)-- The film is about a suit made especially for the local Italian Mafia Don. When Mike's dream of making a suit for the local mafia Don becomes a reality, he begins to realize that he is becoming part of the local Mob as well as getting his son Sammy involved in the local mob operations.
Collectively, Mike and his family make an effort to remove themselves from the Mafia and all that encompasses when it is brought to light that rival Don Crivello has been provoking Don Piano. In the mob, "Once you're in, you're in" and it is difficult to "get out!"
The film writer and director Dan Perri drew on his own family experiences to write the script. He worked with some of the greatest film makers like George Lucas and Martin Scorsese. Perri notes in the local Downey paper where part of the film was shot, "The story is very personal to me and my family. My uncle was a man of principle who became involved with the local NY Mafia."
Actor Ivan Katz who plays competing boss, Cosmo Crivello, has been involved in the entertainment industry and fashion industry for over 15 years. Publishing the largest business magazine in Orange County, Business To Business Magazine, Mr. Katz hosted the Business To Business Magazine Show featuring many of Orange County most influential business owners. Mr. Katz continued his acting career and met Dan Perri, Writer and Director of "Sharkskin" at the Pasadena School of Design where he auditioned for Don Piano.
Katz fit the part for a Mob Boss perfectly except, according to Perri, he was not "fat" enough to play the part. Don Piano's central role was that he ravenous eater. Katz accepted the role of competing Boss, Cosmo Crivello.
