Another famous criminal asks Sean Penn for help

Steve Comisar’s Wikipedia page lists him as a con man. It’s not surprising since he has spent the last 15 years in prison on a fraud conviction. The FBI has ranked him in the top ten con men of all time, second only to Frank Abagnale, subject of the Oscar winning movie, Catch Me if You Can, directed by Steven Spielberg.

With one year to go before release, Comisar wants to make a career change from con man to actor. The only way to accomplish this is with the help of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Comisar has personally asked Sean Penn and others to lend a helping hand by giving him acting roles in their upcoming movies. He has also asked some of the top directors, like Steven Spielberg, and talent agents, like Ari Emanuel, to help him as well.

Comisar rose to fame as a con man in the 90’s after he was first released from prison. He reinvented himself as a celebrity con man and parlayed his brand into dozens of appearances on talk shows and news magazine programs. He appeared regularly as a fraud expert on Dateline NBC and The View. He also wrote the best selling book, America’s Guide to Fraud Prevention, which is considered the gold standard of the fraud industry. After securing a major talent agent, Comisar landed a co-starring role in the movie Tough Luck with Norman Reedus, the star of the hit television series, The Walking Dead.

Cementing himself as America’s foremost authority on fraud was not enough and soon Comisar got bored, committed more fraud, and found himself back in prison. This time he hopes to make the very difficult transformation from famous con man to working Hollywood actor. Comisar says, “If the people I asked are willing to help me, I know I’m going to succeed. If not, it’s back to the talk show circuit.”

While in prison Comisar has built an enormous social media empire which consists of over half a million Twitter followers and over 1 million views on his YouTube videos. Comisar, now 54, grew up in Beverly Hills, California. As a young man he studied acting with Lee Strasberg and has had supporting roles in many movies, television shows, and commercials. He is seeking assistance from any A-list actor, director, producer, or talent agent in Hollywood willing to help him.

Some of Comisar’s acting credits include the following movies and television shows: Tough Luck, Fists of Iron, The Seduction of Gina, Sister Dearest, Streets of Fire, Desert Sun, Hell Town, Throb, General Hospital, The Con Man, Making Crime Pay, over 50 television commercials, and over 75 talk shows and news programs. He won the Viewers Choice Award in 1998 for best guest on a television talk show.

Incarcerated actor Steve Comisar calls upon Steven Spielberg for a little help after release

Before going to prison for fraud, actor Steve Comisar appeared in many movies, TV shows, and commercials. Next year he will be released from federal prison after serving 15 years. Comisar would like to once again act in movies, but how is he going to accomplish this?

Enter Steven Spielberg, probably the most powerful man in Hollywood. Comisar has recently asked Spielberg to give him some assistance in the form of acting roles in his upcoming films.

Comisar says, “The closed mouth doesn’t get fed. I’m hoping that Mr. Spielberg will find it in his heart to help me. After all, we’re both Jewish. Growing up, our family dined at his mom’s restaurant, The Milky Way, on a weekly basis. It was walking distance from our home.”

Comisar’s publicist, Laura Levine, says, “Mr. Spielberg is known to help other Jews in need, and what better a person than Steve Comisar, who’s both Jewish, and seeking help in an arena where Spielberg is king.”

Barry Freed, retired ICM agent, says, “If Steven Spielberg snaps his fingers, Steve Comisar will be acting again. It’s that simple. In our business, Jews help Jews every day. We started Hollywood and we are still the driving force.”

Comisar’s attorney, Jeremy Gordon, says, “I spoke to an iconic Jewish actor the other day. He told me that he puts his Jewish friends in his movies all the time. He said that he could easily do the same for Steve. I really think Steve is going to nail this.”

Comisar’s manager, Victor Kruglov, adds, “We have been in contact with many famous Jewish celebrities in Hollywood. They all seem willing to help. The list includes, Steven Spielberg, Adam Sandler, Ethan Coen, Ben Stiller, Seth Rogan, Ari Emanuel, Judd Apatow, Jim Toth, and Sean Penn, whose paternal grandfather was Jewish.”

Rabbi Zvi Boyarsky of the Aleph Institute, said, “Sean Penn recently risked his life to help rescue an American Jew from a notorious Bolivian prison. We gave him an honorary dinner in September at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. The favor Mr. Comisar is requesting is far easier to grant.”

