The fascinating characters who make you laugh and cry in AN INFATUATION

February 4, 2015

I wrote and acted in a wacky skit you might enjoy. Here’s the link: http://joecosentino.weebly.com/video.html.

People often ask which are my favorite characters? In AN INFATUATION Harold is loosely based on me, so it’s a no-brainer. Actually, I really admire Harold’s resilience, honesty, intelligence, wit, and ability to keep going in trying situations. His heart may be broken, but his spirit always stays intact. Stuart was also great fun to write, because he is loosely based on my spouse who is totally organized and a real list maker, but also sweet, creative, and caring. He creates an itinerary for our trips in ten-minute time blocks! Harold’s devotion to his spouse, Stuart, is admirable, as is his honesty about his teenage infatuation with Mario. I love that the story spans twenty years so we see Harold (and Mario) develop and mature.
