DID YOU KNOW?…Here is a picture of Channing taken at the Sundance Film Festival in January of 2006 where he seems to be channeling a little bit of his tough charactor Antonio from A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.
There is a dramatic scene in AGTRYS where one of the characters has a stroke. Out of frustration, Channing’s character Antonio throws a table through the glass window of a door. This was a huge surprise to the director, cast, and crew, because it was not a part of the script. Channing had improvised it. He actually got so wrapped up in the scene, he nearly lost control. The rest of the cast managed to stay in character and finish the scene, and the director ended up liking Channing’s surprise improv so much he kept it as the final version.
