Some actors are willing to go to extreme lengths to get into character. Case in point: Lou Taylor Pucci's decision to get a giant Viking tattoo on his thigh to prep for his role as Romeo Griggs in the TriBeCa feature, "Poor Boy."

And while an intense decision, Pucci's tattoo is a testament to just how authentic the characters in "Poor Boy" are. The film follows Romeo and Samson Griggs (played by Dov Tiefenbach), a pair of misfit brothers who, without any other family or direction in their lives, survive by hustling, gambling, and thieving around their neighborhood. Their strange and delusional headspace leads them to attempt to leave to go to California in pursuit of an even more complex con.

Whether it's the raw acting of Dov Tiefenbach, Lou Taylor Pucci, and Amy Ferguson who plays Cynthia Ravenblanket or the incredible visual narrative told by director, Robert Scott Wildes, "Poor Boy" has definitely become a can't-miss event.
