to establish their clothing line and "make it" as a business. Interesting factoid about Rasuk: he played Vans skate legend Tony Alva in Lords of Dogtown. The show has some serious star power with Kid Cudi, Shannyn Sossamon, Luis Guzman, Lake Bell and Eddie Kaye Thomas in reoccurring roles.

Pro skater/actor Javier Nunez plays Wilfredo Gomez on the series.  He talks about his background in skating and how he transitioned into the world of acting.

Show creator Ian Edelman talks about growing up in New York and bringing his vision of East Coast living to life in his series. 

Eli Gesner talks about meeting Edelman and how his skate knowledge, fashion experience and New York upbringing help him with his role as creative consultant. The guys were pretty tight-lipped about season two but I definitely can't wait for the premiere episode.
