The Artist + The Mobster: The two black sheep of a Long Island Family both color outside the lines.
There is a saying -- "you're only as sick as your secrets." For USC professor of theater, award winning poet and filmmaker Eric Trules, his family secrets ran deep.
After spending most of his childhood admiring his Uncle Harvey, it was revealed that Harvey was in the mob. A murderer and jewelery thief, Eric Trules became fascinated by Uncle Harvey's life of crime -- and started to think about how when you're a black sheep cast out from the "normaltons" of society, you often have two ways out: the life of an artist or a life of crime.
Absolutely loved having Eric on the show. Enjoy it...
