Legendary Academy Award nominee actor Burt Young (Paulie in Sylvester Stallone’s “Rocky”), delivers a powerful special appearance in Timothy Hines’ new comedy feature film, “Tomorrow’s Today”. In Hines’ film Young plays Luca, the village sage who has his own painful secrets.
Mr. Young first gathered notice playing tough thugs in such films as “The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight” (1971), “Across 110th Street” (1972), “Chinatown” (1974) and “The Gambler” (1974). Fiery director Sam Peckinpah cast Young as the getaway driver / assassin Mac in “The Killer Elite” (1975), and Young came to the attention of then newcomer Sylvester Stallone, who cast him as future brother-in-law ‘Paulie’ in the 1976 Academy Award winning classic “Rocky” (1976).
The talented Young was nominated for an Oscar, and has gone on to reprise the role in all five “Rocky” sequels to date. Peckinpah re-hired him to play renegade trucker Pigpen in “Convoy” (1978) in which the director homaged Young by having his character’s truck door read “Paulie Hauling”. Young has also appeared in numerous other major productions, including “Once Upon a Time in America” (1984), “The Pope of Greenwich Village” (1984), “Last Exit to Brooklyn” (1989) and “Mickey Blue Eyes” (1999).

The movie was penned by Frederick Stroppel (A Brooklyn State of Mind), from an idea by Greg Kritikos with additional dialogue and scenarios by Timothy Hines, Teddy Smith and Joanne Scorcia.
Director Timothy Hines says of the film, “In times when many people are breaking off from one another other into increasingly provincial and polarized groups, I wanted to make a film that brings people of different viewpoints and cultural identities together. I wanted to show where even the most combative opponents can find common ground, and doing so is often the only way to solve complex social problems. To gain the attention of a wide range of diverse groups, it was crucial that this story be told with a comic eye.”
Kelly Le Brock calls the picture, “a charming little film that is like Weird Science in that the underdog wins.”
The film addresses change, diversity, addiction, enabling, loyalty, grief, character, interracial relationships, adultery, divorce, marriage, church, avoidance, guilt, survival, good vs evil, and identity.
