There’s a new crime-drama thriller in theatres about pursuing a bank robber and police corruption which was almost entirely filmed in Schenectady, NY.

It’s called ”The Place Beyond the Pines’ starring Bradley Cooper, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes.

NY State Senator Hugh Farley joined WIBX First News with Keeler in the Morning to talk about the excitement it’s generated in the community, and his silver screen debut.

POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT – IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE FILM, DON’T CONTINUE

”I’m in the credits, and I introduce Bradley Cooper as he wins the Attorney Generalship of the State of New York. Almost all of it, was filmed [in Schnectady],” Farley said.

”It shows the local church and the police station and the hospitals. And the community was very much involved in the filming. They asked me to be a stand in, then they gave me two pages of scripts. I have joined the actors union, which allows me to get residuals, I guess,” he said. ”I think my acting ability is rather limited, but I enjoyed it.”

”Bradley Cooper is a graduate of Georgetown University, as am I, so we’re both Hoyas,” Farley joked. The senator also cautioned ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’ isn’t approporiate for all audiences.

”There’s a lot of ‘F’ words in it, but there much sex or violence. It is ‘R’ rated…I think it will get people thinking” he said.
