Vas Saranga [Interview]


Hello Folks! We have a very exciting interview for you all today with a brilliant young actor who is taking over hearts and minds on a daily basis. His name is Vas Saranga (or “Sarah” if you’re autocorrect won’t just let it go, haha), and he plays opposite Hayden Christensen in the  upcoming film Little Italy that is truly intriguing. I was immensely pleased to have Vas on the site to learn a little bit more about him and will definitely be following his career even closer in the future. In fact, I was just catching up on Season 2 of The Handmaid’s Tale…and who do you think I saw! Very exciting stuff. He is such a kind and talented actor, and we are so excited to have him grace our digital pages today!

So without further babbling from me, please enjoy some wonderful words from the brilliant Vas Saraga.

When did you first decide that you wanted to work in the world of acting? Was it an early ambition, or did you simply find yourself in this world one day?

The first time I saw Back to the Future I knew wanted to be in movies. I gave it more thought in high school when I started making student films, but I didn’t really jump into it until college.

One of your earliest roles was actually in part of a wonderful franchise that I have followed since its inception (almost 20 years ago!), which is American Pie. You were in 2007’s Beta House. How was your experience working on this project so early in your career?

The experience was one of the most memorable of my career because it was such an extravagant over the top comedy, so I got to improvise a lot, and just really have a ton of fun on set. Working with Eugene Levy was the icing on the cake.

If you were handed the opportunity to create and/or star in a biopic about any person of note in world history, who would it be?

I would absolutely love to play Preet Bharara, the former US Attorney for the Southern District of New York. He was known for prosecuting nearly 100 Wall Street executives for financial crimes. I think his life story would be riveting on film.

I understand you will be appearing in a very interesting film coming out soon entitled Little Italy. Can you tell us a bit about it? What can audiences expect to see from you?

Little Italy is a modern take on Romeo and Juliet set in the world of rival pizzerias. It’s a romantic comedy that brings the laughs, but with extra heart. It stars Emma Roberts and Hayden Christensen as well as a talented ensemble cast that includes Andrea Martin, Danny Aiello, and Alyssa Milano (among many others). I play a character named Jogi who works at Vince’s Pizzeria with Hayden’s character Leo. I’ll just say that Jogi gets into some really funny situations because of the rivalry between the pizza shops and his desire to be a ladies man!

What does the future hold for you?

I’ve co-written a feature film that’s currently in development, I’m pretty excited for it to get made. I’ve set my sights on acting in projects that I’ve written so hopefully the future holds lots of movies and maybe a TV show of my own.

Anything else you would like to plug to our readers?

If you’re catching up on The Handmaid’s Tale I have an appearance this season.

7) What was the last thing that made you smile?

My dog Freddy!