Comisar has also contacted non-Jewish celebrity felons, Mark Wahlberg, Robert Downey Jr., Tim Allen, Wesley Snipes, and Danny Trejo, and asked them to help him upon release. So far, nobody has declined his request.

Comisar, 53, will reunite with his family and friends in Beverly Hills, California, after he is released next year. It’s now up to Hollywood’s A-list to step up and help give him a second chance as an actor. Comisar is welcoming help from all powerful actors, directors, producers, and agents. Everyone loves a good comeback. Hollywood’s elite can make it happen.

Top Stars Rally to Support Actor Steve Comisar After 15 Years in Prison.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, October 20, 2015 /EINPresswire.com/ -- -- Steve Comisar has appeared as an actor in dozens of movies, TV shows and commercials. He is also a felon finishing a 15 year prison sentence for fraud. 

Where does an actor go after serving 15 years? He goes to the other celebrity felons for help. After all, Comisar does share one thing in common with actors Robert Downey Jr, Mark Wahlberg, and Tim Allen. They all served time in prison, and they all seem willing to help him. In fact, none of the stars that were asked to help Comisar have said no.

Comisar says, "Some of Hollywood's biggest stars did prison time. I'm very grateful that some of them have found it in their hearts to help me. Most actors come out of prison with a strong sense of compassion for others who suffered the same plight. These are the kind-hearted actors that will give me acting jobs in their movies. Now I can get a second chance." 

Comisar's publicist, Nanci Ryder, says, "I'm getting a very positive response from the Hollywood A-list felons. They all seem to want to help Steve. He grew up with a lot of these stars like Bob Downey. Surprisingly, not even one celebrity that was asked to help Steve has declined."

Comisar's attorney, Jeremy Gordon, says, "I talked to an iconic actor who wishes to remain anonymous. He told me, 'I put my actor friends in my films all the time. I can easily do the same for Steve. 'I truly believe Steve is going to nail this." 

Comisar's manager, Victor Kruglov, says, "Four of Robert Downey's best films grossed over one billion dollars. If Bob says Steve is in the movie, Steve is in the movie. This is a win-win situation. The star gets the accolades for doing a good deed, and Steve gets a second chance." 

Retired ICM talent agent, Barry Freed, adds, "America loves the Steve Comisar story. The public is going to flock to any movie he's in. The curiosity factor alone will boost domestic box office receipts. When Wesley Snipes got out of prison last year he immediately landed an NBC series. Everyone loves a good comeback." 

Comisar, now 53, grew up in Beverly Hills, California, with the original "Brat Pack" and has been acting since a very young age. He is scheduled to be released from prison in 2017.

Jailed Actor Steve Comisar Asks President Obama for an Early Release

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Sept. 1, 2015 /reuters/-- Steve Comisar is an actor who has appeared in dozens of movies, television shows, and commercials. He is also serving a federal prison sentence for fraud.


Through the President's clemency power, a sentence can be commuted and a prisoner can be released with the stroke of a pen. In July, Obama commuted the sentences of 48 federal prisoners. Comisar's petition should already be on the President's desk, ready for his next round of releases.


Comisar's attorney, Jeremy Gordon says: "Steve deserves an early release just as much, if not more, than the other offenders Obama is releasing. He has already served over 85 percent of his sentence for a non-violent crime. All of the other inmates being released are in prison for selling crack cocaine. The President plans to grant a lot more early releases before his term ends. I'm confident Steve will be one of them."


Comisar says, "I'm hoping the President will give me the same consideration that he gave to the other people he is releasing early. There are a lot of big stars who served time in prison that can really help me when I get out. With a little help from the President and Hollywood's celebrity felons, I really think I can make it. Everyone loves a good comeback."


Comisar's publicist, Nanci Ryder says, "Steve is also launching a non-profit charity that will help imprisoned actors. He's calling it, 'Stars Behind Bars.' Soon other actors in trouble with the law can get the help they need. We are planning a website, industry fundraisers, and monthly events hosted by Hollywood A-listers. This all begins when Steve is released."


Comisar, now 53, grew up in Beverly Hills with the original "Brat Pack" and has been acting since a very young age. He currently commands an enormous global, social media fan base which is growing each day. Without clemency from the President, Comisar will be released from prison in early 2017.
