ACTOR GARY COLE – TALKS ABOUT HIS ROLE IN DIVINE ACCESS THAT HITS THEATERS MAY 13TH, AND VIDEO ON DEMAND& ALL DIGITAL PLATFORMS MAY 17TH

You know Gary Cole from his many roles in TV and film, including his Emmy nominated performance in Veep, roles in Entourage, West Wing, Pineapple Express, Talladega Nights, The Office and much more.  He is talking about his new movie, “a sharp and funny satire,” DIVINE ACCESS, a darling of the film festivals and called “a quiet gem.” Starring with Billy Burke, Patrick Warburton and Sarah Shahi, Cole plays Reverend Guy Roy Davis.  The film will be in select theatres on May 13, and available everywhere by Video on Demand on May 17.

ABOUT THE MOVIE:
DIVINE ACCESS is equal parts comedy and drama.  Set in the south, it’s a road movie, a buddy picture and an often sweet, thought-provoking story of redemption.

Jack Harriman (Billy Burke) has seen it all.  Keenly aware of Jack’s penchant for discrediting religious zealots, Jack is asked to join a cable access television show produced by his friend Bob McCord (Patrick Warburton).   After humiliating the current host of the show, the Reverend Guy Roy Davis (Gary Cole), Jack’s popularity turns him into a spiritual celebrity and he takes to the road on a multi-city speaking tour accompanied by Nigel a self-proclaimed “catcher” (Joel David Moore).   Along the way Jack and Nigel are joined by Amber (Dora Madison), a down on her luck call-girl, and Marian (Sarah Shahi), an enigmatic beauty who challenges Jack’s beliefs and questions whether he has some deeper calling.

Forces both natural and supernatural lead Jack on a journey to discover his own spiritual truth, culminating in a final showdown with Guy Roy.  Ultimately, DIVINE ACCESS is a story of family, friendship and faith.
