PRLog - Jan. 11, 2012 - YUMA, Ariz. -- New York native and motorcycle rider Dean Mauro joins the cast of Robert H. Gwinn’s Virtue. The new genre film centers on a group of teens heading out to a local lake to celebrate graduation day, but on the way to the secluded spot they have a bit of a run in with a band of bikers. Dean has been an avid biker most of his life, and is thrilled to have the chance to ride on screen. “I got my first Bike when I was about 8 years old. Well, actually my older brother got it and we shared it. It was a Honda 50cc.” In Virtue, Mauro will be playing bike gang member Bob Garrison, right hand man to the group’s leader Johnny (Duke) Dukane played by DJ Perry.
