Dean has spent the last several years as an actor in LasVegas playing the stage version of Tony Soprano in The Soprano’s Last Supper, and acting on film in indie productions Bubblegum and Broken Fingers and The Longest Day. Though Mauro has played a variety of gangster and mob roles he says he is eager to play this kind of character for a change. “.I'm stoked to be playing Bob in this upcoming film. I take my acting seriously and always prepare for the characters I portray. but I got a feeling this one is gonna come a little easier than others.”
This also won’t be the first time Dean Mauro and Virtue’s writer and director Robert H. Gwinn have worked together either. In 2009 Mauro costarred in Gwinn’s directorial debut Deadly Renovations, due in theaters worldwide this year. (2012) In fact several members of that films cast are reteaming for Virtue including DJ Perry, Nathalie Ben-Kely, Tracilyn Jones, Anthony Hornus, and Hollywood legend, Lana Wood.
